The first edition of Applying UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design quickly emerged as the leading OOA/D introduction; translated to many languages and adopted in universities and businesses worldwide. In this second edition, well-known object technology and iterative methods leader Craig Larman refines and expands this text for developers and students new to OOA/D, the UML, patterns, use cases, iterative development, and related topics.
The book helps newcomers to OOA/D learn how to think in objects by presenting three iterations of a single, cohesive case study, incrementally introducing the requirements and OOA/D activities, principles, and patterns that are most critical to success. It introduces the most frequently used UML diagramming notation, while emphasizing that OOA/D is much more than knowing UML notation. All case study iterations and skills are presented in the context of an agile version of the Unified Process -- a popular, modern iterative approach to software development. Throughout, Larman presents the topics in a fashion designed for learning and comprehension.
Among the topics introduced in Applying UML and Patterns are: * requirements and use cases, * domain object modeling, * core UML, * designing objects with responsibilities, * Gang of Four and other design patterns, * mapping designs to code (using Java as an example), * layered architectures, * architectural analysis, * package design, * iterative development, * the Unified Process.Foreword by Philippe Kruchten, the lead architect of the Rational Unified Process.
Too few people have a knack for explaining things. Fewer still have a handle on software analysis and design. Craig Larman has both. John Vlissides, author, Design Patterns and Pattern Hatching

the best book to learn about OOA/D, Object Oriented Analysis and Design.
This book is one of my favorites.

This book is a really well written, clear, comprehensive exposition of software delopment processes and best practices, uml and design patterns. An excellent read for someone who has just learned how to program in an object oriented language and wants to progress to the next level. The strong points of this book are: it is very clear, to the point and gives a broad coverage of all relevant problems and techiques in software development. Weak points: it is way too espensive, it could be more in depth in some areas, and it would benefit from the addition of a few chapters on how to use CASE tools. Also, it is nice to see the POS case study evolve throughout the book, but it would be even nicer if one could see a diagram or two from other areas and context once in a while....Continua
Programing need Class Diagram. 。
Communicate with custom need Domain model Business model and Use case。
This Book had a splendid discussion in Use case build and Domain model build.
Specially in Class Diagram, it have many Example to discuss Binding and Couping....Continua
