Applying UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design
by Craig Larman
Publisher: Prentice Hall 2004
Number of pages: 616
This book is a lucid and practical introduction to thinking and designing with objects—and creating systems that are well crafted, robust, and maintainable. Developers and students will learn object-oriented analysis and design (OOA/D) through three iterations of two cohesive, start-to-finish case studies. These case studies incrementally introduce key skills, essential OO principles and patterns, UML notation, and best practices.
