In this paper we consider the ontology behind Object Oriented programming languages. We show that two conceptual primitives are missing: relations and roles. We simulate relations in a programming language by means of objects. To introduce roles we provide an ontological definition of roles and use it to extend the Java language.

Abstract

In this paper we consider the ontology behind Object Oriented programming languages. We show that two conceptual primitives are missing: relations and roles. We simulate relations in a programming language by means of objects. To introduce roles we provide an ontological definition of roles and use it to extend the Java language.
