The practical guide to developing class models with Executable UML.

In Executable UML, Leon Starr shows how to build precise class models that form the foundation of rigorous software specifications. These specifications can be tested, debugged and optimized to generate code for multiple languages and platforms. Leon presents a wide range of examples from his projects in the fields of science and engineering-focusing on real-time environments where precise and accurate software specification is especially critical.

Using the materials in his classic How to Build Shlaer-Mellor Object Models as a starting point, Leon offers an introduction to Executable UML class models, expressing all diagrams in Executable UML notation with more object modeling techniques. Coverage includes:

  • Executable UML classes and attributes
  • Associations and relationships
  • Binary associations and association classes
  • Specialization-generalization relationships
  • Loop constraints
  • Reflexive, network, linear, and tree patterns for effective object modeling

Whether you're creating technical or business applications, Executable UML gives you the tools you need to build reliable software, readily deployed on a variety of specialized hardware and software platforms.
