Many modern object-oriented languages (such as C++ and Java) allow the use of procedural and data encapsulation, as well as dynamic dispatch (virtual functions). Ben Flynn (Haverford '99) and I have written a paper describing a conflict between encapsulation and the traditional implementation of dynamic dispatch, and demonstrated that this conflict can be resolved without compromising efficiency of dynamic dispatch. An earlier version of this work appeared at MASPLAS '99) and as Ben's senior thesis.
