Rating

"This book manages to convey the practical use of UML 2 in clear and understandable terms with many examples and guidelines. Even for people not working with the Unified Process, the book is still of great use. UML 2 and the Unified Process, Second Edition is a must-read for every UML 2 beginner and a helpful guide and reference for the experienced practitioner."

--Roland Leibundgut, Technical Director, Zuehlke Engineering Ltd.

"This book is a good starting point for organizations and individuals who are adopting UP and need to understand how to provide visualization of the different aspects needed to satisfy it. "

--Eric Naiburg, Market Manager, Desktop Products, IBM Rational Software

This thoroughly revised edition provides an indispensable and practical guide to the complex process of object-oriented analysis and design using UML 2. It describes how the process of OO analysis and design fits into the software development lifecycle as defined by the Unified Process (UP).

UML 2 and the Unified Process contains a wealth of practical, powerful, and useful techniques that you can apply immediately. As you progress through the text, you will learn OO analysis and design techniques, UML syntax and semantics, and the relevant aspects of the UP. The book provides you with an accurate and succinct summary of both UML and UP from the point of view of the OO analyst and designer.

This book provides

  • Chapter roadmaps, detailed diagrams, and margin notes allowing you to focus onyour needs
  • Outline summaries for each chapter, making it ideal for revision, and a comprehensive index that can be used as a reference

New to this edition:

  • Completely revised and updated for UML 2 syntax
  • Easy to understand explanations of the new UML 2 semantics
  • More real-world examples
  • A new section on the Object Constraint Language (OCL)
  • Introductory material on the OMG's Model Driven Architecture (MDA)

The accompanying website provides

  • A complete example of a simple e-commerce system
  • Open source tools for requirements engineering and use case modeling
  • Industrial-strength UML course materials based on the book
