"This book manages to convey the practical use of UML 2 in clear and understandable terms with many examples and guidelines. Even for people not working with the Unified Process, the book is still of great use. UML 2 and the Unified Process, Second Edition is a must-read for every UML 2 beginner and a helpful guide and reference for the experienced practitioner."

--Roland Leibundgut, Technical Director, Zuehlke Engineering Ltd.

"This book is a good starting point for organizations and individuals who are adopting UP and need to understand how to provide visualization of the different aspects needed to satisfy it. "

--Eric Naiburg, Market Manager, Desktop Products, IBM Rational Software

This thoroughly revised edition provides an indispensable and practical guide to the complex process of object-oriented analysis and design using UML 2. It describes how the process of OO analysis and design fits into the software development lifecycle as defined by the Unified Process (UP).

UML 2 and the Unified Process contains a wealth of practical, powerful, and useful techniques that you can apply immediately. As you progress through the text, you will learn OO analysis and design techniques, UML syntax and semantics, and the relevant aspects of the UP. The book provides you with an accurate and succinct summary of both UML and UP from the point of view of the OO analyst and designer.

This book provides

  • Chapter roadmaps, detailed diagrams, and margin notes allowing you to focus on your needs
  • Outline summaries for each chapter, making it ideal for revision, and a comprehensive index that can be used as a reference

New to this edition:

  • Completely revised and updated for UML 2 syntax
  • Easy to understand explanations of the new UML 2 semantics
  • More real-world examples
  • A new section on the Object Constraint Language (OCL)
  • Introductory material on the OMG's Model Driven Architecture (MDA)

The accompanying website provides

  • A complete example of a simple e-commerce system
  • Open source tools for requirements engineering and use case modeling
  • Industrial-strength UML course materials based on the book

I've been a business/systems analyst for about 12 years, and read about 2-3 books a year to keep upto date. I went on a UML course, and this book was recommended by the course tutor.
I think its one of the best UML books I've ever read (and I've read about 20), and indeed one of the best books on analysis I've ever read. What I really like about it is that there are lots and lots of example models, so you're left in no doubt about what the message is and you get to see lots of ways of modelling scenarios.
I will definitely be reading their next book.

Format: Paperback
Up-to-date, accurate and lucid, with a modern, helpful layout. Of the half-dozen or so books I've tried to use at college, this one stands head and shoulders above the rest. I found it easy to use as a text-book for initial learning, and later on as a reference book for practical work. The chapter on OCL was especially useful.
I'm a veteran design engineer. This one is staying on my book-shelf.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having recently read Craig Larmen's: Applying UML and Patterns, I wanted a book that could help me better understand how to use UML to accurately model and design systems - in particular object oriented software systems. This book has exceeded my expectations.

This book is nearly 600 pages thick, but the contents is densely packed with useful information. It is a comprehensive book that not only explains UML in depth and with clarity, it also explains in detail how these diagrams can be used effectively in the development and design of software systems. Most importantly it tells you how to make UML useful, meaningful, and understandable.

The book is well structured. I am reading this book cover to cover, and each chapter is logical and well thought out. It leads you through the Unified Process from requirements gathering to implementation and deployment - and tells you what aspect of UML should be applied through each of these stages. It also provides you with summary tips and notes in the side margins to help highlight important points and ideas.

The main focus and topic of this book however is fleshing out the problem domain - finding key candidate classes, operations, relationships etc. As well as how to use the information and elaborating it for the design of the final system i.e. refining the diagrams to include greater detail for implementation, incorporating design issues, outsourcing etc.

This book is mainly for those who want a better understanding of how to use UML to design software systems (in a visual manner - diagrams). Or those who look at UML diagrams with confusion and want a better understanding about what they mean - and ultimately how to construct your own.

A word of warning, this book does take a while to get through.

I have read a few UML books in the past and found myself occasionally struggling with some of the many model types and syntax when trying to model with UML, however this book shows how the whole thing fits together. A recommended read.
