9780136197195: UML and C++: A Practical Guide to Object-Oriented Development

If you are interested in learning object-oriented technology using UML (Unified Modeling Language) and C++, then this guide from two leading software developers at Bell Laboratories of Lucent Technologies and AT&T is for you. Designed as a self-teaching guide for busy software analysts and developers who work on large systems, this book will teach you how to actually do object-oriented modeling using UML notation and implementing the model using C++. Features: Uses the new UML notation for documentation. UML will be the new industry standard; teaches the professional to make and trade off decisions to meet business needs; explains the differences among object-oriented analysis, object-oriented design, and object-oriented programming; provides a strategy for employing all the steps of object-oriented technology; fully worked case study that takes the reader through the entire development process; every concept is introduced with an example.

Review:

Written by two researchers at Lucent Technologies' prestigious Bell Labs, UML and C++: A Practical Guide to Object-Oriented Development is a thorough guide to object-oriented design using C++. This text uses the Unified Modeling Language (UML) for all diagrams (though an overview of UML isn't included).

The book begins with a critique of today's software (which is expensive and often delivered behind schedule). The authors tour the history of software engineering, from early structured analysis to object-oriented techniques. Several sections of this book cover the ins and outs of defining objects, including identifying each object's responsibilities, static, and dynamic behavior (where the UML statechart, collaboration, and use case diagrams are used to document its behavior and iterations.)

Interestingly, the authors introduce the notion of "rules"--code executed with events--used with C++. (One of the authors has even developed a language enhanced with rules for C++ called R++.) The remainder of the book looks at how to design and implement objects, specifically in C++. The case study is a Breakout type of video game. Though not especially concerned with the details of UML, there's some considerable C++ expertise on display in this intelligently written title. --Richard Dragan

From the Publisher:

Written by software developers at Lucent Technologies, this book is for software analysts and developers who work on large systems that need to learn object-oriented technology with C++. The authors provide an understanding of the differences among object-oriented analysis, object-oriented design, and object-oriented programming and teach you to build an object-oriented application using C++.
