From the Back Cover

The first integrated, hierarchical model of software structures

This book provides the first fully integrated approach to software paradigms commonly used to develop large software applications, with coverage ranging from discrete problems to full-scale applications. The book focuses on providing a structure for understanding a hierarchy of software development paradigms and showing the relationships between the different paradigms.

In order to provide a clear understanding of how these "building blocks" are used to solve today's complex software design problems, the author assesses the benefits and disadvantages of each paradigm in terms of its contribution to the design process and, where applicable, provides a taxonomy for the paradigm of substructures.

Coverage includes paradigms in the areas of:

  • Design patterns
  • Software components
  • Software architectures
  • Frameworks

Chapters within each paradigm include design issues related to building and using the paradigm and feature numerous real-world applications.

Software Paradigms presents a practical overview of the hierarchy of paradigms, with emphasis on how they build upon each other. It is an excellent teaching tool for undergraduates and graduates, and a comprehensive and reliable reference for software engineers. Challenging questions at the end of each chapter pose research problems that will lead to more detailed investigations of the topics discussed within the chapter.

Format: Hardcover
I am a student of computer science, an older adult learner, and I rely upon Amazon to build a library of good technical books to further my education. This is a five star book. The writing is clear and direct. The author explains complicated subjects in an easy to understand manner suitable for the self learner and computer science student alike.

Format: Hardcover
I went through the whole book trying to find usefull information, but infortunately, it's a book filled with definitions. I didn't find any value, or I don't think can bring anything to developer, except may to none technical manager who wants to sound technical.

I am a bit annoyed that in 2005 still authors, write books about denitions, without any clear porpuse.
