Editorial Reviews Review

Notable mainly for its clear and thorough exploration of the Object Modeling Technique (OMT)--a generic way of representing objects and their relationships--this book is good as a primer and great as a knowledge booster for those already familiar with object-oriented concepts. Object-Oriented Modeling and Design teaches you how to approach problems by breaking them down into interrelated pieces, then implementing the pieces. In addition to its documentation of the Object Modeling Technique (OMT), a graphical notation for depicting object-oriented systems, Object-Oriented Modeling and Design does a first-rate job of explaining basic and advanced object-orientation concepts. The book then moves on to explain the authors' techniques for breaking down problems into components and figuring out systems of interrelated objects that can be used as designs for programs. Interestingly, the authors devote part of their book to implementing object-oriented solutions in non-object-oriented languages--mainly C, Ada, and Fortran. There's also a great discussion of implementing object-oriented designs in relational database environments. The authors conclude their book with a sort of recipe section, detailing architectures for various types of programs in OMT.

From the Publisher

This text applies object-oriented techniques to the entire software development cycle.

Format: Hardcover
A landmark in OO literature: always was and always will be. Taking things from step zero to discussing very advanced issues. The notation used is the one where UML has borrowed most of its elements (especially the class diagrams). The process it describes has become the typical process for OO development (especially 2nd generation OMT as described through a series of articles in JOOP by Rumbaugh). In all, a book that leaves nothing uncovered from notation to process and more importantly in depth discussions on OO concepts and techniques that will always be true. Finally, this is one of the few books that discuss how to implement an OO design into a non-OO language such as C, Pascal, Fortran etc. END

32 of 37 people found the following review helpful By Carl L. Gonsalves on March 25, 1999
Format: Hardcover
This book gives what seems like a reasonably good description of each of the three OMT models: object, functional and dynamic. Unfortunately, when attempting to use the ideas presented, one becomes immediately aware that no explanation of how to use all three models together is given.
Looking at the examples, one finds that the examples in each model's section are totally unrelated to the examples in the other two model's sections. Essentially, the authors have fabricated example systems for each section that are easy to describe using that particular model, but have failed to show the other two models for those systems. This book would have been far better if the same set of examples were carried through the three types of models, showing how they interrelate.
The primary problem with the book, however, seems to be that it's about OMT. OMT has many serious flaws. OMT's object model notation is reasonable. The functional model notation is satisfactory. The dynamic model is incomplete. And the three models are not related to eachother in any clear way by this book. Without fixing the flaws inherent in OMT, any book on OMT is going to be mostly useless.

This book is an excellent book for beginners as well as advanced guys in the charismatic field of OMT and OOAD. The book gives an excellent description of Object Modelling, Functional modelling and Dynamic modelling. The examples are good and understandable but they can be simplified. Over all an interesting and good book.
