Object Oriented Software Engineering Ivar Jacobson Ebook REPACK

This landmark book provides a thorough overview of the Unified Process for software development, with a practical focus on modeling using the Unified Modeling Language (UML). The Unified Process goes beyond mere object-oriented analysis and design to spell out a proven family of techniques that supports the complete software development life cycle. The result is a component-based process that is use-case driven, architecture-centric, iterative, and incremental.

Object Oriented Software Engineering Ivar Jacobson Ebook


In 1992 he co-authored the book Object-Oriented Software Engineering - A Use Case Driven Approach,[4] which laid the foundation of the OOSE system engineering method and helped to popularize use cases for capturing functional requirements, especially in software development. In 1994 he published a book about use cases and object-oriented techniques applied to business models and business process reengineering.[5]

At the same time, Grady Booch and James Rumbaugh worked at unifying their object-oriented analysis and design methods, the Booch method and Object Modeling Technique (OMT) respectively. In 1995 Ivar Jacobson joined them and together they created the Unified Modelling Language (UML), which includes use case modeling. UML was standardized by the Object Management Group (OMG) in 1997.[6] Jacobson, Booch and Rumbaugh also worked on a refinement of the Objectory software development process. The resulting Unified Process was published in 1999 and promoted a use case driven approach.[7]

Grady Booch, James Rumbaugh, and Ivar Jacobson are the original designers of the Unified Modeling Language and three of the most widely known names in the field of software engineering. Accomplished authors, they are recognized worldwide for many significant contributions to the development of object technology, including the Booch Method, the Object Modeling Technique (OMT), and the Objectory (OOSE) Process. Booch and Rumbaugh work at IBM, and Jacobson is an independent consultant.

Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a language for system specification that was created by several modeling specialists to consolidate and standardize a great number of languages and development methods of object-oriented software appearing in the late 1980s and early 1990s. UML comprises a set of diagrams used to specify, model, construct and document software systems. UML diagrams can be used in both the development of simple systems and in large and complex systems, being also used to model other non software systems.

In the middle of the 1990s, three authors of object-oriented software development methods, James Rumbaugh (Object Modeling Technique (OMT)), Grady Booch (Object-Oriented Design (OOD)) and Ivar Jacobson (Object-Oriented Software Engineering (OOSE), also proposed the Use Cases), start a project for unifying their methodologies, working together at Rational Software, creating the UML (Rumbaugh et al. 1999). In 1997, the...

Head First Object-Oriented Analysis & Design shows you how to analyze, design, and write serious object-oriented software: software that's easy to reuse, maintain, and extend; software that doesn't hurt your head; software that lets you add new features without breaking the old ones. Inside you will learn how to:

Dave West would like to describe himself as sheik geek. Unfortunately no one else would describe him in that way. They would say he is a professional Englishman who likes to talk about software development best practices with the passion and energy of an evangelical preacher. Recently Dave has moved to Ivar Jacobson Consulting, where he runs the Americas and can combine his desire to talk about software development and spread the word on rugby and football, and argue that cricket is more exciting that baseball.Before running the Americas for Ivar Jacobson Consulting, Dave worked for a number of years at Rational Software (now a part of IBM). Dave held many positions at Rational and then IBM, including Product Manager for RUP where he introduced the idea of process plug-ins and agility to RUP. Dave still laments the days when he use to sit in a cube and write software in the city of London. This is where he believes he cut his teeth writing big insurance systems with nothing but a green screen and a process flow chart. Dave can be contacted at, and if he is not with customers or drinking warm beer with his friends in Boston, he will email you back.

UML Diagrams stands for Unified Modeling Language. It is a standard which is mainly used for creating object-oriented, meaningful documentation models for any software system present in the real world. It provides us a way to develop rich models that describe the working of any software/hardware systems.

UML is an object-oriented unified modeling language. It was invented by brilliant software engineers Grady Booch, Ivar Jacobson, and James Rumbaugh of Rational software during 1994 and 1995. It was under development until 1996.
