Software Engineering 7TH Editionby Ian Sommerville
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Software Engineering 8
The eighth edition of the best-selling introduction to software engineering is now updated with three new chapters on state-of-the-art topics.
New chapters in the 8th edition
Ø Security engineering, showing youhow you can design software to resist attacks and recover from damage;
Ø Service-oriented software engineering, explaininghow reusable web services can be used to develop new applications;
Ø Aspect-oriented software development, introducing new techniques based on the separation of concerns.
Ø Includes the latest developments in software engineering theory and practice, integrated with relevant aspects of systems engineering.
Ø Extensive coverage ofagile methods andreuse.
Ø Integrated coverage of system safety, security and reliability illustrating best practice in developing critical systems.
Ø Two running case studies (an information system and a control system) illuminate different stages of thesoftware lifecycle.

Book News Annotation:
This undergraduate textbook describes software requirements specification, software design processes, different approaches to software development, and verification and validation techniques, then addresses some issues to consider when managing people, costs, and quality within a project. The seventh edition adds chapters on application architectures, rapid software development, component- based software engineering, and software evolution.

THE most current Software Engineering text in the market quality trusted coverage, practical case studies, strong lecturer support.
Software Engineering presents a broad perspective on software systems engineering, concentrating on widely used techniques for developing large-scale systems. The objectives of this seventh edition are to include new material on iterative software development, component-based software engineering and system architectures, to emphasize that system dependability is not an add-on but should be considered at all stages of the software process, and not to increase the size of the book significantly.
To this end the book has been restructured into 6 parts, removing the separate section on evolution as the distinction between development and evolution can be seen as artificial. New chapters have been added on:
Socio-technical Systems - discussing the context of software in a broader system composed of other hardware and software, people, organisations, policies, procedures and laws.
Application System Architectures - to teach students the general structure of application systems such as transaction systems, information systems and embedded control systems. The chapter covers 6 common system architectures with an architectural overview and discussion of the characteristics of these types of system.
Iterative Software Development - looking at prototyping and adding new material on agile methods and extreme programming.
Component-based Software Engineering - introducing the notion of a component, component composition and component frameworks and covering design with reuse.
Software Evolution - revising the presentation of the 6th edition to cover re-engineering and software change in a single chapter.
The book supports students taking undergraduate or graduate courses insoftware engineering, and software engineers in industry needing to update their knowledge.
