Publisher Comments:

Applying Use Case Driven Object Modeling with UML: An Annotated e-Commerce Example is a practical, hands-on guide to putting use case methods to work in real-world situations. This workbook is a companion to Use Case Driven Object Modeling with UML. It bridges the gap between the theory presented in the main book and the practical issues involved in the development of an Internet e-commerce application.

Uniquely conceived as a workbook and featuring as a running example an e-commerce system for an online bookstore, Applying Use Case Driven Object Modeling with UML examines design in detail, demonstrating the most common design mistakes and the correct design solutions. The hands-on exercises allow you to detect, identify, and correct critical errors on your own, before reviewing the solutions provided in the book.

Structured around the proven ICONIX Process, this workbook presents a streamlined approach to UML modeling designed to avoid analysis paralysis without skipping analysis and design. The book presents the four key phases of this minimalist approach to use case driven design--domain modeling, use case modeling, robustness analysis, and sequence diagramming--and for each topic provides an overview, detailed discussion, list of common mistakes, and a set of exercises for honing object modeling and design skills.

The three chapters on reviews are also unique. The authors devote a chapter each to requirements review, preliminary design review, and critical design review. This focus on "designing quality in" by teaching how to review UML models fills a major gap in the published literature.

Through examples, Applying Use Case Driven Object Modeling with UML shows you how to avoid more than seventy specific design errors, as illustrated by the "Top 10" error lists included as a handy key on the inside covers and within each chapter. With the information, examples, and exercises found here, you will develop the knowledge and skills you need to apply use case modeling more effectively to your next application.


Book News Annotation:

Situated between the very large Rational Unified Process and the very small eXtreme programing approach, the ICONIX process makes use of the Unified Modeling Language. The authors overview this process which draws on all these methodologies, and bring reality to theory via a running Internet Bookstore example and exercises. Appendices include part of a model report (available in full from an auxiliary Web site), and use case documentation. A supporting workbook and CD-ROM are also available. Both authors are with ICONIX Software Engineering, Inc.

About the Author

Doug Rosenberg, of ICONIX Software Engineering, Inc., has been providing system development tools and training for nearly two decades, with particular emphasis on object-oriented methods.

He has produced over a dozen multimedia training courses on object technology, including COMPREHENSIVE COM and COMPLETE CORBA, and is the author of several Addison-Wesley titles.

Kendall Scott is a UML trainer and consultant. With more than sixteen years of experience as a technical writer, he is skilled in converting complex, technical material into understandable and easy-to-use manuals.
