Object-Oriented Design with Applications has long been the essential reference to object-oriented technology, which, in turn, has evolved to join the mainstream of industrial-strength software development. In this third edition--the first revision in 13 years--readers can learn to apply object-oriented methods using new paradigms such as Java, the Unified Modeling Language (UML) 2.0, and .NET.
The authors draw upon their rich and varied experience to offer improved methods for object development and numerous examples that tackle the complex problems faced by software engineers, including systems architecture, data acquisition, cryptoanalysis, control systems, and Web development. They illustrate essential concepts, explain the method, and show successful applications in a variety of fields. You'll also find pragmatic advice on a host of issues, including classification, implementation strategies, and cost-effective project management.
New to this new edition are
- An introduction to the new UML 2.0, from the notation's most fundamental and advanced elements with an emphasis on key changes
- New domains and contexts
- A greatly enhanced focus on modeling--as eagerly requested by readers--with five chapters that each delve into one phase of the overall development lifecycle.
- Fresh approaches to reasoning about complex systems
- An examination of the conceptual foundation of the widely misunderstood fundamental elements of the object model, such as abstraction, encapsulation, modularity, and hierarchy
- How to allocate the resources of a team of developers and mange the risks associated with developing complex software systems
- An appendix on object-oriented programming languages
This is the seminal text for anyone who wishes to use object-oriented technology to manage the complexity inherent in many kinds of systems.
The first edition of Object-Oriented Design with Applications was instrumental in making object-oriented technology a practical reality--hundreds of projects applied Booch's notation and process to complex problems in diverse domains. In this eagerly-awaited new edition, Grady Booch draws upon the rich and varied results of these projects to offer improved methods for object development and a new, unified notation. With numerous examples, all of which are now implemented in C++, Booch illustrates essential concepts, explains the method, and shows successful applications in a variety of fields. You'll also find pragmatic advice on a host of issues including classification, implementation strategies, and cost-effective project management.
Features of the New Edition:
- Presents a new, unified notation that incorporates the best ideas from Booch's notation and other widely-used methods
- Uses C++, rapidly emerging as a standard programming language for object development, in all programming examples and applications
- Includes new examples of real world projects, including a client/server architecture and an application framework
- Distinguishes between good and bad object-oriented analysis and design and shows how to evaluate architectural tradeoffs to manage complexity
- Includes extensive new detail on the process and pragmatics of object-oriented analysis and design
This is the essential reference for anyone who implements or manages object technologies, or who wishes to begin exploration of this important new paradigm.
