Object-oriented analysis and design (OOAD) has over the years, become a vast field, encompassing such diverse topics as design process and principles, documentation tools, refactoring, and design and architectural patterns. For most students the learning experience is incomplete without implementation. This new textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to OOAD. The salient points of its coverage are: • A sound footing on object-oriented concepts such as classes, objects, interfaces, inheritance, polymorphism, dynamic linking, etc. • A good introduction to the stage of requirements analysis. • Use of UML to document user requirements and design. • An extensive treatment of the design process. • Coverage of implementation issues. • Appropriate use of design and architectural patterns. • Introduction to the art and craft of refactoring. • Pointers to resources that further the reader's knowledge. All the main case-studies used for this book have been implemented by the authors using Java. The text is liberally peppered with snippets of code, which are short and fairly self-explanatory and easy to read. Familiarity with a Java-like syntax and a broad understanding of the structure of Java would be helpful in using the book to its full potential.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The authors present a comprehensive, well-organized excursion through object-oriented analysis and design. The volume is organized into three parts, each containing four chapters. . The book also has an excellent appendix on the essentials of Java. . many undergraduate faculty members will consider it to be a comprehensive reference to the object-oriented elements that will be important for all future software developers. Summing Up: Recommended. Students of all levels, researchers/faculty, and professional software developers." (J. Beidler, Choice, Vol. 49 (5), January, 2012)"The book is clearly aimed at undergraduate students . it is useful for anyone wanting to learn OOAD, particularly practising or budding Java programmers. . Some useful examples are used throughout the book to illustrate the concepts . . There are also some very useful discussion, further reading and exercise sections at the end of each chapter. . A book on OOAD that is also an introductory text on Java, UML, design and architectural patterns and software architectures is a bargain not to be missed." (Kawal Banga, BCS, February, 2012)"Dathan and Ramnath's book begins with an extensive introduction to object-oriented concepts . . This book is very well written and well manufactured. The discussion of design decisions and their resolution is especially good. . This book fills a niche in the range of texts covering object-oriented analysis and design: it is for a course teaching general object-oriented analysis and design techniques using Java that emphasizes patterns and is based on extensive case studies."
