The Unified Modeling Language Reference Manual
James Rumbaugh

Dec 1998
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Written by the three pioneers behind the Unified Modeling Language (UML) standard, The Unified Modeling Language Reference Manual provides an excellent real-world guide to working with UML. This title provides expert knowledge on all facets of today's UML standard, helping developers who are encountering UML on the job for the first time to be more productive.

The book begins with a history of UML, from structured design methods of the '60s and '70s to the competing object-oriented design standards that were unified in 1997 to create UML. For the novice, the authors illustrate key diagram types such as class, use case, state machine, activity, and implementation. (Of course, learning these basic diagram types is what UML is all about. The authors use an easy-to-understand ticket-booking system for many of their...



UML Distilled: A Brief Guide to the Standard Object Modeling Language, 3rd Edition
Martin Fowler
0321193687
September 2003
Textbook Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The second edition of Martin Fowler's bestselling UML Distilled provides updates to the Unified Modeling Language (UML) without changing its basic formula for success. It is still arguably the best resource for quick, no-nonsense explanations of using UML.

The major strength of UML Distilled is its short, concise presentation of the essentials of UML and where it fits within today's software development process. The book describes all the major UML diagram types, what they're for, and the basic notation involved in creating and deciphering them. These diagrams include use cases; class and interaction diagrams; collaborations; and state, activity, and physical diagrams. The examples are always clear, and the explanations cut to the fundamental design logic.

For the second edition, the material has been reworked for use...

The Unified Software Development Process
Ivar Jacobson
0201571692
Feb 1999
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
A software process defines the steps required to create software successfully. Written by the same authors who brought you the Unified Modeling Language (UML), The Unified Software Development Process introduces a new standard for creating today's software that will certainly be useful for any software developer or manager who is acquainted with UML.

Early sections introduce four basic principles of the unified process: that software should stress use cases (which show how it interacts with users), that the process is architecture-centric, and that it is iterative and incremental. The authors then apply these principles to their software process, which involves everything from gathering system requirements to analysis, design, implementation, and testing. The use-case examples are excellent and include concrete examples...



Advanced Use Case Modeling

Book Info
(Pearson Education) Presents a process for creating and maintaining use case models in a customizable framework. Topics covered include how to keep a use case modeling effort on track, tips and pitfalls in use case modeling, effects of use cases on user interface design, and guidelines for quality in use case modeling. Softcover. DLC: Computer software--Development.

From the Inside Flap
In this rapidly changing business and technological environment, use case modeling has emerged as one of the premier techniques for defining business processes and software systems. Business engineers now employ use cases to define complex business processes across lines of business and even to define entire businesses. Use cases are also the standard for defining requirements for the software...


Aspect-Oriented Software Development with Use Cases

Book Description
What Is Aspect-Oriented Programming? That you have picked up this book tells us that you are a member of the software development community: a tester, a developer, a project leader, a project manager, an architect, an analyst, or a member involved in one of the many other aspects of developing. We also know that you are someone who wants to improve the way you develop software. You want your system to be more maintainable, more extensible, more reusable, and if you are a project leader, you want your team to be more productive. You know that these goals are not always easy to achieve. Why is software development so difficult? One reason is that there are many things to watch out for. On the human side, you have to watch out for time, budget, resources, skills, and so forth. Frequently, as a team member, you...

Book Description
Why Bother with Use Cases? WHAT ARE "USE CASES" ALL ABOUT? In a world where it seems we already have too much to do, and too manythings to think about, it seems the last thing we need is something new thatwe have to learn. As Eric Sevareid observed, the chief cause of problems issolutions. But use cases do solve a problem with requirements: with strict declarativerequirements it's hard to describe steps and sequences of events. To seewhy, let's consider a simple example: Example Some requirements that must be satisfied by an automated teller system: The system shall allow customers to withdraw cash from their accounts. The system shall ensure that the customer's account is never overdrawn. If the customer attempts to overdraw the account, the system will allow the account to be overdrawn, up to a specified...

Software reuse sounds great in principle (why rewrite code you have always written once?), but converting principle to practice has proved daunting. Software Reuse explains what it takes to build reusable software, from business characteristics to engineering requirements to techniques you can implement during design stages.

Book Review
One of the most important recent developments in software engineering is the Unified Modeling Language (UML) standard for documenting software designs. Written by UML's inventors (the so-called Three Amigos of software engineering), The Unified Modeling Language User Guide provides a very appealing guide to all the fundamentals of using UML effectively. The book opens with a basic tour of the essential concepts and modeling diagrams used in UML, including class diagrams, use case diagrams, and basic modeling principles. The authors pay close attention to modeling classes (and documenting the relationships between classes) as well as use case diagrams (which show how software will be used by various actors in a system). This book mixes in a little software-engineering theory, too, but it makes use of clear examples and actual...
