The first principle in developing large software systems is the open-closed principle (OCP). This principle seems asking for two conflict goals. How to realize the principle in the real software practice? What are the enabling technologies that can be used to implement the principle? This paper uses a case study to demonstrate the importance of the principle, the design methodology for realizing the principle, and its enabling technologies.
