The UML is an industry standard specification for modeling, visualizing, and documenting software projects. You can think of UML as the equivalent of blueprints in a manufacturing metaphor. By applying UML, developers can decrease the high-probability of failure that plagues large application development projects while improving quality. Extending the construction metaphor, the growing concept of executable UML is analogous to computer-aided-manufacturing settings where the blueprint for a product actually drives the machines Special Feature Up-to-date coverage including both the 1.4 and 2.0 UML specifications. Focuses on "executable UML" meaning the UML diagrams are the code, rather than viewing the diagrams as a necessary evil to complete before coding Covers testing of UML diagrams, rather than leaving all testing until the application is coded About the Author Tom Pender has been working in software development for over 22 years. Most recently he has author six courses on the UML which he has taught throughout the U.S. and 12 other countries. He has also spent the last four years teaching and consulting with companies who are transitioning to object-oriented technologies. Prior to that, his software development roles included everything from programmer to manager, teacher, writer, business systems analyst, and consultant. His work has spanned wholesale and retail distribution, investing, insurance, accounting, international shipping, embedded phone applications, materials management, and coal mining.
