Tools for Structured and Object-Oriented Design

An Introduction to Programming Logic

Seventh Edition

Marilyn Bohl - Maria Rynn

 

Tools for Structured and Object-Oriented Design: An Introduction to Programming Logic, Seventh Edition, teaches program design in a well-thought-out, language-independent manner, assuming no programming background whatsoever.

 

The authors begin with the absolute basics, building on them sequentially, one step at a time. Simply and clearly, they show how to analyze problems, and express the solutions in ways computers can be directed to follow.

 

Readers will learn how to use essential problem-solving tools, from ANSI/ISO standard flowcharting to pseudocode, structure charts, and UML. Sample problems and exercises are included throughout. Many chapters include enrichment sections illustrating key concepts in Visual Basic. Three final chapters demonstrate design solutions to more complex but common applications (sorting, searching, file processing, and report writing).

 

This new edition has been thoroughly updated with more coverage of object-oriented design and UML diagramming. Dozens of new exercises are provided, and all existing exercises have been updated as needed. The entire book has been redesigned to improve content flow and readability, and all screen images now reflect the new Windows Vista interface.

 

Coverage includes:

  • Maintaining a coherent overall structure in program design
  • Top-down, modular program development techniques, including structure charts
  • Utilizing flowcharts and pseudocode to plan the logic of a well-structured program
  • Using control structures: SIMPLE SEQUENCE, IFTHENELSE, DOWHILE, CASE, and DOUNTIL
  • Working with arrays: from one- and two-dimensional arrays to advanced searching and sorting
  • Object-oriented design: classes, objects, data members, methods, encapsulation, and overloading, polymorphism, abstract classes, and inner classes
  • Inheritance, generalization/specialization relationships, association, aggregation, and composition
  • The evolution of Unified Modeling Language (UML) and use of UML class and object diagrams in problem solving
