Modeling = planning, which translates into web success
am 3. März 2000
In this book, the author introduces some new notation that can be used to model the construction of web applications, and given the topics of recent journal articles, it is somewhat overdue. I have read some articles recently where the topic is the planning of a company web site. The consensus is that one should plan for several months before the official launch. Translated into real terms, this amount of planning can be summed up in a single phrase, "model it."
The real significance of this book is the introduction of the concept of modeling with regard to web applications and that is what makes it valuable. Without the appropriate terms, it is not possible to properly describe a course of action, and the author introduces the necessary terms. The core of the book details the steps in a typical project:
1) The Process
2) Defining the Architecture
3) Requirements and Use Cases
applied to the goal of designing, building and maintaining a substantial web presence. With the emphasis on the modeling, very little in the way of HTML and scripting skills are needed and very little code is presented.
If you are in the process of planning a web application, either a replacement or a new one, then it is worth your while to examine this book. For many businesses, a quality web presence is now an absolute necessity for survival. This book will help you achieve that.
