I have had the privilege of being a reviewer of Moti Ben-Ari's
forthcoming book on Software Engineering with Ada from John Wiley.
It has many good examples, fully coded, for OO issues.
Also, I have a manuscript in progress that I hope will be finished
in July in which I am dealing such issues in greater depth in the
the context of object-oriented programming.
Also, Dr. John Barnes, in an off-hand comment regarding some other
topic, mentioned that he intends to expand the coverage of this topic
along with storage-pool management the next revision of his book.
Since the topic of finalization has become something of a "hot topic"
recently, I am also preparing a column for JOOP to deal with it. The
input on this thread from Tucker, Tom Moran, and many others has helped
me consider what I should include in that column.
Thanks to everyone for their contribution.
