This book covers the essential knowledge and skills needed by a student who is specializing in software engineering. Readers will learn principles of object orientation, software development, software modelling, software design, requirements analysis and testing. The use of the Unified Modelling Language to develop software is taught in depth. Many concepts are illustrated using complete examples, with code written in Java. The most essential and practical software engineering knowledge is covered in reasonable depth, but the book is short and simple enough to be absorbed by a second-year student in one academic term. The focus is on knowledge and skills that industry most needs students to learn: object orientation, UML, Java, software architecture, user-interface design and quality assurance. The book teaches ways of thinking that have been shown to result in better software development: iterative development, risk management, careful evaluation of alternatives and effective communication.
