If yes, give example, if no, give reason. Create a class hierarchy to organize the following drink classes: Mineral water, wine, alcoholic, nonalcoholic, grape juice, soda, bears. Draw the use-case diagram for Hotel Information System. There are two types of customers: Tour-group customers and Individual customers. Both can book, cancel, check-in and check-out of a room by Phone or via the Internet. There are booking process clerk and reception staff who manages it. A customer can pay his bill by credit card or pay utility bill.
What are the phases stages of it? Constrast with landing a job at a company that has its act together with a mature development environment, effective practices and structure, etc. People are indoctrinated into "the way" i. You grow in a guided path along what has worked here, and would probably be useful elsewhere as well. Larman's book helps you move from the former to the latter, as if you'd worked for LarmanCo.
However I wanted to add a review to encourage people in ux design to read it. It is complex. However it's an entry into understanding how software developers will work with you. Also as a system for defining software models and requirements it is an excellent system. And learning Object-oriented design is fun. It's nicely analytical, and will even help you understand programming. I was rereading some sections this morning for a projec I must admit I am reviewing a book I read in graduate school.
I was rereading some sections this morning for a project; and it will be a life saver. These are topics to which entire books were dedicated. If you are new to object oriented programming or software development in general this book is a great starting point. An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design and the Unified Process Author: Craig Larman Summary: Face it, most object-oriented designers don't really get a chance to do a full object-oriented analysis and design cycle.
This may be due to a lack of training, time, budget or the complexity of the process itself. Against this backdrop, Craig Larman's book is, quite simply, a landmark event in the object-oriented training world.
Bringing years of experience training students in object-oriented methodologies, Larman describes, step by step and building on a single, coherent project as an example, a sensible process for object-oriented analysis and design built around the UML.
Besides being an excellent tutorial for learning the UML, this book also describes the GRASP design patterns, which explain how to assign responsibilities to classes.
The author's language is precise enough that if you find a mistake, send him a note to help improve the book further. Many clear UML diagrams are used to show a logical progression in the analysis and design process.
Difficulty: Intermediate-Advanced Quotes: " They want to become effective rapidly. With limited time to learn a new technology - one that forces programmers to make a major paradigm shift in their way of developing software - prospective readers are going for the big win.
We believe that Applying UML and Patterns succeeds as the candidate for this 'single, best book' because it provides: A good, solid introduction to the full UML notation. An excellent explanation of the object-oriented development process.
An introduction to object-oriented software patterns. A single, coherent example application, methodically developed to show the application of the UML notation, object-oriented development process, and software patterns.
In addition, the book is concisely written. This stands in contrast to many books on the subject which can lose their readers quickly, either because they are long-winded or wander from the point. Teaching Larman's book is also ideally suited as the basis for teaching a course on UML and object-oriented analysis and design.
Objects by Design has a very successful college course built largely around this text. In fact, we have proposed to the author that he promote his methodology in a number of different ways, with a view toward ultimately establishing a curriculum for certification. After all, there are certifications for competency in many computer disciplines; why shouldn't object technologists be subjected to the same standards?
The major, understated achievement of Larman's book is its successful exposition of an object-oriented development process. This achievement is understated probably because the process doesn't even have a name to call it by. Maybe the author didn't want to take credit for practices which have been informally established in the industry for a while.
In the author's own words, "This book presents a sample development process which describes a possible order of activities and a development life-cycle. It does not, however, prescribe a definitive process or method; it provides a sample of common steps. We believe that object technology as it stands today has under emphasized the key role played by process in the development life-cycle. The UML notation, without a process, is just too confusing for most developers.
If there is a candidate to fill this role, by all means let's recognize it. To this end, we took a crack at a summary of Larman's process. The Dice Game The best way to jump start a description of a complex process is to provide a capsulized example at the outset. Larman's dice game example is cute because, while it is a pretty miniature application, it successfully shows the basic process: use case, conceptual model, collaboration diagram, and class diagram.
Students, being a generally impatient and skeptical breed, need to be convinced that object-oriented analysis and design is worth the effort. After all, it is much easier to 'hack' together a piece of software especially a game! For the Objects by Design course, we found that spending the time right away to challenge students' assumptions about how to develop software can quickly provide a download-in attitude.
The dice game is ideal in this respect.
Use Cases The analysis process commences with the use case. Two features in particular distinguish the author's presentation of use cases: his distinction between high-level and expanded use cases and his use of textual templates for describing use cases. The UML includes a basic use case notation for depicting actors interacting with the system.
However, the notation does not specify the format in which the narration of the use case should be captured, nor how it should be used. This is where the author steps in.
High-level use cases include the use case name, list of actors, and a basic summary of the actors' interaction with the system being modeled.
