Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a general-purpose programming language for specifying and visualizing complex software, especially large, object-oriented projects. Object-oriented programming is when a programmer defines not only the data type of a data structure, but also the types of operations/functions that can be applied to the data structure. Java is a general purpose programming language with a number of features that make the language well suited for use on the World Wide Web. Fully road tested from the authors own courses, Object-Oriented Design with UML and Java shows how considering the modeling and programming languages together from the start can be beneficial, shifting the emphasis away from detailed programming issues, and instead allowing the focus to fall on the analysis of the meaning and accuracy of the model. No prior knowledge of object orientation is assumed, though some knowledge of Java or other high level programming language is required.

Key Features

* Integrates design and implementation, using Java and UML
* Includes case studies and exercises 
* Bridges the gap between programming texts and high level analysis books on design


Undergraduate students taking courses on O-O analysis and design, O-O modelling, Java programming, modelling with UML
