Software engineers, project managers, and programmers should welcome this fully integrated approach to the software development process. This comprehensive guide provides a complete review of the three critical components in successful software development - software process, development techniques, and automation - and thoroughly examines the interrelationships among them. Filed with practical advice and real-world examples, this guide compares and contrasts the most popular software development techniques, including object-oriented methods, prototyping, and data-oriented methods, and demonstrates how to select appropriate techniques and CASE tools for the specific applications. The book provides detailed coverage of models reflecting the latest advances in software development, as well as more traditional models. Included is the work of such industry leaders as Peter Coad, Stephen Mellor, James Martin, Sally Shlaer, and Ed Yourdon. Also included are a concise review of software development life cycles and an examination of issues related to automating and defining the software process. Plus, detailed case histories of organizations that have succeeded and failed in implementing various methodologies and CASE tools provide valuable lessons for professionals using structured methods.
