9780130674791: Executable UML: How to Build Class Models

For all software engineering courses on UML, object-oriented analysis and modeling, and analysis/modeling for real-time or embedded software.

Executable UML is for students who want to apply object-oriented analysis and modeling techniques to real-world UML projects. Leon Starr presents the skills and techniques needed to build useful class models for creating precise, executable software specifications that generate target code in multiple languages and for multiple platforms. Leon, who wrote the definitive guide to Shlaer-Mellor modeling, emphasizes the practical use of executable UML modeling, presenting extensive examples from real-time embedded and scientific applications. Using the materials in his How to Build Shlaer-Mellor Object Models as a starting point, Leon presents an entirely new introduction to Executable UML, expresses all diagrams in Executable UML notation, and adds advanced new object modeling techniques.

From the Back Cover:

The practical guide to developing class models with Executable UML.

In Executable UML, Leon Starr shows how to build precise class models that form the foundation of rigorous software specifications. These specifications can be tested, debugged and optimized to generate code for multiple languages and platforms. Leon presents a wide range of examples from his projects in the fields of science and engineering-focusing on real-time environments where precise and accurate software specification is especially critical.

Using the materials in his classic How to Build Shlaer-Mellor Object Models as a starting point, Leon offers an introduction to Executable UML class models, expressing all diagrams in Executable UML notation with more object modeling techniques. Coverage includes:

  • Executable UML classes and attributes
  • Associations and relationships
  • Binary associations and association classes
  • Specialization-generalization relationships
  • Loop constraints
  • Reflexive, network, linear, and tree patterns for effective object modeling

Whether you're creating technical or business applications, Executable UML gives you the tools you need to build reliable software, readily deployed on a variety of specialized hardware and software platforms.

About the Author:

LEON STARR has been developing real-time and embedded software with executable models since 1985. His models have been used in factory material transport control systems, ultrasound diagnostic and cardiac pacing systems, gas chromatography and semiconductor wafer inspection systems, video post-production systems, and networked military battle simulators. The author of How to Build Shlaer-Mellor Object Models and Executable UML: A Case Study, he is a founding member and senior consultant at Model Integration, LLC in San Francisco, CA.
