Publisher Comments:

“Terrys style is always direct, approachable, and pragmatic. Abstraction is hard, and visualizing abstractions is as well, but here shell guide you in doing both using Rational Software Architect.”

—From the Foreword by Grady Booch, IBM Fellow

Master UML 2.0 Visual Modeling with IBM Rational Software Architect

Using IBM Rational Software Architect, you can unify all aspects of software design and development. It allows you to exploit new modeling language technology to architect systems more effectively and develop them more productively.

Now, two of IBMs leading experts have written the definitive, start-to-finish guide to UML 2-based visual modeling with Rational Software Architect. Youll learn hands-on, using a simplified case study thats already helped thousands of professionals master analysis, design, and implementation with IBM Rational technologies.

Renowned UML expert Terry Quatrani and J2EE/SOA evangelist Jim Palistrant walk you through visualizing all facets of system architecture at every stage of the project lifecycle. Whether youre an architect, developer, or project manager, youll discover how to leverage IBM Rationals latest innovations to optimize any project.

Coverage includes

  • Making the most of model-driven development with Rational Software Architects integrated design and development tools
  • Understanding visual modeling: goals, techniques, language, and processes
  • Beginning any visual modeling project: sound principles and best practices
  • Capturing and documenting functional requirements with use case models
  • Creating analysis models that begin to reveal your optimal system implementation
  • Building design models that abstract your implementation model and source code
  • Using implementation models to represent your systems physical composition, from subsystems to executables and data
  • Transforming these models to actual running code

The IBM Press developerWorks® Series is a unique undertaking in which print books and the Web are mutually supportive. The publications in this series are complemented by resources on the developerWorks Web site on ibm.com. Icons throughout the book alert the reader to these valuable resources.

Book News Annotation:

Two long-time users and advocates of IBM's object-oriented software introduce the fundamentals of visual modeling, offering a first and simple look at how a process, a language, and a tool may be used to create a blueprint of a system. They illustrate with a case study of a course registration system for a university. This is not, they warn, a complete guide to the Universal Modeling Language or to the Rational Unified Processes.
