(OO) Structured around functional units. Object-oriented programming languages such as C++, SmallTalk and Java are designed to build software made up of objects: discrete bundles of functionality that can act on data only in certain pre-defined ways. This modular building-block approach makes complex software development tasks more flexible and easier to manage within a given programming environment. The emergence of object-oriented programming was a stepping stone to the development of componentization and subsequently of service-oriented architectures.
