From the Author

In teaching UML to my students, nothing has been as effective as ‘Five-Step UML’, a process I devised by stripping away, one piece at a time, everything that got in the way of learning UML. Eventually, I was left with five simple, clear steps that show the students why and how to use UML, by having them start the class by actually solving problems with UML. After they learn the why and the how, they’re motivated to learn the what: the details of the UML notation. And they have a lot of fun in the process. Now I’m using Five-Step UML to teach .NET analysis and design in a larger framework I call Model-Driven Development: UML models as the central artifacts of the development process, with other artifacts (code, tests, documents, even estimates and schedules) all deriving from the models. With this book, I’ve collected my Five-Step UML and Model-Driven Development thoughts into one complete package. I also give a UML perspective of the .NET Common Language Runtime and the .NET Framework, providing a graphical overview that complements the on-line help.

By W Boudville HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on September 23, 2004
Format: Paperback
A curious thing about the title is its mention of .NET. Strictly, UML is independent of any environment or operating system or language. Those are implementation level details. But here, Shoemaker brings .NET into his UML discourse to show how UML can be well integrated with a .NET development process. And indeed, that is part of the book's value.

Having said this, most of the book can be read, ignoring .NET. So those of you into C++ or Java can still gain from the book. He gives lengthy, detailed explanations of defining and refining requirements. And then mapping these to components and interfaces and using these results to design architecture and components. Not a book for the impatient. Shoemaker takes time to carefully expound on the basic ideas. If you're new to UML, a deliberate slow reading might be best, to gain the most from what he is saying.

Another virtue of the book is that apart from the .NET details, it can be used years from now. (Barring any major advances in our understanding of the design process.) It is not one of those computer books that you have to replace in 2 or 3 years time.

I have several UML Books.
If the other books had done their job, I would not have had to buy this one,

This is the ONLY one that get's the point across without making you nod off. It's hard to put down. Probably because I finally found someone who can clearly explain this stuff.

The author has experience TEACHING this class and has learned from the students in how to do just that.

What's with the reviewer making fun of stick figures?
That's UML from the three amigos, not this author.

This is a UML book not a dot net book.

Format: Paperback
-Little UML that makes sense, even less .NET (not to mention the links between UML and .NET - 10% of this book?)

-Too much UML and modeling process freestyling.

-Can you take an author seriously if he keeps on quoting large blocs of text from other books and weblogs and particularly the ones from the Gilbert comic strip? How about one that not only uses "stick-man" symbol, but also provides his own personal "stick-pet" symbol?

-the whole book seems like filled with personal comments and stupid jokes.
