A tutorial book allows a C++++ programmer to develop a concrete blueprint or model of his software using the standard modeling language, UML, and successfully code the objects described in C++++ or any Object Oriented based language. Original. (All Users).

Books on object-oriented design can occasionally get bogged down in theory, but certainly not Jesse Liberty's Beginning Object- Oriented Analysis and Design with C++. This readable text covers all you need to know about the software engineering process and object-oriented design and includes real-world examples.
Liberty's tour of software engineering begins with analysis, where he uses examples from a video-store database. He then details class design and use cases that show off how the various players interact. Liberty also discusses architectural issues, including Web deployment, such as HTTP and CGI, and using CORBA and DCOM to handle distributed processing. Throughout this book the author relies on UML notation for all the basic notational diagrams (a handy appendix contains the basics of UML notation).
Once Liberty explains how the design is created, he turns toward implementation, or coding, in C++ (specifically with the Microsoft Foundation Classes). He shares some useful information about storing (or persisting) objects, describing basics such as relational databases and data structures in C++ code and even sharing cutting-edge ideas about object-oriented databases that can store and retrieve objects from your code. Liberty always presents issues of transaction management for robust, distributed systems. The author also includes some valuable tips for testing, debugging, and deployment for software. This useful survey, which describes the best tools and techniques without being overly doctrinaire, shows Liberty's expertise.
The book concludes with a workable--though small--example of a software utility, including all supporting documents from the software development cycle so the reader can see the complete picture. Overall, Beginning Object-Oriented Analysis and Design with C++ covers a lot of ground while putting some fun into the art of software engineering. --Richard V. DraganFrom the Publisher:
Beg Object Oriented Analysis & Design goes beyond the methodology and modeling language and talks about the entire process of professional software development. This is not a methodologist's book it's for programmers in the real world. It's written in a straight-forward manner which should be readily accessible to anyone developing software. If you are not a programmer you can safely ignore the code examples and focus on the process and the notation. This publication is concerned with how software is conceived, how you build a requirements document, how you make the "build/buy" decisions, how to organize your software development and how to deliver high-quality software on time and on budget. It also teaches you how to be effective in your use of inheritance, polymorphism, and encapsulation. How templates, exceptions and other advanced concepts can be harnessed in support of your project. How to use tools both to facilitate your design and to create and test your software.
