Intentional Programming

Definition - What does Intentional Programming mean?

Intentional programming is the process by which application functions are rendered to simulate the way a computer manipulates the application. To determine if the intentional programming process has succeeded or not, the programmer must compare the intention of the developer with what is accomplished by the application functions.

Charles Simonyi is credited with the first intentional programming during his software development work at Microsoft.

This term is also know as, or is used with reference to, intentional software.

Techopedia explains Intentional Programming

Intentional software starts by defining the ultimate goal of each function of the application, using the “what you see is what you get” (WYSIWYG) concept. The final product of the application is then generated by the IP system automatically.

The domain workbench system is responsible for applying a sequence of changes aiming at realizing the required functioning of the application.

Programming languages typically assign symbolic names to each of its programming elements in the form of text corresponding with a certain source code. Intentional software keeps track of each name used to refer to every programming entity through both a unique identifier and a symbolic name.
