Object-oriented modelling and design promote better understanding of requirements, cleaner designs and more maintainable systems. Often, books on related subjects rely on programming and coding, forcing readers to think in terms of the computer, and not the application. "Object-oriented Modeling and Design" emphasizes that object-oriented technology is more that just a way of programming. It applies techniques to the entire software development cycle. This volume presents a new object-oriented software development methodology - from analysis, through design, to implementation. Key features of the book include a focus on high-level, front-end conceptual processes of analysis and design, rather than just on the low-level, back-end implementation steps of programming; coverage of the entire development life cycle - analysis, design, implementation without a change of notation at each stage; a presentation of graphical notation and methodology independent of any particular programming language; case studies of industrial object-oriented applications developed by the authors; and examples and exercises that bring out fine points, summary lists of concepts and methodology steps, and almost 300 diagrams.

Notable mainly for its clear and thorough exploration of the Object Modeling Technique (OMT)--a generic way of representing objects and their relationships--this book is good as a primer and great as a knowledge booster for those already familiar with object-oriented concepts. Object-Oriented Modeling and Design teaches you how to approach problems by breaking them down into interrelated pieces, then implementing the pieces. In addition to its documentation of the Object Modeling Technique (OMT), a graphical notation for depicting object-oriented systems, Object-Oriented Modeling and Design does a first-rate job of explaining basic and advanced object-orientation concepts. The book then moves on to explain the authors' techniques for breaking down problems into components and figuring out systems of interrelated objects that can be used as designs for programs. Interestingly, the authors devote part of their book to implementing object-oriented solutions in non-object-oriented languages--mainly C, Ada, and Fortran. There's also a great discussion of implementing object-oriented designs in relational database environments. The authors conclude their book with a sort of recipe section, detailing architectures for various types of programs in OMT.From the Publisher:
This text applies object-oriented techniques to the entire software development cycle.
