This revision offers a crisp, clear explanation of the basics of object-oriented thinking via UML models, then presents a process for applying these principles to software development, including C++, Java, and relational databases. An integrated case study threads throughout the book, illustrating key ideas as well as their application. 


• Extensive exercises with solutions - Provide students with numerous opportunities for reinforcement of concepts.

• Instructor's on-line solutions manual - Features over 200 pages of answers to the many exercises in the text.

• Respected, experienced authors - Dr. Michael Blaha and Dr. James Rumbaugh are inventors of the Object Modeling Technique (OMT), one of the most widely used design methods and the basis for UML.

New to this Edition

• Compliant with Unified Modeling Language 2 - Includes new use cases, activity models, and sequence diagrams, all UML2-compliant.


• Substantially updated content - Provides students with training in the latest theories and techniques, while emulating the accessible style of the successful first edition.

• More robust process - Adds iterative development, implementation modeling, and reverse engineering to give students a strong foundation in practicality and problem solving.

In a sense, Jim Rumbaugh and Mike Blaha are two of the "founding fathers" of UML. They invented UML, the basis for UML, along with Booch notation. Their first edition was crucial to the development and adoption of Object-Oriented methods when they were in their infancy. Blaha is a worldwide consultant and is a partner with Modelsoft Consulting, and SentientPoint Corporation. He is active in the IEEE Computer Society. Rumbaugh is a Distinguished Engineer with the Rational brand of IBM and is one of the original co-designers of UML. He is a highly influential author.
