Product description

Amazon Review

Many working programmers have little time for keeping up with the latest advances from the world of software engineering. UML Distilled: Applying the Standard Object Modeling Language provides a quick, useful take on one of the field's most important recent developments: the emergence of the Unified Modeling Language (UML).

UML Distilled offers a useful perspective on what UML is and what it's good for. The author, an experienced software engineer, gives his own opinions of which diagrams are best to use. He is never doctrinaire and is always willing to put common sense design ahead of rigid adherence to models and documents. He runs through the basic notation used in UML for such design documents as use case, class, sequence, state, activity and deployment diagrams. In addition, he includes concise examples of the details of working with objects, with an excellent step-by-step rendition of many of the details involved in UML. The author even includes some actual C++ code so you can see what all these design documents lead to.

You'll need some idea of what software engineering is in order to benefit from this book. However, if you have the appropriate background, you'll find this book invaluable in understanding this emerging new standard, which has the potential to bring solid software engineering to many developers who have never used disciplined software design techniques before.


This work on UML - created by OO technology experts, Booch, Rumbaugh and Jacobson - offers detailed and practical guidance to the UML notation in the context of real world software development.The book also offers useful summaries of UML notation on the back and the front covers.
