The Universal Modeling Language (UML) is a flexible and comprehensive way to design and diagram any software development project. Building Web Applications with UML covers the Web Application Extension (WAE) for UML and includes enough background information about Web applications to ease traditional software analysts and designers into the world of the Web.
Author Jim Conallen divides the text into two logical parts: the first is dedicated to explaining the various Web application architectures out there, the second to the process of modeling such systems with UML. The first chapter concisely explains the basics of the standard elements of the Web such as HTML, HTTP, forms, frames, and session management. Subsequent chapters provide an excellent overview to server-side and client-side functionality, delving into key technologies such as Active Server Pages (ASP), Java applets, and XML.
The remainder of the book is devoted to defining the requirements, architecture, and design elements of Web applications using UML. The reader will learn about Use Cases, apply analysis, and represent Web applications with the distinctive graphical elements of UML. A sample ASP application is used to illustrate the concepts. This material may be a level of abstraction above the working coder but is excellent for project managers and system architects. --Stephen W. Plain
Topics covered: Browser/Server interactions, Web page design elements, session management, dynamic client and server languages, Web security, model design, use cases, requirement specifications, analysis, sequence diagrams, and class diagrams.

The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is the standard modeling language for software systems. Using UML to model web application design allows designers to easily integrate web applications with other systems modeled in UML. Building Web Applications with UML, Second Edition presents an extension to UML suitable for web application design. Based on the author's own experience developing UML web applications, and incorporating helpful reader feedback from the first edition, the book identifies and addresses modeling problems unique to page based web applications, and offers a clear and straightforward solution. The reader is left with a clear understanding how to deal with the unique problems of modeling the design of page-based web applications, and how to take the model directly into working code.
