Genericity aims at providing a very high level of abstraction in order, for instance, to separate the general shape of an algorithm from specific implementation details. Reaching a high level of genericity through regular object-oriented techniques has two major drawbacks, however: code cluttering (e.g. class / method proliferation) and performance degradation (e.g. dynamic dispatch). In this paper, we explore a potential use for the Context-Oriented programming paradigm in order to maintain a high level of genericity in an experimental image processing library, without sacrificing either the performance or the original object-oriented design of the application.
