"Jos Warmer's work has contributed greatly to the semantics of the UML. From that perspective, and in this book, he offers insight on how one can and can't use the UML to move to the next level of abstraction in building systems." -Grady Booch Experienced application developers often invest more time in building models than they do in actually writing code. Why? Well-constructed models make it easier to deliver large, complex enterprise systems on time and within budget. Now, a new framework advanced by the Object Management Group (OMG) allows developers to build systems according to their core business logic and data-independently of any particular hardware, operating system, or middleware. Model Driven Architecture (MDA) is a framework based on the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and other industry standards for visualizing, storing, and exchanging software designs and models. However, unlike UML, MDA promotes the creation of machine-readable, highly abstract models that are developed independently of the implementation technology and stored in standardized repositories.There, they can be accessed repeatedly and automatically transformed by tools into schemas, code skeletons, test harnesses, integration code, and deployment scripts for various platforms. Written by three members of OMG's MDA standardization committee, MDA Explained gives readers an inside look at the advantages of MDA and how they can be realized. This book begins with practical examples that illustrate the application of different types of models. It then shifts to a discussion at the meta-level, where developers will gain the knowledge necessary to define MDA tools.Highlights of this book include: *The MDA framework, including the Platform Independent Model (PIM) and Platform Specific Model (PSM)*OMG standards and the use of UML *MDA and Agile, Extreme Programming, and Rational Unified Process (RUP) development *How to apply MDA, including PIM-to-PSM and PSM-to-code transformations for Relational, Enterprise JavaBean (EJB), and Web models*Transformations, including controlling and tuning, traceability, incremental consistency, and their implications*Metamodeling*Relationships between different standards, including Meta Object Facility (MOF), UML, and Object Constraint Language (OCL) The advent of MDA offers concrete ways to improve productivity, portability, interoperability, maintenance, and documentation dramatically. With this groundbreaking book, IT professionals can learn to tap this new framework to deliver enterprise systems most efficiently. 032119442XB03242003
A New Perspective on Object-Oriented Design
"One of the great things about the book is the way the authors explain concepts very simply using analogies rather than programming examplesthis has been very inspiring for a product I'm working on: an audio-only introduction to OOP and software development." Bruce Eckel "...I would expect that readers with a basic understanding of object-oriented programming and design would find this book useful, before approaching design patterns completely. Design Patterns Explained complements the existing design patterns texts and may perform a very useful role, fitting between introductory texts such as UML Distilled and the more advanced patterns...
'In this second edition of Extreme Programming Explained, Kent Beck organizes and presents five years' worth of experiences, growth, and change revolving around XP. If you are seriously interested in understanding how you and your team can start down the path of improvement with XP, you must read this book. Francesco Cirillo, Chief Executive Officer, XPLabs S.R.L. 'The first edition of this book told us what XP wasit changed the way many of us think about software development. This second edition takes it farther and gives us a lot more of the why' of XP, the motivations and the principles behind the practices. This is great stuff. Armed with the what...
The new concept of Extreme Programming (XP) is gaining more and more acceptance, partially because it is controversial, but primarily because it is particularly well-suited to help the small software development team succeed. This book serves as the introduction to XP that the market will need. XP is controversial, many software development sacred cows don't make the cut in XP; it forces practitioners to take a fresh look at how software is developed. The author recognizes that this "lightweight" methodology is not for everyone. However, anyone interested in discovering what this new concept can offer them will want to start with this book....
