Description

Developers working on Microsoft technologies have been slower to adopt tried and true best practices from other platforms (e.g. object-oriented methodologies, full lifecycle approaches, etc.). The coming of the .NET platform has given cause for Microsoft-oriented developers to rethink their traditional philosophy. In this new book, Enricos Manassis takes the reader through a case study for specifying, analysing, designing, implementing, and testing a sample software system on the .NET platform. In so doing, the book presents the reader with an integrated vision of three dimensions in software development: process, techniques, and technology. The book contains a running case study that will help the practitioner examine the making of software from all angles, and the reader will emerge with a deeper understanding of how better software can be built.

Back cover copy

"This book is unique in the way that is demonstrates a full life-cycle approach from business modeling to analysis, security, and testing. It does so by using existing tools such as Visual Studio .NET integrated with Rational's XDE. With a practical UML approach, this book can be used as a day-to-day field guide with code samples, document templates, and checklists. It is a complete reference for the professional .NET approach to projects." --Thierry Janssens, Technical Manager, Microsoft Development Group



"This book provides, all under one cover, a good illustration of the use of object technology, UML, and the Rational Unified Process." --Philippe Kruchten, IBM Software Group, Rational Software



Most would shudder to think if cities or automobiles were built in the same ad hoc fashion as most software. Still, Microsoft technologists often regard software development as more of a craft than a rigorous process. Given the mission-critical nature of today's software solutions, however, such an approach is vital to ensuring that high-quality projects are delivered on time and within budget.



It is possible to create software in a controlled manner without sacrificing productivity or flexibility, says Enricos Manassis. All it takes is a solid grasp of process, methods, and technology. While many books plumb these topics individually, Practical Software Engineering is unique in that it focuses on the intersection of all three.



Each chapter explores development issues from the standpoint of: The Rational Unified Process (RUP) Object Oriented Analysis and Design (OOAD) The Microsoft .NET platform



Through end-to-end coverage of a working application, the book's tutorial shows practitioners how to tap the .NET platform--as others have harnessed the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE)--to develop complex enterprise solutions. The companion Web site (www.BooksREasy.com) offers a demo version of the sample application. It also provides complete source code for Visual Studio.NET and the UML model for Rational XDE, so readers can adapt and extend the sample application.



Microsoft technologists have long perceived rigorous approaches to be complex, intimidating, and ineffective. By demystifying processes and methods, Practical Software Engineering offers a roadmap to applying an engineered approach to real-world .NET projects. In doing so, it provides readers with a firm understanding of how to translate business issues into technological solutions.
