Table of Contents
Summary: This book, through its clear and precise writing style, provides comprehensive guidelines for students who want to learn object-oriented analysis and design. The newcomers to OOA/D can learn throughout this book how to “think in objects”. In this context, the book presents three iterations of each cohesive case study, and introduces the requirements, OOA/D activities, principles, and patterns.
