The Road to the Unified Software Development Process

Ivar Jacobson, one of the Three Amigos of Rational, follows his fellow amigos, Grady Booch and James Rumbaugh, with the publication of The Road to the Unified Software Development Process, his own collection of the best of his work. Together with Stefan Bylund, Dr Jacobson has gathered the best of his articles from Object Magazine, JOOP, and ROAD, and updated them to reflect current trends in the industry. This book not only presents the best of his work, but it also tracks the development of the new Unified Software Development Process. This book is an excellent reference for software professionals who are interested in analysis and design. It provides real-world experience in developing quality software through disciplined engineering.
