Instant UML is a handy introduction to the Unified Modeling Language (UML) as well as the fundamentals of software engineering. Though necessarily schematic at points, this handy guide is perfect for those readers with a little design experience under their belts who want to get a handle on UML quickly.

The book first tours the evolution of software engineering with the emergence of the UML standard over the last few years, describing how formerly there were a variety of competing software methodologies until UML became the standard backed by the Object Management Group (OMG) and most big vendors. Alongside this material, the author argues for the necessity of software engineering.

A tour of basic object-oriented concepts follows--from classes and inheritance to collaboration and polymorphism--with UML diagrams to illustrate each concept. Next, the book gives a short and sweet explanation of UML notation, such as class, use case, sequence, collaboration, statechart, and deployment diagrams. (Useful appendices even contain the implementation of UML in several programming languages, including C++ and Java.)

The book proceeds to project lifecycles, comparing the older waterfall approach to software development with today's iterative approach. Instant UML closes with a case study of an access-control system for small building, in which all the relevant UML diagrams are provided. (This sample project is especially good at showing use case diagrams--the "actors" here are the security guards and entrants to the hypothetical building.) In all, this title gives a quick tour in a comprehensible fashion. First published in French, the English translation is perfectly readable and not overladen with jargon. --Richard Dragan

Synopsis

This text offers not only a complete description of the notation and proper use of UML, but also an introduction to the theory of object-oriented programming, and the way to approach object-oriented application development. This is UML in context, not a list of the syntax without rhyme or reason. The book is aimed at programmers of C++, VB, Java and other OO-capable languages and written by a leading authority on UML. It contains hundreds of diagrams illustrating UML in practice and is part of the move by PC developers to professional techniques. It consolidates the learning with a practical UML example.

Instant UML is concise and to the point. I'm sick of texts which blather about simplistic issues for the developer-wanna-be$ and never get to the good stuff. (Especially when this injustice is in the supposed name of "pragmatism," but it's really just dumbed-down for the masses.)
The book is very practical and helpful for solving the real-world problem of formalizing OO design for your clients. If you're working on OO projects, like me you have trouble collecting requirements and commuicating iterative design to your client and among your team members (especially if you're attempting RAD ;-< in VB or VC).
Instant UML's straightforward recommendations for UML and iterative design are what you're looking for. This book not only documents the syntax of UML but discusses the practical application of UML to your OO design methodology. I strongly recommend it to project leaders and project architects.
If you feel this book is too "academic" or complex, you need to stay away from real-world application development larger than a weekend project with one developer. Find another career.
If you want to test-run this book, there's at least a full chapter avaiable at the MSDN library in the partial books section.

If you're just now learning object-oriented concepts, then Instant UML will almost certainly befuddle you as the French author tries to cram too many concepts into his abstraction-filled sentences.
If you already have a very strong familiarity with OOP, but want to learn UML notation, you might find the UML treatment useful. But why bother? Just get another book that doesn't spend the first half teaching you what you already know: OOP.
In my quest to learn UML, I bought five books: 1) Instant UML, 2) UML Distilled, 3) Applying Use Cases, and 4) Building Web Applications with UML and 5) The Rational Unified Process. I've read them all.
Instant UML is, by far, the most unrewarding of the group: I spent too much time unraveling his words and not enough time grasping the new-to-me concepts of object-oriented programming.
I agree with the reviewer from Warsaw, but can't help but think that even experienced OOPers appreciate clearer sentence structure.

Well, having just read Booch's book I still highly rate 'Instant UML'. I think that the title pretty much describes the contents. Its a great text to "dip into", and answer immediate questions you have about the UML and its application. I personally like it because its concise, to the point, and is illustrated with a ton of useful examples. I guess that it is really aimed at designers who have a reasonable amount of OO analysis / design experience - as an introductory text...well I'm not too sure. I recently passed a copy of this book to a technically savvy manager who had little OO experience, but found it fairly accessible - and said that it helped him gain a useful grasp on the fundamentals.
Its pretty well written (even after been translated from its original French), the examples are good, as I've already said, and it seems sensibly organized. Four stars is pretty fair I think. Is it better than the Booch book? In my opinion, probably not - simply due to the fact that the Booch book was written by one of the designers of UML, so you get that valuable insider view - but thats for another review :)
Bottom line : I really liked Instant UML, if you have money to spend on more than one UML book, its virtues are probably well worth a personal or company purchase.

I have only read the first 2 chapters of this book but I feel I have no additional knowledge on the subject. The author seems to be a rocket scientist and his audience assumed likewise. The sentence structure is obtuse and runon, using many words to say very little that is understandable to the average human. He says things like: "Any software implementation method must take into account the organization, interrelationships, and layout of structures in order to obtain the complex macroscopic behavior of the system being created." HUH. In english please!. Call me an idiot but this book is useless to all except the Harvard computer science graduate.
Technical publications should be technical but, with a real-world, no-nonsense, all be it simplistic behavior that appeals to the rocket scientist as well as your average guy, like me. This one is not!
So unless you are into tormenting yourself with overly complex information that has very little practical value in the real world, avoid this book.

If you do not have a copy of a UML tool (such as Rational Rose or Microsoft Visual Modeler) you will be wasting your money on "Instant UML." But if you are comfortable with Grady Booch's methodologies and have an extensive background in software engineering (having read Steve McConnell's "Rapid Development" book, for instance), then you may find "Instant UML" useful as a reference. If you are a complete beginner to UML and looking to satisfy your curiosity about UML, trying to understand this book will be a maddening and futile exercise, because of the overly concise and highly technical quality of the writing. Although the jacket of the book states that you can "Learn how to document the object-oriented development process," it is clearly the case the Muller expects the reader to know a significant amount about UML before beginning. Because this book is marketed for the UML beginner, but clearly is not suitable for the beginner, this book is NOT RECOMMENDED.
