Using Select Use Case Tool for Rapid Applications Development

Essential UMLTm fast

Essential UML fast introduces you to the concepts of object-oriented analysis, design and programming, using the Unified Modeling Language. UML is one of the best known modelling languages in the object-oriented software development world, and is fast becoming a standard modelling language for OO software developers. With lots of examples and plenty of detailed illustrations, it's easy to work through the techniques step-by-step, and get up and running with UML fast. One of the best known use case tools, Select Enterprise, is used and advice is given on how to set it up and make best use of it so that you can quickly model practical software.You will learn about:Use case tools and software modelling basicsSetting up and running Select EnterpriseUse case diagramsClass diagramsObject interaction diagramsBehavioural modellingPatterns and techniques for fast software modelling and developmentThe modelling examples included in this book are available at the Essential series site: http:www.essential-series.com

Essential ColdFusion fast

Developing Web-Based Applications

Essential ColdFusion fast

This book is aimed at giving the reader a working knowledge of ColdFusion. It provides instructional advice and explains how ColdFusion works with other web-based technologies. Plenty of working examples are included - also available on a website powered by ColdFusion. The author, Matthew Norman, has written a "get started quick" guide, which describes the setting up of a development system - he talks about how to achieve this on a budget, using techniques that are applicable to large scale operations. Anyone with a working knowledge of the Internet and who wants to learn more about what ColdFusion does and how they can start using it quickly will find this book invaluable.

Component-Based Software Testing with UML

Component-Based Software Testing with UML

Component-based software development regards software construction in terms of conventional engineering disciplines where the assembly of systems from readily-available prefabricated parts is the norm. Because both component-based systems themselves and the stakeholders in component-based development projects are different from traditional software systems, component-based testing also needs to deviate from traditional software testing approaches. Gross first describes the specific challenges related to component-based testing like the lack of internal knowledge of a component or the usage of a component in diverse contexts. He argues that only built-in contract testing, a test organization for component-based applications founded on building test artifacts directly into components, can prevent catastrophic failures like the one that caused the now famous ARIANE 5 crash in 1996. Since building testing into components has implications for component development, built-in contract testing is integrated with and made to complement a model-driven development method. Here UML models are used to derive the testing architecture for an application, the testing interfaces and the component testers. The method also provides a process and guidelines for modeling and developing these artifacts. This book is the first comprehensive treatment of the intricacies of testing component-based software systems. With its strong modeling background, it appeals to researchers and graduate students specializing in component-based software engineering. Professionals architecting and developing component-based systems will profit from the UML-based methodology and the implementation hints based on the XUnit and JUnit frameworks.

Real Time UML Workshop for Embedded Systems

Real Time UML Workshop for Embedded Systems

This practical new book provides much-needed, practical, hands-on experience capturing analysis and design in UML. It holds the hands of engineers making the difficult leap from developing in C to the higher-level and more robust Unified Modeling Language, thereby supporting professional development for engineers looking to broaden their skill-sets in order to become more saleable in the job market. It provides a laboratory environment through a series of progressively more complex exercises that act as building blocks, illustrating the various aspects of UML and its application to real-time and embedded systems. With its focus on gaining proficiency, it goes a significant step beyond basic UML overviews, providing both comprehensive methodology and the best level of supporting exercises available on the market. Each exercise has a matching solution which is thoroughly explained step-by-step in the back of the book. The techniques used to solve these problems come from the author’s decades of experience designing and constructing real-time systems. After the exercises have been successfully completed, the book will act as a desk reference for engineers, reminding them of how many of the problems they face in their designs can be solved. Tutorial style text with keen focus on in-depth presentation and solution of real-world example problems Highly popular, respected and experienced author
