Overview

“If you are a serious user of UML, there is no other book quite like this one. I have been involved with the UML specification process for some time, but I still found myself learning things while reading through this book–especially on the changes and new capabilities that have come with UML.”

Ed Seidewitz, Chief Architect, IntelliData Technologies Corporation

The latest version of the Unified Modeling Language–UML 2.0–has increased its capabilities as the standard notation for modeling software-intensive systems. Like most standards documents, however, the official UML specification is difficult to read and navigate. In addition, UML 2.0 is far more complex than previous versions, making a thorough reference book more essential than ever.

In this significantly updated and expanded edition of the definitive reference to the standard, James Rumbaugh, Ivar Jacobson, and Grady Booch–the UML’s creators–clearly and completely describe UML concepts, including major revisions to sequence diagrams, activity models, state machines, components, internal structure of classes and components, and profiles. Whether you are capturing requirements, developing software architectures, designing implementations, or trying to understand existing systems, this is the book for you.

Highlights include:

  • Alphabetical dictionary of articles covering every UML concept
  • Integrated summary of UML concepts by diagram type
  • Two-color diagrams with extensive annotations in blue
  • Thorough coverage of both semantics and notation, separated in each article for easy reference
  • Further explanations of concepts whose meaning or purpose is obscure in the original specifications
  • Discussion sections offering usage advice and additional insight into tricky concepts
  • Notation summary, with references to individual articles
  • An enhanced online index available on the book’s web site allowing readers to quickly and easily search the entire text for specific topics

The result is an indispensable resource for anyone who needs to understand the inner workings of the industry standard modeling language.
