Overview

Master the Unified Modeling Language, the new standard for object orientation.

It's not enough just to learn an object-oriented language. A proficient programmer must also have the ability to design robust, scalable, maintainable systems. Applying UML and Patterns was written especially to provide the foundation for a complete understanding of the object paradigm, and how to put it to practical use.

Applying UML and Patterns provides beginning object programmers with a detailed activity roadmap to guide them through each step of requirements, analysis, design, and coding. This book strongly emphasizes translating theoretical concepts to practical applications, including:

  • Mapping object-oriented diagrams directly to Java code
  • Expressing models using UML
  • Integrating patterns for analysis and design
  • Creating layered architectures
  • Building frameworks


Using a single integrated case study throughout the book, Applying UML and Patterns provides a comprehensive, hands-on approach that gives a thorough grounding to beginning and intermediate programmers.
