Leverage the full power of objects and UML in any software development process!-- Object-oriented analysis and design: a practical, example-driven introduction.-- Thoroughly updated: New coverage of UML 1.4, updated Java code examples, and new techniques for solving problems that can't be solved by UML alone!-- Techniques for creating more effective use case, class, behavioral, and implementation diagrams.This example-rich book will show any developer or analyst how to leverage the full power of object technology and UML in software development. Fully updated throughout, this edition reflects the new UML 1.4 standard and presents important new techniques for solving problems that can't be solved by UML alone. Experienced object developer and mentor Bernd Oestereich begins with an entirely new two-chapter introduction to object-oriented analysis and design. Coverage includes a full chapter on use case diagrams; detailed introductions to the basic and relational elements of class diagrams; as well as extensive introductions both behavioral and implementation diagrams. Along the way, Oestereich shows how to extend the power of UML with advanced techniques such as stereotypes and CASE tool use case templates. This is also the first object-oriented analysis and design book with in-depth coverage of the Object Constraint Language (OCL), a powerful, UML-based modeling tool for specifying a wide array of object constraints, conditions, and guards.
