Captures what I've been doing & trying to teach 23 Nov. 1999
By Eric Adams - Published on
Format: Paperback
Database Modeling for Smarties is exactly that. This book captures the techniques that I have been using for a number of years but have not been able to capture concisely. I found the discussion of object-relational mapping very useful and would love to send copies to the database designers that I work with. The reading is easy and the only negative would be that the chapter on development team values & characteristics seems to be misplaced. However the chapter was good reading as an intermission in the middle of the book.

good introduction and high practical use 16 Aug. 2000
By Johannes Lutz - Published on
Format: Paperback
I would recommend this book. I have experience with database design (ORACLE) but object oriented design was more a mystery for me. Mr. Muller showed me that there is only a little step from entity-relationship modelling to modelling with UML. UML design also solves a lot of database design problems like reaching a 3rd (or higher) normal form. Another plus of this book is his in depth tutorial to apply the technics of UML to a relational database, to a object-relational and a object oriented database. Examples are for oracle databases and POET ODL for an object oriented database.

Excellent adaptation of the UML to database modelling 5 Nov. 1999
By Baboon - Published on
Format: Paperback
Mr. Muller provides a succinct explanation of the UML and how it applies to database models and the realities of the major DBMS on the market. He doesn't mince words, each line and paragraph are thought provoking and insightful. Choose a quiet place to read and dive in!

An excellent primer on UML for database designers! 17 Jun. 2000
By Andreas L. Matern - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent tutorial to using UML and sound object-oriented techniques for the express purpose of designing data models for a database. Well written, it deserves a place on every database designer's bookshelf.

Should be considered required reading 23 Feb. 2001
By Christopher P. Hubbard - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is perhaps the best book I've read about databases and UML. Muller provides insight about different RDBMS's and ORDMS's for each subject. The various characteristics of Oracle, Sybase and others are discussed in context to the subject of using UML to design databases. This is not a sales pitch for one product or another. My only complaints: there's no errata (though I'm not sure there needs to be one) and there's no online forum at the publishers site. I've enjoyed reading this book, Muller has kept this rather dry subject interesting.
