Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Grady Booch, a renowned authority in software development, and Doug Bryan combined their Ada programming and software engineering expertise for the new edition of this best-selling book. Their up-to-date introduction to Ada programming provides a foundation for using the language with software engineering and object-oriented design. Programmers will find Software Engineering with Ada, Third Edition to be a complete reference for creating large-scale Ada systems and understanding the software engineering aspects of these systems. Features of the third edition include techniques for combining object-oriented design principles and software engineering to maximize the potential of Ada; extensive examples of small-sized code that will benefit new Ada programmers; six chapters devoted to design; five new large-scale programming exercises that build upon the software engineering principles developed in the design chapters; design projects on topics such as environment monitoring, database systems, and generic tree packages; an introduction to up-to-date object-oriented design methodology; and a new appendix on the Ada 9X program.

Book News Annotation:

New edition of a complete Ada reference that not only describes the details of Ada programming, but also suggests ways in which to best apply the features of the language in the creation of software systems. Presumes an understanding of the basic principles of programming.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The book supplies an intensive study of ANSI-standard Ada with a focus on software engineering and object-oriented design. The book reflects Grady Booch's expertise in object-oriented programming by introducing an object-oriented development method that exploits the power of Ada in managing complex software systems. This edition also contains a new chapter on Ada's impact on software engineering and the software crisis.

About the Author

Grady Booch, is the Chief Scientist at Rational Software Corporation and developer of the Booch Method of object-oriented analysis and design. He is also co-developer of the Unified Modeling Language (UML). Widely recognized for these and many contributions in the field, he is a popular speaker at technology conferences around the world. Booch has twice received Software Development magazine's coveted Jolt-Cola Product Excellence Award for his seminal text, Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with Applications.
