Object Development Methods addresses how object orientation can be applied to systems analysis and design. An international roster of contributors compare the leading methodologies of Shaller/Mellor, Jacobson, Colbert, Rumbaugh, Graham, Booch, Texel, and Coad/Yourdon among others. The book provides significant insight into the contrasting viewpoints and advantages, common concepts and underlying structures of different object-oriented methods. Practitioners and academics alike will find material here to inform, inspire, encourage, warn, and guide in the improvement and maturation of the software development process. If you are a Systems Analyst/Designer, Programmer, Project Manager, Software Engineer, IT Manager, or Chief Scientist, this book is a must-read to become more familiar with and choose from the top methodologies.
