Kurzbeschreibung

August 1998 Addison-Wesley Object Technology
Many projects struggle to define the specific functions of software, and end users often find that the final product does not perform as expected. Use cases allow analysts to identify the required features of a software system based on how each end user will use the system. This efficient and straightforward analysis process gives end users direct input into the design of the system that will serve them. Applying Use Cases provides a practical and clear introduction to developing use cases, demonstrating their use via a continuing case study. Using the Unified Software Development Process as a framework and the Unified Modeling Language (UML) as a notation, the authors step the reader through applying use cases in the different phases of the process, focusing on where and how use cases are best applied.Other highlights include: *A collection of realistic examples showing how to apply use cases, drawn from the authors' extensive experience in this area *A case study that offers insight into the common mistakes and pitfalls that can plague an object-oriented project *An illustration of the latest version of the UML notation for diagramming use cases *A practical "how-to" discussion on applying use cases to identify system requirements 0201309815B04062001

Amazon.de

With the emergence of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) over the last few years, developers new to the advantages of thorough software-engineering practices now have a better notational system for designing more effective software. To use UML effectively, you will want to create use cases, which help describe the requirements of a system. In their concise and very readable book, the authors of Applying Use Cases show how use cases can benefit all aspects of the software-design process and let you create better software in less time.

This guide provides a case study for a mail-order business (with some e-commerce as well) as its central example. Use cases define how actors (i.e., users) are defined for all the various components of a mail-order business, including inventory, accounting, and order fulfillment. The authors suggest that while use cases are particularly useful at the beginning of a project cycle--for assessing risks and setting project timetables, for instance--they are also useful for testing and deployment of systems (specifically, for creating documentation and help manuals). The sample use cases--and supporting design documents--are what's best in this text. --Richard Dragan

Synopsis

Many projects struggle to define the specific functions of software, and end users often find that the final product does not perform as expected. Use cases allow analysts to identify the required features of a software system based on how each end user will use the system. This efficient and straightforward analysis process gives end users direct input into the design of the system that will serve them. Applying Use Cases provides a practical and clear introduction to developing use cases, demonstrating their use via a continuing case study. Using the Unified Software Development Process as a framework and the Unified Modeling Language (UML) as a notation, the authors step the reader through applying use cases in the different phases of the process, focusing on where and how use cases are best applied.Other highlights include: *A collection of realistic examples showing how to apply use cases, drawn from the authors' extensive experience in this area *A case study that offers insight into the common mistakes and pitfalls that can plague an object-oriented project *An illustration of the latest version of the UML notation for diagramming use cases *A practical "how-to" discussion on applying use cases to identify system requirements 0201309815B04062001

1.0 von 5 Sternen Is it a practical guide? 28. Februar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
If you assume that a use case scenario should contain a detailed written description of a user behavior then, perhaps, the book is for you. In my mind it is impractical and most of the time impossible. I disagree with an idea that primary scenario of an event should contain such a detailed description: "1. The use case starts when the customer selects Place Order. 2. The customer enters his or her name and address..... 7. Customer will select Submit... 9. When payment is confirmed, the order is marked as confirmed. an order Id is returned to the customer. and the use case ends."

4.0 von 5 Sternen Recommended for introducing the concept of use cases 14. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Excellent short book with examples following the text. I would recommend the book for anyone needing an introduction to the usage of use case in software development. The only complaint is that the book is too short. With its small size, the areas that the authors declared as outside the scope of the book, could have been at least been discussed briefly. Also, there are several modeling tools now available that allow developers to create use cases and business rules and automatically generate object models. These also are not mentioned.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Learing abstraction by example 18. Januar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
For every abstraction used in the development of software, there is a definition and a set of rules concerning how to use it. Unfortunately, being an abstraction, the definition is often open to interpretation and the rules are nebulous guidelines. The concept of use cases is one such abstraction. Therefore, the best way to explain them is to use them in an understandable context. That is the approach taken in this book.
The scenario is that a group of designers want to build a "simple" online ordering system. They begin with the proverbial conversation over coffee which contained the usual, "that system stinks and we could do better" phrase. From there, a general, but fairly complete process is presented. Every step in the sequence of requirements definitions is given. Many potential use cases are put forward, which is excellent, as this allows the authors to demonstrate the culling process, whereby some use cases are eliminated and others are combined.
The presentation is a combination of simulated dialog between the principals and more formal techniques of requirements capture such as actors and their diagrams. One thing that impressed me was the accuracy of the dialog. Anyone who has participated in the requirements capture process will experience a flashback. It is written with the beginner in mind, as very little programming background is needed to understand it. This is a thorough demonstration of how to create and apply use cases, without the depth that requires more formal notational techniques.
Use cases are sometimes very hard to teach, as is the case with most abstractions. In this book, the abstract is made concrete and if you read it you will learn a lot about use cases. However, you still may not be able to offer a precise definition.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a great book and fun to read 8. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This book will give you a great foundation for applying use cases and does so in a format that is to the point and user friendly. The book is only about 180 pages and does well with this amount of space. It doesn't attempt any great tangents of though or reason bit stays focussed on use cases and the relevant material that is associated with the subject. Two points that could be strengthened in the book are: 1) the level of abstraction that you are applying to the use case at a particular time and how this may evolve over time, 2) there could be a little more structure provided for traceability throughout the project lifecycle. Both points are mentioned but the authors never really provide a structured mechanism to handle these issues, which would be a complex requirement for all but he simplest projects. I thought the ongoing fictional case study approach was a great idea. It allowed the reader to catch their breath along the way and also provides for some contextual insight that can be missed in a strictly academic format. Although not directly related to this title, "Designing Object-Oriented Software" by Wirfs-Brock, et. al. is also right on the nose with using a responsibility driven approach and CRC cards. It's a good read by itself but especially in combination with Applying Use Cases.

3.0 von 5 Sternen There's a good, more practical alternative 5. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
" Applying Use Cases : A Practical Guide" is not bad, but when I browsed through several Use Case books at a local book store, I decided to buy "Use Cases: Requirements in Context", which - to me - seems to be a far more practical book than this one.
Check out "Use Cases: Requirements in Context" before you buy any book on this topic.

Format:Taschenbuch
As another reviewer pointed out, the campy dialog that this book relies on to help guide you through the process of developing use cases sometimes hinders the cause more than it helps. Luckily, you can either skim or ignore it altogether and still garner valuable insight into the process of using use cases. This book has served as my read-along guide for a current project and I have found the chapter outlining the final use case documentation for the books' fictional project to be a great aid. I wish there were more books on this topic, especially some with 'real-life' use cases that led to successful projects, but this book is a very good place to start.
