How do you design XML-based B2B systems that successfully address the needs of everyone involved? With UML. But today's e-business systems are often quite different from the systems modeled in most UML books. In this book, David Carlson takes on every key aspect of modeling them, from the standpoint of five key stakeholders: consumers, business analysts, web application specialists, system integration specialists, and content developers.
As Carlson points out, XML offers an excellent syntax for exchanging data and documents, but communication among all the players in today's inter-business systems also requires shared models of underlying domain semantics, and of e-commerce processes and policies.
Carlson first shows how to model system requirements with use cases, defining the roles and functional requirements of each stakeholder group. Next, he walks through modeling processes and communication policies that coordinate sequences of activities among multiple business partners. Finally, he shows how to model business vocabularies robust enough to handle all messages, from short and simple to long and complex.
The book is full of UML class, sequence, and activity diagrams, and every chapter ends with "steps for success" that show you exactly how to translate principles into action. (Bill Camarda)
