This book is a lucid and practical introduction to thinking and designing with objects and creating systems that are well crafted, robust, and maintainable.
Developers and students will learn object-oriented analysis and design (OOA/OOD) through three iterations of two cohesive, start-to-finish case studies. These case studies incrementally introduce key skills, essential OO principles and patterns, UML notation, and best practices. You won't just learn UML diagrams - you'll learn how to apply UML in the context of OO software development.
Drawing on his unsurpassed experience as a mentor and consultant, Larman helps you understand evolutionary requirements and use cases, domain object modeling, responsibility-driven design, essential OO design, layered architectures, "Gang of Four" design patterns, GRASP, iterative methods, an agile approach to the Unified Process (UP), and much more. This edition's extensive improvements include
- A stronger focus on helping you master OOA/D through case studies that demonstrate key OO principles and patterns, while also applying the UML
- New coverage of UML 2, Agile Modeling, Test-Driven Development, and refactoring
- Many new tips on combining iterative and evolutionary development with OOA/D
- Updates for easier study, including new learning aids and graphics
- New college educator teaching resources
- Guidance on applying the UP in a light, agile spirit, complementary with other iterative methods such as XP and Scrum
- Techniques for applying the UML to documenting architectures
- A new chapter on evolutionary requirements, and much more
- Craig Larman serves as chief scientist at Valtech, a leading technology consultancy with offices throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. He is known throughout the worldwide software community as an expert and coach in OOA/D and design patterns, agile/iterative methods, an agile approach to the Unified Process (UP), and modeling with the UML. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in computer science from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia.
