Java Modeling In Color With UML : Enterprise Components and Process
This is the first book to teach software design in color. Peter Coad and his co-authors use four colors to represent four "archetypes": forms that appear repeatedly in effective component and object models. Given a color, you'll know the kind of attributes, links, methods, and interactions that class is likely to have. Using these color "building blocks," you can build better models for any business. Coad's team plugs these archetypes into a 12-class domain-neutral component that reflects his unparalleled modeling experience. The book delivers 47 ready-to-use, domain-specific components, each designed to help you build better models and apps. Finally, the authors introduce Feature-Driven Development, a new process for getting the most out of Java modeling and development. It's like having Peter Coad at your side, guiding you towards more effective design!
