The Unified Modelling Language (UML) has emerged as the de-facto standard for building Object-Oriented software. It has been defined as the graphical language for visualizing, specifying, constructing, and documenting the objects of a software-intensive system and it is extensively used in various software systems and applications. Here is a book that makes learning UML enjoyable and pragmatic. Applying UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design and Iterative Development (English) 3rd Edition by Craig Larman incrementally introduces UML as an intuitive language for specifying the artefacts of object analysis and design. It is highly recommended and has remained the world's number one business sand college introduction to "thinking in objects" and using the insights in object-oriented analysis and design in the real-world scenarios. With this edition, the book has been updated to reflect the new UML 2 standard and this helps you master the art of object design. This in turn promotes high-impact, iterative, and skilful agile modelling practices. Who can benefit from this book? Developers and students can use this book to glean insights on object-oriented analysis and design (OOA/D) through three iterations of two cohesive, start-to-finish case studies. Over time, they will be introduced to key skills, essential OO principles and patterns, UML notation and best practices. It's not about learning UML diagrams, this book will also help you apply UML in the context of OO software development. Anyone interested in studying UML must be proficient in domain object modelling, 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. These are some of the aspects covered in this book. In this edition, there is a stronger focus on helping professionals and students master OOA/D through case studies that demonstrate key OO principles and patterns, while also applying the UML New coverage of UML 2, Agile Modelling, Test-Driven Development, and refactoring. You will also gain new tips on combining iterative and evolutionary development with OOA/D Updates for easier study, including new learning aids and graphics. Learning UML, The Interesting Way
Since its introduction, UML has revolutionised software development. All integrated software development environments in the world supports UML or a model-driven approach to software development. There are various modelling diagrams at the centre of UML including use case diagrams, class diagrams, object diagrams, sequence diagrams and more. UML is increasingly being used in conjunction with a wide range of software lifecycles and development processes as well. Learning the newest UML standard, is critical for all software developers and even students who are preparing for a career in the field of software development. For those looking for a reference book, there isn't a better choice than this clear, step-by-step guide to learning the language.
