Book Description

Globe-trotting travelers have long resorted to handy, pocket-size dictionaries as an aid to communicating across the language barrier. Dan Pilone's UML 2.0 Pocket Reference is just such an aid for on-the-go developers who need to converse in the Unified Modeling Language (UML). Use this book to decipher the many UML diagrams you'll encounter on the path to delivering a modern software system.


Updated to cover the very latest in UML, you'll find coverage of the following UML 2.0 diagram types:

  • Class diagrams
  • Component diagrams*
  • Sequence diagrams*
  • Communication diagrams*
  • Timing diagrams*
  • Interaction Overview diagrams*
  • Package diagrams*
  • Deployment diagrams*
  • Use case diagrams
  • Composite structure diagrams*
  • Activity diagrams*
  • Statechart diagrams*
  • * New or expanded coverage in this edition

Also new in this edition is coverage of UML's Object Constraint Language (OCL). Using OCL, you can specify more narrowly the functionality described in a given diagram by recording limits that are the result of business rules and other factors.


The UML 2.0 Pocket Reference travels well to meetings and fits nicely into your laptop bag. It's near impossible to memorize all aspects of UML, and with this book along, you won't have to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very handy 1 Aug. 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thought this did what it was supposed to, i.e. be a pocket reference. Won't give you all the answers (you'd need a much bigger text) but good for reminders.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful reference 20 Jun. 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is a useful reference for UML. However do not expect to be able to learn UML from this title. Use for revision or reference purposes only.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small diagrams will make eyes bleed 17 Aug. 2010
By David G. Harding - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'd give the book 5 stars but Figures 99,100,101 have caused me to have a massive headache because they are compressed way to much. If I was younger or had a magnifying glass it wouldn't be a problem :-). Other than that the book is a great way to get a synopsis of the different diagrams. It does what it advertises and it is definitely worth the $10.

By Jill McKibben - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An instructor recommended this booklet to the whole class as a good pocket reference to UML. I'm glad I followed his advice. This is a good thing to have around for easy reference.

1.0 out of 5 stars diagrams are faulty 27 Aug. 2013
By Albert Lingelbach Jr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An important aspect of UML diagrams is dashed vs solid lines. The text clearly describes and differentiates between the two, but in the example diagrams it is not possible to distinguish between dashed and dotted lines - they look the same, so either the diagrams are wrong, or they're pixelated to the point of uselessness. Because the diagrams are critical to the content, I think this makes the book unforgivably flawed.
1.0 out of 5 stars Pages were falling out of the binding 3 Oct. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Um, yeah...this really shouldn't have been sold. When I opened up the (tiny) book, which was about the size of my hand, the pages came unstuck from the glued binding. This should have seriously been tossed into the recycling bin, not sold. The book was in crappy condition. I can't even read it because I get stressed out trying to keep the pages from falling all over the place.
