ABSTRACT: Adapting and Extending OOAD with UML for Rapid J2EE Analysis and Design
Conventional OOAD is based on the assumption that knowledge of basic concepts such as inheritance, abstraction, and polymorphism plus knowledge of UML diagrammatic conventions will prepare the student for building today’s distributed object-oriented systems. The major flaw in this assumption is that the above fundamentals equip the student only with a knowledge of the terminology and do not address the understanding required to design and develop high-performance, scalable n-tiered applications. In this session, we will:
– examine the problems with conventional OOAD techniques and the ‘heavyweight’ methodologies upon which they are based
– review lightweight alternatives to traditional OOAD (e.g. agile modeling)
– introduce a minimal set of UML-compliant and UML-extended deliverables required for rapid J2EE development and provide precise prescriptions for generating those deliverables
