Applying UML and Patterns Summary

Applying UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design and the Unified Process by Craig Larman

For all undergraduate courses in object-oriented analysis and design. Builds on the overwhelming success of the First Edition. The topics covered in this book are increasingly recognized as core competencies by virtually all contemporary computer science departments, and in virtually all computer science curricula.

This book teaches object-oriented analysis and design through iterations of a single, cohesive case study-incrementally introducing key OO&AD skills while emphasizing practical activities and principles. Renowned object technology leader Craig Larman introduces the popular UML 1.4 diagramming notation as a superior vehicle for expressing OO&AD thoughts. Since OOA&D should be taught (and practiced) within a coherent process, he presents a lightweight, agile version of the market-leading Unified Process (UP). Within his case study's context, he also introduces patterns-robust, best-practice solutions to the most widely encountered design problems.
