For courses in Object-Oriented Design or in Object-Oriented Programming with Java offered in Computer Science and Computer Engineering departments at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.This practical text teaches students how to actually build an object-oriented model using UML notation, and to implement the model using Java. It introduces all of the basic object-oriented fundamentals necessary to start applying and understanding the object-oriented paradigm without having to be an expert in computer science.

Back cover copy

If you're a busy professional software analyst or developer working on large systems, and you do not have the time to take a class, you can get up to speed on object-oriented (OO) technology using Unified Modeling Language and Java with this book. It is a self-teaching guide, written by two industry leaders, that helps you to understand the differences between OO analysis, OO design, and OO programming. FEATURESOffers a detailed discussion of the primary principles of object orientation from the perspective of a Java implementation.Introduces Use Cases in depth as a means of developing a specification model.Includes a broad range of analysis approaches that can be tailored to a specific organization and recommends the easiest approaches for novices.Provides detailed material on capturing dynamic behaviors with considerable material on how to design and implement it.Introduces the Java Standard Extension in sufficient detail, including programming examples, that a student can incorporate the high power classes provided with Java.Covers how relationships are implemented in Java, including aggregation and associations.
