This chapter describes the implementation discipline. It introduces the concepts of prototypes and incremental integration.
The implementation discipline has four purposes:

To implement classes and objects in terms of components (source files, binaries, executables, and others)
To test the developed components as units
To integrate into an executable system the results produced by individual implementers or teams
The scope of test within the implementation discipline is limited to unit test of individual components. System test and integration test are described in the test discipline (see Chapter 12). This ...
