Case Studies in Object-oriented Analysis and Design

Front Cover
Prentice Hall, 1996 - Computers - 346 pages
Written by a co-developer of one of the most popular OOA/OOD methods, this case book shows how object-oriented analysis and design are actually practised in developing real systems - false starts and all. It presents two case studies - one with a predominant reactive view and one with a predominant data view - and shows how the principles of object-oriented analysis and design are applied to them. The book uses the Coad/Yourdon OOA/OOD method to develop an analysis and a design model, and devotes separate chapters to each of the OOA layers of the Coad/Yourdon approach (subject layer, class/object layer, structure layer, attribute layer, service layer), as well as the various components (problem-domain components, human-interaction component, task-management components, and data management component).
