"Object-Oriented Systems Analysis and Design using UML", 2nd edition, is the thoroughly revised and updated edition of this best-selling text. With over 20,000 copies sold world-wide, Bennett, McRobb, and Farmer's text is the definitive teaching resource for undergraduate Systems Analysis and Design courses. Presenting various lifecycle models, the book provides a framework for development using an iterative and incremental process and the major techniques from UML 1.4. It places analysis and design in the context of the whole systems life cycle, and includes generic analysis and design issues. Two practical case studies are used--one for illustrative examples and the other for practical exercises for the reader. The book is structured in four parts, which can be flexibly combined to suit the requirements of the syllabus. The first part provides the background to information systems analysis and design and to object-orientation. The second begins with two case study chapters, and focuses on the activities of requirements gathering and systems analysis, and the basic notation of Unified Modelling Language (UML). The third part covers system design and the use of UML for object design. The final part concludes by examining the later stages of the systems development life cycle and further advanced issues.
