Best of Booch: Designing Strategies for Object Technology

Front Cover
Grady Booch, Edward M. Eykholt
SIGS, Dec 13, 1997 - Computers - 254 pages
No one can dispute the impact Grady Booch's writings have had on object-oriented technology. Best of Booch contains articles on various object-oriented topics published since Grady Booch's book Object Oriented Modeling and Design with Applications. Designed for software professionals who are concerned about the success of their object-oriented projects, this volume covers all aspects of the Booch method and how a complete method must address a model's notation and semantics as well as a process for creating that model. Many of the articles have been updated to reflect the current thinking in the Unified Modeling Language (UML).
