Abstract: The present invention provides a method and apparatus for creating objects in an object-oriented environment, such as Java. An interface is selected for and along with an implementation object. The interface and the implementation object are morphed to create a dippable object in a new class that includes the selected interface. The dippable object is able to accept new behaviors though dips. The dippable object calls an instance of the implementation object in response to calls made to the interface.
