Topological UML Modeling Book Review:

Topological UML Modeling: An Improved Approach for Domain Modeling and Software Development presents a specification for Topological UML® that combines the formalism of the Topological Functioning Model (TFM) mathematical topology with a specified software analysis and design method. The analysis of problem domain and design of desired solutions within software development processes has a major impact on the achieved result – developed software. While there are many tools and different techniques to create detailed specifications of the solution, the proper analysis of problem domain functioning is ignored or covered insufficiently. The design of object-oriented software has been led for many years by the Unified Modeling Language (UML®), an approved industry standard modeling notation for visualizing, specifying, constructing, and documenting the artifacts of a software-intensive system, and this comprehensive book shines new light on the many advances in the field. Presents an approach to formally define, analyze, and verify functionality of existing processes and desired processes to track incomplete or incorrect functional requirements Describes the path from functional and nonfunctional requirements specification to software design with step-by-step creation and transformation of diagrams and models with very early capturing of security requirements for software systems. Defines all modeling constructs as extensions to UML®, thus creating a new UML® profile which can be implemented in existing UML® modeling tools and toolsets

Agile Modeling Book Review:

The first book to cover Agile Modeling, a new modeling techniquecreated specifically for XP projects eXtreme Programming (XP) hascreated a buzz in the software development community-much likeDesign Patterns did several years ago. Although XP presents amethodology for faster software development, many developers findthat XP does not allow for modeling time, which is critical toensure that a project meets its proposed requirements. They havealso found that standard modeling techniques that use the UnifiedModeling Language (UML) often do not work with this methodology. Inthis innovative book, Software Development columnist Scott Amblerpresents Agile Modeling (AM)-a technique that he created formodeling XP projects using pieces of the UML and Rational's UnifiedProcess (RUP). Ambler clearly explains AM, and shows readers how toincorporate AM, UML, and RUP into their development projects withthe help of numerous case studies integrated throughout the book. AM was created by the author for modeling XP projects-anelement lacking in the original XP design The XP community and its creator have embraced AM, which shouldgive this book strong market acceptance Companion Web site at www.agilemodeling.com features updates,links to XP and AM resources, and ongoing case studies about agilemodeling.

UML 2 Certification Guide Book Review:

The popular Unified Modeling Language (UML) is both a language and notation developed by the Object Management Group (OMG) used to design and create specifications for software systems. With the recent release of version 2.0 UML, the OMG has started the OMG-Certified UML Professional Program to provide an objective measure of UML knowledge. As a certified UML professional a developer has an important credential to present to employers and clients. Certification also benefits companies looking for skilled UML practitioners by giving them a basis for making hiring and promotion decisions. UML 2 Certification Guide is the only official study guide to passing the new UML exams. This book systematically covers all of the topics covered in the exams, and has been carefully reviewed by the OMG. The book begins by assuming only a basic knowledge of UML and then progresses far enough to allow a reader to pass both the fundamental and the intermediate level exams. Along the way the book also covers topics that are not in introductory books on UML but that are necessary to pass the exams. Tim Weilkiens is considered one of the top ten experts on UML, and both authors have extensive experience training developers to successfully take the exams. The official certification resource Assumes a basic knowledge of UML so that you can focus immediately on the exams Written by two authors known for their skill as trainers, consultants, and developers Developed systematically to enable you to master all exam topics—without exception Covers the use of UML for applications, as required by the exams, both inside and outside of the realm of software development Includes a practice exam, glossary, list of books, and website information

Advanced Systems Design with Java, UML and MDA Book Review:

The Model Driven Architecture defines an approach where the specification of the functionality of a system can be separated from its implementation on a particular technology platform. The idea being that the architecture will be able to easily be adapted for different situations, whether they be legacy systems, different languages or yet to be invented platforms. MDA is therefore, a significant evolution of the object-oriented approach to system development. Advanced System Design with Java, UML and MDA describes the factors involved in designing and constructing large systems, illustrating the design process through a series of examples, including a Scrabble player, a jukebox using web streaming, a security system, and others. The book first considers the challenges of software design, before introducing the Unified Modelling Language and Object Constraint Language. The book then moves on to discuss systems design as a whole, covering internet systems design, web services, Flash, XML, XSLT, SOAP, Servlets, Javascript and JSP. In the final section of the book, the concepts and terminology of the Model Driven Architecture are discussed. To get the most from this book, readers will need introductory knowledge of software engineering, programming in Java and basic knowledge of HTML. * Examines issues raised by the Model-Driven Architecture approach to development * Uses easy to grasp case studies to illustrate complex concepts * Focused on the internet applications and technologies that are essential for students in the online age

The Unified Modeling Language Reference Manual Book Review:

"If you are a serious user of UML, there is no other book quite like this one. I have been involved with the UML specification process for some time, but I still found myself learning things while reading through this book-especially on the changes and new capabilities that have come with UML." -Ed Seidewitz, Chief Architect, IntelliData Technologies Corporation The latest version of the Unified Modeling Language-UML 2.0-has increased its capabilities as the standard notation for modeling software-intensive systems. Like most standards documents, however, the official UML specification is difficult to read and navigate. In addition, UML 2.0 is far more complex than previous versions, making a thorough reference book more essential than ever. In this significantly updated and expanded edition of the definitive reference to the standard, James Rumbaugh, Ivar Jacobson, and Grady Booch-the UML's creators-clearly and completely describe UML concepts, including major revisions to sequence diagrams, activity models, state machines, components, internal structure of classes and components, and profiles. Whether you are capturing requirements, developing software architectures, designing implementations, or trying to understand existing systems, this is the book for you. Highlights include: Alphabetical dictionary of articles covering every UML concept Integrated summary of UML concepts by diagram type Two-color diagrams with extensive annotations in blue Thorough coverage of both semantics and notation, separated in each article for easy reference Further explanations of concepts whose meaning or purpose is obscure in the original specifications Discussion sections offering usage advice and additional insight into tricky concepts Notation summary, with references to individual articles An enhanced online index available on the book's web site allowing readers to quickly and easily search the entire text for specific topics The result is an indispensable resource for anyone who needs to understand the inner workings of the industry standard modeling language.
