Description de l'ouvrage

25 août 1999 Object Technology Series

The award-winning first edition of UML Distilled was widely praised for being a concise guide to the core parts of the UML and has proved extremely successful in helping developers identify the most important parts of the language. UML Distilled, Second Edition, maintains the concise format with significantly updated coverage of use cases and activity diagrams, and expanded coverage of collaborations. It also includes a new appendix detailing the changes between UML versions. Beginning with a summary of UML's history, development, and rationale the book moves into a discussion of how the UML can be integrated into the object-oriented development process. The primary author profiles the various modeling techniques in the UML--such as use cases, class diagrams, and interaction diagrams--and describes the notation and semantics clearly and succinctly. He also outlines useful non-UML techniques such as CRC cards and patterns.

Quatrième de couverture

Now widely adopted as the de facto industry standard and sanctioned by the Object Management Group, the Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a notation all software developers need to know and understand. However, the UML is a big language, and not all of it is equally important. The award-winning first edition of UML Distilled was widely praised for being a concise guide to the core parts of the UML and has proved extremely successful in helping developers get up and running quickly. UML Distilled, Second Edition, maintains the concise format with significantly updated coverage of use cases and activity diagrams, and expanded coverage of collaborations. It also includes a new appendix detailing the changes between UML versions.

Written for those with a basic understanding of object-oriented analysis and design, this book begins with a summary of UML's history, development, and rationale and then moves into a discussion of how the UML can be integrated into the object-oriented development process. The primary author profiles the various modeling techniques in the UML--such as use cases, class diagrams, and interaction diagrams--and describes the notation and semantics clearly and succinctly. He also outlines useful non-UML techniques such as CRC cards and patterns. These descriptions are made even more relevant with a collection of best practices based on the primary author's experience and a brief Java programming example demonstrating the implementation of a UML-based design. With this tour of the key parts of the UML, readers will be left with a firm foundation upon which to build models and develop further knowledge of the Unified Modeling Language.

Praise for the First Edition

"UML Distilled is a recipient of the prestigious 1997 Software Development Magazine Productivity Award in the Books category. Addison-Wesley congratulates authors Martin Fowler and Kendall Scott for their outstanding work."

"This book is a godsend. It is packed with solid advice presented in a concise and highly readable way. The essence of the notations is explained very well indeed but the author goes beyond this to give very clear insights into the application of UML techniques."
-- Jennifer Stapleton, Vice President Technical, British Computer Society

"UML Distilled is well written, knowledgeable about both systems development and UML, and disarmingly honest."
-- Robert L. Glass, The Software Practitioner (March 1998)

"UML Distilled proves that you can say a lot of useful things about computing in a small book."
-- Gregory V. Wilson, Dr. Dobb's Journal

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A superb job of distillation 18 janvier 2000
Par Charles Ashbacher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
If you start your study of the Unified Modeling Language(UML) by going to the definitive references by the three creators, it is quite likely that you will be intimidated. The three books, _The Unified Modeling Language User Guide_, _The Unified Modeling Language Reference Manual_ and _The Unified Software Development Process_, all written by the designers and published by Addison-Wesley, are nearly 1500 pages of rather intense material. Like a veteran horseman, Martin Fowler charges to the rescue.
In a "mere" 174 pages, he takes each of the essential main areas of the UML and presents a brief, yet surprisingly thorough description of what it is and how it is used. While targeted at the UML novice, it is necessary to have a fairly solid background in object-oriented programming in order to understand it. Since the UML is a modeling language based heavily on diagrams, they are used throughout the book and are very effective.
This book will not teach you the UML, that task is left to weightier works. However, it will provide the proper foundation so that you can learn it, a task that is just as important. I listed the first edition as one of the best books of the year in my "On Books" column that appeared in the September, 1998 issue of _Journal of Object-Oriented Programming_ . There is nothing in the second edition that will change that opinion.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excelent book, but not for OO beginners 23 février 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is probably best served as a quick tour or "best of" UML for someone already versed in OOAD concepts. It introduces each major topic, establishes clear definitions and examples, and incorporates the author's personal experiences. To this end, it is concise and effective.
However, it is not well suited for people trying to get up to speed with both OO and UML concepts, (which is my situation). I found "Fundamentals of Object-Oriented Design in UML" (Page-Jones) as a much more effective introduction OO and UML.
As I become more educated on the topic, I find myself reaching for Distilled more and more. It's great as a quick reference to clear up concepts.
I think this book is a must-have for any UML user, but should not be your first experience with OOAD.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great way to get your feet wet! 9 août 2000
Par Ardis Gabrielle Maison - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I was assigned a problem recently in a C++ Advanced course that required me to quickly obtain exposure to the UML. I used Amazon to find this book. On month later I have read four books on the UML and have two more books waiting on my office shelf! I am extremely fascinated by the UML and recommend all software engineers look into its use. I highly recommend Martin Fowler's UML Distilled for engineers who have no previous modeling exposure. It is a fast way to get your feet wet and obtain a high-level overview. After reading this book you might consider the path I forged for myself:
1) UML Distilled by Martin Fowler 2) UML Toolkit by Hans-Erik Eriksson & Magnus Penker (* includes a CD-Rom with Rational Rose 4.0 demo). A great second book! You can also obtain a free UML Modeling tool by TogetherSoft.
3) The Unified Modeling Language User Guide by Booch, RumBaugh and Jacobson. A GREAT book and definite read, however I would not recommend it as your first if you are new to modeling (as I am). I was extremely impressed by Grady Booch's writing skill. He infused me with a love for modeling. (I also intend to read his other books.) As a parent I enjoyed his comments regarding teen age daughters in addition to the fine art of dog house construction.
4) Real-Time UML: Developing Efficient Objects for Embedded Systems by Bruce Powel Douglass. A SUPERB book! I am just finishing it. I was impressed with the author's extensive real-time knowledge and appreciative of his ability to communicate it so clearly to interested readers. I found his dry sense of humor entertaining and intend to look into the Dave Barry reference. I only wish I had time to immediately sit down and read his second real-time book "Doing Hard Time". It is however waiting on my office shelf.
Thanks to all the authors sited. Good luck to you on your discovery of the UML.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A great introduction book to UML 11 octobre 1999
Par Huayong Yang (yang@intersys.com) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This review also appears in comp.object.

I must confess that I didn't know UML at all when I picked up this book. I just had this simple question in mind: What the heck is UML anyway? Now that I have finished reading it, I feel like to give the book a score of 90 out of 100 for the answer it provides.

Numbered in 180 or so pages, the book really is a feather-weight compared with its peers in the same series such as _The Unified Software Development Process_. With wide margins on both sides, texts are printed in bigger fonts than what we normally see in technical books. Adding the neatly drawn diagrams, and we have a book with tremendous visual appeal to a busy professional who, after a day's hard work with the computer, just wants to read something less intimidating and demanding than a reference manual while still catching up with the trend in technology. I am talking about myself here. In this regard, the book suits my need perfectly.

I particularly enjoy the author's sense of humor, notably in the light-hearted presentation of the brief history of UML, which is part of Chapter 1. Chapter 2, titled 'An Outline Development Process', serves as a road map to the chapters that follow. By outlining the development process in four major phases (inception, elaboration, construction and transition), the author not only brings up important components in UML such as 'use cases' and class diagram, but also offers a good deal of sound advices on software engineering based on his own experience, which I find invaluable.

One thing I am not completely satisfied with is the example used in Chapter 3 ('Use Cases'. The author makes a well-intent, but ill-planned, attempt to illustrate the concepts in use cases with a diagram of a financial trading system, which, however, is totally foreign to me. Although I can understand that people like to pick examples from their past work, I must disagree on the author's choice in this case. Another area that can be improved in the book is the diagrams, which I feel are simply thrown at my face in one piece -- mixed with annotation marks in some cases (e.g., the class diagram on p.50) -- to save the space, I assume. Novices like me would have a hard time telling the annotation marks apart from the diagram at the beginning. In addition, to make the diagrams easier to follow, complex ones such as the class diagram on p.50 might be better presented in several steps (e.g., first disassembled, then assembled together).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Introduction to UML 26 juin 2001
Par Vladimir Levin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is, in my opinion, an excellent book. It's short and sweet; it includes enough information to be useful without going off the deep end into territory of interest primarily to academics. This book emphasizes a refreshing, low-ceremony approach to software development. All the major aspects of UML are discussed: Use cases, class diagrams, sequence diagrams, collaboration diagrams, stereotypes, packages and collaborations, state diagrams... I found the concise explanation of the differences between association, aggregation and composition to be especially useful. At the end of the book the author also goes through a simple example using Java to show how to get from modelling to an actual piece of code. If you are a solid intermediate-level developer, this book is an invaluable stepping stone on the path toward mastery of object-oriented design techniques. It would probably be somewhat useful for a beginner, and would probably be rather too trivial for a sophisticated software designer.
