9780133051377: Case Studies in Object-oriented Analysis and Design (Yourdon Press Computing Series)

Although there are numerous books on object-oriented programming, few go beyond a presentation of terminology, notation and the structure of a unique model. Written by a co-developer of one of the most popular OOA/OOD methods, this exceptionally practical and authoritative casebook shows how object-oriented analysis and design are actually practiced in developing real systems—i.e., shows the insight (rather than the technique) that was applied at each step in a solution—false starts and all. Presents two very realistic case studies—one with a predominant reactive view and one with a predominant data view—and shows how the principles of object-oriented analysis and design are applied to them.

The analysis and design of large, complex software systems are not unlike mathematical proofs; they are presented as finished products. They may be documented with reams of paper or presented as finished models. Rarely, however, do software analysts or designers document the anatomy of their analysis or design. Case Studies in Object-Oriented Analysis and Design offers insight into how object-oriented analysis and design are done—for real systems. It goes beyond presenting terminology, notation, and model structure and offers insight on analysis, design, and project management issues. Case Studies in Object-Oriented Analysis and Design provides the bridge between the introduction to OOA/OOD and a complex real-world application of the theory. Its topics include:

  • How to Find the Right Object
  • Building the Analysis Model
  • Documenting, Reviewing, and Revising the Analysis Model
  • Transitioning into Design
  • Building the Design Model
  • Implementation Issues
  • Transitioning to Object-Orientation

A hands-on, how-to book written for the practitioner, Case Studies in Object-Oriented Analysis and Design presents two realistic, in-depth case studies developed from user problem statement through object-oriented analysis, design, and into implementation. Techniques are applicable to virtually every version of object-oriented analysis and design. Included with the book is a case study diskette containing the case study models together with their implementations. A practical, down-to-earth introduction to object technology, this book can also be used as a template for your own object-oriented project.
