Appropriate for courses in OO Design, OO Database Systems, Database Management and Design, and Software Engineering.Unlike other database texts that merely describe database technology, this text shows how to use database technology to meet specific application needs. The authors provide a sound step-by-step approach to Object-Oriented Development of Database Applications. They've taken their industry-leading object method-the Object Modeling Technique (OMT) and have fine-tuned it into something that easily leads to successful systems.

Back cover copy


"Mike Blaha and Bill Premerlani have provided a sound step-by-step approach to object-oriented development of database applications. They've taken their industry-leading object method - the Object Modeling Technique (OMT) - and have fine-tuned it into something that easily leads to successful systems." --Michael Jesse Chonoles, Chief of Methodology, Lockheed Martin Advanced Concepts Center

"Our IT organization is standardizing on the OMT methodology . We feel that using this method will foster an engineering culture for software acquisition, development, and maintenance. We will also use the OMT technology for translating the models into implementation of databases. The benefits include: more flexible IT systems, improved responsiveness to business changes, higher quality software, shorter time to market, and lower costs." --Peter W. Dietz, Vice President, Technology, Johnson Controls

Written by the authors of the groundbreaking book, Object-Oriented Modeling and Design. Systematically shows you how to use object-oriented principles to design and implement database applications. Introduces many new concepts and ideas that complement the presentation of the OMT methodology. Uses the new Unified Modeling Language notation to leverage advances in programming language applications. Covers relational databases, object-oriented databases, and files. Guides readers through a pedagogical framework composed of key concepts, summaries of important ideas at the end of each chapter, glossary of major definitions at the end of each chapter, and suggested references. A case study is threaded throughout the text with the implementation available on the Web.
