Object-oriented Software Development Using Java: Principles, Patterns, and Frameworks

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley, 2000 - Computers - 507 pages
Object-oriented software development has matured significantly over the past several years. The convergence of object-oriented modeling techniques and notations, the development of object-oriented frameworks and design patterns, and the evolution of object-oriented programming languages have been essential in the progression of this technology. Object-Oriented Software Development in Java: Styles, Patterns, and Frameworks focuses on developing skills in designing software-particularly in writing well-designed, medium-sized object-oriented programs. It provides a broad and coherent coverage of object-oriented technology, including object-oriented modeling using the Unified Modeling Language (UML), object-oriented design using Design Patterns, and object-oriented programming using Java. The book uses the Java 2 platform throughout, introducing such topics as Swing, collections, and RMI. The material is presented from both a theoretical and a practical perspective, instilling the object-oriented way of thinking through the use of design patterns, exploration of the design of the Java Class Libraries, and illustration of incremental software development. 020135084XB04062001
