DescriptionA comprehensive reference for an executable UML and the advantages of modeling This book presents the most up-to-date technology for rapidly developing information systems using the object-oriented paradigm and models, and establishes an executable profile of UML for such model-driven development. As a software developer, architect, or analyst, you'll benefit from learning how information systems can be developed more efficiently using the object-oriented paradigm and model-driven approach.
Written by an expert who is uniquely qualified in the topic, this Wrox reference offers a profile of UML that is formal and executable, instead of the relational paradigm or its incomplete coupling with object orientation. It provides a comprehensive tutorial on model-driven development and UML.
- Provides an in-depth tutorial on using model-driven development and UML for building information systems, with extensive examples
- Includes tutorials and critics of traditional IS modeling paradigms, such as the relational paradigm, entity-relationship modeling, and the widely used incomplete coupling of object orientation with relational databases
- Covers basic object-oriented concepts with UML semantics, like classes and data types, attributes, associations, generalizations, operations and methods
- Proposes new powerful concepts for rapid development of information systems including contemporary user interfaces, such as programming by demonstration and others
Model-Driven Development with Executable UML offers a thorough education in this complex topic.
