Description

How can software developers, programmers and managers meet the challenges of the 90s and begin to resolve the software crisis? This book is based on Objectory which is the first commercially available comprehensive object-oriented process for developing large-scale industrial systems. Ivar Jacobson developed Objectory as a result of 20 years of experience building real software-based products. The approach takes a global view of system development and focuses on minimizing the system's life cycle cost. Objectory is an extensible industrial process that provides a method for building large industrial systems. This revised printing has been completely updated to make it as accessible and complete as possible. New material includes the revised Testing chapter, in which new product developments are discussed.

Reader Review(s)

"In this book Jacobson establishes a new direction for the future of software engineering practice. It is a thorough presentation of ideas and techniques that are both solidly proven and simultaneously at the leading edge of software engineering methodology." Larry L. Constantine, RODP, Organization & System Consultant



"Object-Oriented Software Engineering belongs in the book collection of every serious student of object methodologies." Larry O'Brien, Editor, COMPUTER LANGUAGE



"Perhaps the most profound and deeply revealing volume on object technology to date ... It is simply a must-own book." Steve Bilow, Journal of Object-Oriented Programming



"Jacobson is in my opinion one of the foremost methodologists in the field of Software Engineering ... I strongly recommend ... this book ... not only for software managers and designers but for anyone who wishes to understand how the next generation of Software Systems should be built." Dave Thomas, Object Technology International
