Object-oriented Modeling and Design
Prentice Hall, 1991 - Computers - 500 pages
Notable mainly for its clear and thorough exploration of the Object Modeling Technique (OMT)--a generic way of representing objects and their relationships--this book is good as a primer and great as a knowledge booster for those already familiar with object-oriented concepts. Object-Oriented Modeling and Design teaches you how to approach problems by breaking them down into interrelated pieces, then implementing the pieces. In addition to its documentation of the Object Modeling Technique (OMT), a graphical notation for depicting object-oriented systems, Object-Oriented Modeling and Design does a first-rate job of explaining basic and advanced object-orientation concepts. The book then moves on to explain the authors' techniques for breaking down problems into components and figuring out systems of interrelated objects that can be used as designs for programs. Interestingly, the authors devote part of their book to implementing object-oriented solutions in non-object-oriented languages--mainly C, Ada, and Fortran. There's also a great discussion of implementing object-oriented designs in relational database environments. The authors conclude their book with a sort of recipe section, detailing architectures for various types of programs in OMT.
