Book Description

5 May 2006 0596009828 978-0596009823 1

"Since its original introduction in 1997, the Unified Modeling Language has revolutionized software development. Every integrated software development environment in the world--open-source, standards-based, and proprietary--now supports UML and, more importantly, the model-driven approach to software development. This makes learning the newest UML standard, UML 2.0, critical for all software developers--and there isn't a better choice than this clear, step-by-step guide to learning the language."
--Richard Mark Soley, Chairman and CEO, OMG

If you're like most software developers, you're building systems that are increasingly complex. Whether you're creating a desktop application or an enterprise system, complexity is the big hairy monster you must manage.



The Unified Modeling Language (UML) helps you manage this complexity. Whether you're looking to use UML as a blueprint language, a sketch tool, or as a programming language, this book will give you the need-to-know information on how to apply UML to your project. While there are plenty of books available that describe UML, Learning UML 2.0 will show you how to use it. Topics covered include:



  • Capturing your system's requirements in your model to help you ensure that your designs meet your users' needs


  • Modeling the parts of your system and their relationships


  • Modeling how the parts of your system work together to meet your system's requirements


  • Modeling how your system moves into the real world, capturing how your system will be deployed


Engaging and accessible, this book shows you how to use UML to craft and communicate your project's design. Russ Miles and Kim Hamilton have written a pragmatic introduction to UML based on hard-earned practice, not theory. Regardless of the software process or methodology you use, this book is the one source you need to get up and running with UML 2.0.



Russ Miles is a software engineer for General Dynamics UK, where he works with Java and Distributed Systems, although his passion at the moment is Aspect Orientation and, in particular, AspectJ. Kim Hamilton is a senior software engineer at Northrop Grumman, where she's designed and implemented a variety of systems including web applications and distributed systems, with frequent detours into algorithms development.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction 28 Oct 2008
Format:Paperback
This book is great introduction to UML 2.0. Its written for OO developers and all examples are Java which fit me to a T but may not suit everyone.
The style is good with lots of examples and each chapter can be read independently if you just need to refresh yourself about a certain diagram.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. 10 Aug 2013
By lavi
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I use this book all the time as a reference but originally to get a better understanding of UML, other guys I work with have also purchased after borrorwing mine.

A very good read, informative and enough detail to understand and apply to your own design.

UML isn't the most exciting topic, but this book does a great job. Its clear, easy to read and the subject order seems very logical. I'd recommend it for starting out learning UML.

4.0 out of 5 stars Genteel Intro 10 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Before this I had only picked up wind of UML as side lines on books on other topics. This really gives the sort of primer that every IT professional requires even if just only to be abreast of what is set to become standard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for my course! 10 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
As part of my degree I have an Object Oriented Methods module which revolves around applying UML to a system description. Unfortunately I don't appreciate the teaching style of my lecturer so I felt the need to buy this to bridge the gaps in his teaching, and I'm so glad I did.

O'Reilly books are great - their formulaic design makes each one incredibly easy to read; Miles and Hamilton provide a great resource for applying UML modeling principles and explain WHY you should do things incredibly well. I haven't finished the whole book (as I think it covers way more than my course entails) but I'm sure I will find use for it in the future.

Great book and saved my ass!
