From the Back Cover:

If you create software using object-oriented languages and tools, then Responsibility-Driven Design has likely influenced your work. For over ten years Responsibility-Driven Design methodology has been the standard bearer of the behavioral approach to designing object-oriented software. Object Design: Roles, Responsibilities, and Collaborations focuses on the practice of designing objects as integral members of a community where each object has specific roles and responsibilities. The authors present the latest practices and techniques of Responsibility-Driven Design and show how you can apply them as you develop modern object-based applications.

Working within this conceptual framework, Rebecca Wirfs-Brock and Alan McKean present how user requirements, system architecture, and design patterns all contribute to the design of an effective object model. They introduce a rich vocabulary that designers can use to discuss aspects of their designs, discuss design trade-offs, and offer practical guidelines for enhancing the reliability and flexibility of applications. In addition, case studies and real-world examples demonstrate how the principles and techniques of Responsibility-Driven Design apply to real-world software designs.

You'll find coverage of such topics as:

  • Strategies for selecting and rejecting candidate objects in an emerging design model
  • Object role stereotypes and how to identify objects' behaviors
  • How to characterize objects using role stereotypes
  • Allocating responsibilities to appropriate objects
  • Developing a collaboration model
  • Strategies for designing application control centers
  • Documenting and describing a design, focusing on use cases, design conversations, and annotations
  • Strategies for enhancing reliability, including handling exceptions and recovering from errors
  • How to characterize software variations and design to support them for greater flexibility
  • How to categorize and treat various kinds of design problems
  • As all experienced designers know, software design is part art and inspiration and part consistent effort and solid technique. Object Design: Roles, Responsibilities, and Collaborations will help all software designers--from students to seasoned professionals--develop both the concrete reasoning skills and the design expertise necessary to produce responsible software designs.
