    Good introduction to UML ...

    This book gives a very good introduction to UML. All UML diagrams - use case, activity, sequence, class, state chart, implementation etc - are explained in an easy manner. OCL (Object Constraint Language) is covered too. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn UML.

    An good book to learn UML

    I find this book an excellent hands-on tutorial to understand, read, draw, and use UML effectively. It has come just at the right time for me as I seek to develop my career as a Business Analyst. The effectiveness of system diagrams in analysis and design of a system is beyond any doubt. This book has helped me to understand the logic behind these diagrams and how to apply these in a system life cycle. I also like the progressive approach of the author. This book explains in detail how to read, draw, and use this visual modeling language to create clear and effective design for software development projects. It also teaches object-oriented concepts and how they relate to software design and analysis. It also covers Object Constraint Language (OCL), which allows users to refine their UML diagrams. Although my quest is to apply UML techniques in web-based application, a topic not covered by this book, but since I am a novice so I was looking for a book that can help me understand the basics and this book has done just that. I will recommend this book to analysts who seek to understand the basics of UML. It¿s a great book to build a strong foundation.
