Modeling languages have been used by system developers for decades to specify, visualize, construct, and document systems; rough sketches using stick figures and arrows and scribbled routing conditions go back still further. But the Unified Modeling Language (UML), for the first time in the history of systems engineering, gives practitioners a common language that applies to a multitude of different systems, domains, and methods or processes. It does not guarantee project success, but enables you to communicate solutions in a consistent, standardized, and tool-supported language. All indications suggest that the industry is rushing to the UML. Created by leading software engineering experts Grady Booch, James Rumbaugh, and Ivar Jacobson (now of Rational Software Corporation), and accepted as a standard by the Object Management Group (OMG) in 1997, the language has already achieved more success than any previous contenders. With a firm conceptual and pragmatic basis, it is well suited to supporting projects in modern languages like C++ and Java. And standardization lays the groundwork for tools as well as standard methods or processes.This book presents the UML, including its extension mechanisms and the Object Constraint Language (OCL), in a clear reference format. For those new to the language, a tutorial quickly brings you to the point where you can use the UML. The book is concise and precise, breaking down the information along clean lines and explaining each element of the language. Introductory chapters also convey the purpose of the UML and show its value to projects and as a means for communication. Topics include: The role of the UML in projects The object-oriented paradigm and its relation to the UML Tutorial with realistic examples An integrated approach to UML diagrams Class and Object, Use Case, Sequence, Collaboration, Statechart, Activity, Component, and Deployment Diagrams Extension Mechanisms The Object Constraint Language (OCL)
Apologies, but not abject ones :-)
I am disappointed that so many people have disliked this book so intensely.
I was not the development editor for the book, but I was the one who signed the book for publication. I did so because I'd been trying to read UML Distilled, and when Sinan's proposal came in, with his bullet-list format, I found it a much quicker way to absorb the buzzword barrage that is the price of entry to UML.
Obviously, other people didn't feel the same way (although I'll note that along with a bunch of terrible reviews, there are a number of very complimentary reviews from people who have had some UML experience, so we didn't completely miss the mark.)
However, if the book doesn't work for many of the people who buy it, it doesn't work! In this case at least, the customer is always right. However, I do want to dispute the idea that the book was just slapped together. It was under development for the better part of a year, and a good chunk of it was written before we even signed a contract for the book. So if the book was a mistake, at least it wasn't a hasty one! :-)
I also want to say that Andy Oram, the developmental editor, had some serious hesitations about the bullet-list format, but I urged him to go ahead with it. I thought it was an interesting experiment in how to come up with an "In a Nutshell" compact reference for such an abstract topic.
As those of you who are In a Nutshell fans know, we've extended the series from books on command-line interfaces (UNIX in a Nutshell, Linux in a Nutshell) and programming languages (Java in a Nutshell, Perl in a Nutshell) to all kinds of other topics.
It hasn't always been easy to map the concept (concentrated reference) onto material that isn't necessarily reference oriented. As you'll see, I tried one of the more difficult topics myself with Windows 95 in a Nutshell and the soon-to-be released Windows 98 in a Nutshell. These books adapt the format to a GUI-based system. I think they are really good books, but people from the Windows world, who find the under-the-hood mindset foreign, may find them a little difficult.
In a similar way, I wonder if some of the issues with this book aren't issues with UML. It's definitely a different way of thinking about software development.
That being said, we clearly haven't established a reference point or a style that makes sense for many readers. We'll have to go back to the drawing board.
Thanks for giving the book a try, and thanks for letting us know that it didn't work for you and why.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

This book is aptly named. Like most nutshells, it is all but indigestible. A much better overview of UML is Martin Fowler's "UML Distilled".Veröffentlicht am 1. April 2000 von W. Meyer
