Smalltalk Graphics Framework

KyleBrown and BobbyWoolf have been working to describe the Graphics Frameworks in each dialect of Smalltalk in terms of the recurring Design Patterns found in each.

For example, we have described how Composite is used in each dialect to represent "Views within Views". We use many more of the GangOfFour patterns to describe other parts of the frameworks. Finally, we tied the frameworks together with a pattern we call PaperPenAndPerson. Another original pattern is a generalization of Observer we called SelfAddressedStampedEnvelope.

We recently presented our results as a tutorial at the SmalltalkSolutions conference. We will be presenting again at OOPSLA'95 and at Object-Expo Europe '95.
