"Design by Contract" or "Contract First"? 

Jeff Schneider
The latest is the term "design by contract(tm)". This is a term that Bertrand Meyer coined (and trademarked). He used it in the context of object oriented programming where the focus was on "pre- and post-conditions and class invariants". Don Box, Christian Weyer and others have favored the term "contract first" to describe a similar concept more suitable to web services.
