Product description


The Unified Modeling Language (UML) has gained acceptance as the de facto standard for modeling object software systems -- and, with this book, UML proves itself as an architectural description language, as well. Leading component developers John Cheesman and John Daniels show how to use UML 1.3 to specify and design any mid-to-large-size system utilizing server-side component technologies -- and, along the way, introduce powerful rules and guidelines for enhancing any component architecture. First and foremost, UML Components focuses on process: design processes for producing large-scale component-based systems that can be implemented through existing project management processes. Second, the book offers detailed, expert techniques for using UML 1.3 notation and diagrams to create component specifications that can support change, by allowing for easy substitution as new business problems and technical opportunities arise. The book includes detailed coverage of the Object Constraint Language, practical techniques for configuring and using UML tools, and a complete, start-to-finish case study.

From the Author

The book that tells you how to combine EJB and COM+ with UML
We wrote this book to help those of you who want to use UML to describe components built using technologies such as EJB and COM+. A technology-independent specification of a component is very useful in providing a more abstract view. UML, together with OCL, provides a mechanism for putting precision into the abstract specifications.

Other books provide an overview of UML, but this book explains specifically how to use UML to specify components. Most importantly, it also provides a simple step-by-step process for moving from requirements to component specifications.
