Objects, Components, and Frameworks with UML: The Catalysis(SM) Approach

Buy

". . . We found Catalysis to be the first comprehensive object-oriented methodology to unify the concepts of objects, frameworks, and component technologies."
John McGehee, Senior Architect, Texas Instruments Works Project

Objects, Components, and Frameworks with UML: The Catalysis Approach is where you will learn how to use objects, frameworks, and UML notation to design, build, and reuse component-based software. Catalysis is a rapidly emerging UML-based method for object and component-based development. It provides you with a clear meaning of and systematic uses for the UML notation.

"The Catalysis Approach" explains how patterns can be characterized as model frameworks. Through the application of frameworks in requirements, specifications, architectures, and designs, you will find that all models contain recurring patterns of structure, behavior, and refinement. This opens the way to building models and designs rapidly by adapting and composing both generic and domain-specific modeling frameworks.

Key Features of Catalysis:

  • Shows how to build clear shared business models
  • Defines essential shared vocabulary in a precise way
  • Points out critical requirements and design decisions early while abstracting detail
  • Uses UML as a powerful, unambiguous communication tool between analysts and designers
  • Makes families of adaptable systems from coherent kits of pluggable components
  • Assigns interface-centric design and composition to components
  • Creates robust components, using techniques of precise specification and design
  • Applies and extracts reusable frameworks for designs, specifications, and architectures

In development and use with the authorsi many clients since 1992, Catalysis has influenced the UML standard and the MicrosoftTI component-definition model as implemented in the Microsoft Repository. Its simple core, on-demand precision, and separation of concerns support component technologies and standards based on Java, CORBA, COM+, and RMODP.

Theory of Finite Automata With an Introduction to Formal Languages
Theory of Finite Automata With an Introduction to Formal Languages
It often seems that mathematicians regularly provide answers well before the rest of the world finds reasons to ask the questions. The operation of the networks of relays used in the first computers is exactly described by Boolean functions. George Boole thereby made his contribution to computer science in the mid-1800s, and Boolean algebra is used...

Manipulative Tenants: Bacteria Associated with Arthropods (Frontiers in Microbiology)

In the English edition of his landmark book Endosymbiosis of Animals with Plant Microorganisms (1965), Professor Paul Buchner, probably the most prominent founder of systematic symbiosis research, wrote: “I too soon fell victim to the spell of this subject, and from 1911 on devoted myself to it.” Almost half a century...

Burdens of Proof: Cryptographic Culture and Evidence Law in the Age of Electronic Documents

The gradual disappearance of paper and its familiar evidential qualities affects almost every dimension of contemporary life. From health records to ballots, almost all documents are now digitized at some point of their life cycle, easily copied, altered, and distributed. In Burdens of Proof, Jean-François Blanchette examines...
