This guide covers the underlying philosophy of object orientation and demonstrates its practical usage. It explores both the analysis and the design phases os applying object-oriented techniques. Working from a solid foundation for specification and implementation, the handbook suggests an innovative approach which does not model reality - rather one that models the way reality is understood by people (not computers). By expanding system knowledge beyond a DP-restricted perspective, Martin and Odell extend OO analysis to support many other disciplines. The guide will be especially beneficial for DP methodologists, system analysts, data and process modelers, data and process administrators, and project managers and group leaders.
