Object Oriented Analysis and Design Using UML
A white paper that takes a look at the Unified Modeling Language notation, by
Introduction You’re proficient in C++, Java or another OO language, you’re designing class hierarchies, using inheritance, and manipulating complex pointer relationships to store the necessary links between your classes
Perhaps you’re feeling the need for a more formal notation to express your designs - using something that is language independent, and that enables you to consider the important aspects of design leaving the detail for later
Alternatively, perhaps you’re a Project Manager, looking to formalise the OO design process a little to make sure you’re getting the most from your move to C++/Java or a similar language
In this paper, I take a look at the UML (Unified Modelling Language) notation for Object Oriented Analysis and Design - the emerging standard designed by Booch, Rumbaugh and Jacobson, each of whom previously had their own notations published independently
The starting point is Object Modelling, a technique that enables you to focus on class structure, inheritance, etc., whilst avoiding language specifics such as pointer dereferencing
It is a language independent notation allowing the specification of classes, their data or attributes(private) and methods (public), inheritance, and other more general relationships between classes

The Unified Modeling Language ( UML ) is a non-proprietary, and used in
UML is a language that includes a standardized graphical notation that may be used to create an abstract model of a system, sometimes referred to as the UML model
UML may be considered as an extensible modeling language since it offers a profile mechanism to customize the language
If a concept you need is not present in the base language, you may introduce it by defining a
UML is a language
The (SysML) is a language for that is defined as a UML 2.0 profile
In 1996 the Three Amigos decided that a Unified Modeling Language was more viable than a Unified Method, and redirected their efforts to respond to the Request for Proposal (RFP) for an object modeling language ('Object Analysis & Design RFP-1', OMG document ad/96-05-01), which was issued in June 1996
Under the technical leadership of Three Amigos, an international consortium called the was organized in 1996 to complete the Unified Modeling Language (UML) specification, and propose it as a response to the OMG RFP
It is now an international standard: / 19501:2005 Information technology -- Open Distributed Processing -- Unified Modeling Language (UML) Version 1.4.2 UML has matured significantly since UML 1.1

A June 1996 article by Michael Gora comparing several major methodologies.My most common approach to OO methodology involves fairly strict adherence to OO design and construction guidelines as appropriate to a particular language, but a very loose and flexible approach to OO analysis
I spent all of 1988 and some of 1989 working with Richard Brown, one of the top OO developers in the U.S., building an OO EIS/DSS system under OS/2, using C as the language
When used in typical initial attempts to develop client/server applications using OOAD methodologies, all of the methodologies suffer from the same basic flaws: * an overemphasis on the OO approach in general, even though another approach might be better for some parts of the problem * an overemphasis on the problem domain object model during the analysis phase * analysis diagrams and output formats that end users may find difficult to understand * difficulty in the methodology's ability to describe complex analysis problems * a lack of emphasis on the underlying system architecture * an inability to understand the limitations of either 4GL OO languages or of beginning OO developers Every object methodology tells you to start with the object model, not the data model; there are at least four problems with this approach: * The data model often exists before the object model

Rendering the fundamental components of the UML and the values different views
provide, by Paul Reed.
Some think that the Unified Modeling Language (UML) fills many of these expectations
The use cases are cast in the language of the user, so they contain no 'object speak' at this point
The UMLýs framework has given CASE vendors the necessary metamodel information to generate RDBMS schemas in the form of back-end data definition language (DDL) specifications
Most CASE vendors will produce interface definition language (IDL) stubs from the class diagram
The BON analysis and design method
BON: The analysis and design method for reliability, reusabilility and reversibility.
Overview BON is based on concepts similar to those of but can be used independently of Eiffel, for example by people using another O-O language for implementation
Many people who are attracted by the power and practicality of the concepts start with BON as their first step towards modern, systematic O-O software construction, even if in the short term they must use another implementation language
ARCHITECTURE ANALYSIS AND DESIGN LANGUAGE ?
Building bug-free OO software: An introduction to Design by Contract
Advanced use of assertions for clearer specifications and greater software
reliability. By OO guru Bertrand Meyer, creator of Eiffel.
A technique for dealing with abnormal cases, leading to a safe and effective language construct for exception handling
The ideas developed below are part of [, ] which the reader is urged to view here not so much as a programming language but rather as a software development method
This has the advantage that the specification language is embedded in the design and programming language (here Eiffel), whereas formal specification languages are typically non-executable or, if they are executable, can only be used for prototypes
Here our criteria are more demanding: we want our language to be used for practical commercial development and hence to yield efficient implementation
The Eiffel language rules for assertion redefinition  support the principle of subcontracting
(See the new edition of  for the most up-to-date description.) An extended specification language , allowing the expression of a richer set of assertions
Design by Contract has already been widely applied; the theory provides a powerful thread throughout the object-oriented method, and addresses many of the issues that many people are encountering as they start applying O-O techniques and languages seriously: what kind of "methodology" to apply, on what concepts to base the analysis step, how to specify components, how to document object-oriented software, how to guide the testing process and, most importantly, how to build software so that bugs do not show up in the first place

XML is a sophisticated subset of SGML (Standard Generalized Markup Language: ISO 8879), and provides the following advantages: Application neutrality (vender independence) User extensibility Ability to represent arbitrary and complex information Validation scheme of data structure Human readability UXF facilitates: Interoperability between development tools: Software models are dynamically changed in the analysis, design, revision and maintenance phases
Pattern Markup Language (PML) PML (Pattern Markup Language) is a XML-based format to describe software patterns
(June 1998) Available format: [ | ] Abstract: As Unified Modeling Language (UML) provides most of the concepts and notations that are essential for documenting object-oriented models, it has been widely accepted in the software engineering area
This paper addresses this problem and proposes UXF (UML eXchange Format), which is an exchange format for UML models, based on XML (Extensible Markup Language)
In the software engineering community, Unified Modeling Language (UML) has been widely accepted as an object-oriented software analysis/design methodology, since it provides most of the concepts and notations that are essential for documenting object oriented models
This is not a FAQ in the usual sense. It contains very brief summaries of topics
that have been discussed on the patterns-discussion list, in question and ...
One popular format for pattern review (used at the Pattern Languages of Programs (PLOP) conferences) is the Writer's Workshop
What's the difference between a pattern language and a set of patterns? A pattern language is a set of interrelated patterns, all sharing some of the same context, and perhaps classified into categories
Alexander's use of the term ``language'' is unconventional but not wrong
People cite factors including clashes with long-established practices and with the professional culture of architects, economic factors, the fact that Alexander focuses on having people design and build their own houses, and differences in opinion about how good or useful the particular patterns in A Pattern Language are in practice

Includes architectural, static, dynamic, and client-server patterns for integrating
Smalltalk and RDBMSs.
- - - A Pattern Language for Relational Databases and Smalltalk By Kyle Brown and Bruce Whitenack Early in 1995 we (two experienced Smalltalk programmers) began a project in analysis and design that would tax our abstraction abilities to their limits
The result of this ongoing exercise is a pattern language we call Crossing Chasms
What motivated us to write a pattern language? The business of companies like Knowledge Systems Corporation (KSC) and The Object People is to transfer information about the process of building object systems from consultants to clients
It was this desire to record our lessons learned, to be better equipped for future projects, and to find unity among the disparate vendor implementations, that led us to explore pattern languages as an avenue for recording this design and implementation information
A pattern language is a set of related patterns that guides a reader through a set of closely linked problems and their solutions
We chose to begin writing a pattern language because the pattern form seemed to best capture the spirit of the notions that we had
We felt that a pattern language that could lead readers in a non-linear fashion from one topic to the next could bring together the interconnected threads of thought that we had
