Praise for Enterprise Patterns and MDA

“Ive never seen a system of business patterns as detailed as this one. The completeness that Arlow and Neustadt provide in these patterns is impressive. The explanations for why the patterns are formed the way they are and how theyre interconnected are incredibly thorough. The patterns presented here have the potential to impact business applications in the same way the ‘Gang of Four patterns have impacted general software development.”          —Steve Vinoski

             Chief Engineer of Product Innovation

              IONA Technologies

Enterprise Patterns and MDA is a detailed, yet very readable, guide to designing business applications using reusable model components and Model Driven Architecture. It deserves a place on every application designers desk.”          —Andrew Watson

             Vice President and Technical Director

             Object Management Group, Inc.

“Design patterns are generally acknowledged as an effective approach to developing robust and highly reusable software. Now that Model Driven Architecture is raising software design to ever-higher levels of abstraction, it is only natural that pattern concepts should find application in advanced modeling techniques. With this book, Arlow and Neustadt have greatly advanced the state of the art of MDA by defining both a theory and a methodology for applying the concept of Archetype Patterns to business software modeling.”          —John Poole

             Distinguished Software Engineer

             Hyperion Solutions Corporation

“The burgeoning field of Model Driven Architecture tools and worldwide support for the Unified Modeling Language are finally being met with high-quality books that explain standard modeling techniques in a way any developer can follow. This book meets an urgent need squarely and clearly, and explains with copious examples a powerful approach to building usable (and reusable!) assets and applications. Every enterprise developer needs this book.”          —Richard Mark Soley, Ph.D.

            Chairman and CEO

            Object Management Group

This book is a practical guide to applying Model Driven Architecture (MDA) and patterns in order to create business applications more easily. It provides you with a proven catalog of archetype patterns: high-value model components that can be easily incorporated into Unified Modeling Language (UML) models. Each archetype pattern allows you to understand and model a specific part of an enterprise system.

Enterprise Patterns and MDA teaches you how to customize any archetype pattern—such as Customer, Product, and Order—to reflect the idiosyncrasies of your own business environment. Because all the patterns work harmoniously together and have clearly documented relationships to each other, youll come away with a host of reusable solutions to common problems in business-software design.

This book shows you how using a pattern or a fragment of a pattern can save you months of work and help you avoid costly errors. Youll also discover how—when used in literate modeling—patterns can solve the difficult challenge of communicating UML models to broad audiences.

The configurable patterns can be used manually to create executable code. However, the authors draw on their extensive experience to show you how to tap the significant power of MDA and UML for maximum automation. Not surprisingly, the patterns included in this book are highly valuable; a blue-chip company recently valued a similar, but less mature, set of patterns at hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Use this practical guide to increase the efficiency of your designs and to create robust business applications that can be applied immediately in a business setting.

Book News Annotation:

The authors explain their theory behind developing a set of business archetype patterns that model common software packages, then provide eight patterns for simplifying the development of such software. Based on the unified modeling language (UML) activity diagrams, the patterns offer a consistent architecture and semantics for organizing information about parties across business domains, relationships between parties, goods and services, inventory management, order processing, payment, and business rules.
