Object-Oriented Methods

Overview

The field of object orientation has evolved dramatically in the past several years, most recently with the introduction of the United Modeling Language (UML) - a standard approach to notation and modeling for object-oriented analysis and design. Now, world-renowned IT strategist James Martin, together with James Odell - a leader on the UML standardization effortjoin forces to deliver an insightful introduction to object-oriented methods using UML.

Overview

The field of object orientation has evolved dramatically in the past several years, most recently with the introduction of the United Modeling Language (UML) - a standard approach to notation and modeling for object-oriented analysis and design. Now, world-renowned IT strategist James Martin, together with James Odell - a leader on the UML standardization effortjoin forces to deliver an insightful introduction to object-oriented methods using UML. This timely, authoritative, in-depth exploration of object-oriented analysis gives you a formal foundation for modeling both new software and new business processes. Object orientation and UML enable you to model regardless of language, to organize coherently all the technologies you wish to use, and to create designs that can evolve gracefully as new technologies and approaches come along. Object-Oriented Methods: A Foundation, UML Edition gives you the intellectual framework to make the most of object orientation no matter how you intend to apply it. Odell and Martin introduce more advanced structuresincluding constraints, rules, meta-modeling, power types, and dynamic and multiple classification - which make it possible to describe and specify systems with greater ease and power. They demonstrate the UML's approach to modeling object structure and behavior; review finite-state machine and scenario-based modeling; and present basic considerations for designing and implementing systems modeled with UML.

This book presents those concepts and techniques that support almost any system development approach--whether it involves computers, people, or machines. It considers object structure, object behavior and more advanced concepts such as composition, structural constraints, rules, using rules and diagrams, meta-modeling, and power types.

New edition of a guide to understanding object orientation using the new Unified Modeling Language. Thirty chapters and an appendix present fundamental concepts followed by more advanced structures including constraints, rules, meta-modeling, power types, and dynamic and multiple classification. They demonstrate the UML's approach to modeling object structure and behavior, review finite-state machine and scenario-based modeling, and present basic considerations for designing and implementing systems modeled with UML.
