  • 4 starsGreat first UML book for a Java developer

    This is a very good book for someone who has a worked with java at the developer level and is thinking about making the jump to the architect level. Arrington is an experienced teacher and his teaching proficiency shows all along the book. His style is very clear and sometimes repetitive, but that makes sure you get the idea through.
    Being a "hands on type of guy" I like the fact that the book explains the theory in the context of developing and example application.
    The UML & Object Oriented Analysis section of the book is truly outstanding, while the implementation part leaves a bit to be desired. It is also outdated as it still uses HTML production classes inside Servlets and not JSP. The second edition should fix this.
    Overall the best book on UML for a Java developer I have read so far.

  • 5 starsQuickly and Easily Applied to Real Projects

    As a Requirements Analyst and a budding Java Developer, I found Arrington's book to be EXTREMELY helpful. I used Enterprise Java with UML as both an initial learning tool and as a reference book for my daily project work with OO Requirements, Analysis, and Design. The use of the UML in these ares made my Java Development much easier and faster. It is easy to follow and includes helpful tips on how to overcome some of the common challenges faced during OO Software Development.

  • 4 starsExcellent Book for OO Analysis

    This book takes you through the development of an application from proposal to implementation. In alternating chapters the authors explain the use of UML for a particular step in the development lifecycle and then demonstrate what they just explained to develop a sample timecard system. The best part of the book, which is not significantly different than the first edition, is the first half in which the authors discuss requirements gathering and object oriented analysis. The book is worth the price for this first part alone.

    The second half of the book has been expanded to discuss new J2EE technologies. The chapters on evaluating technologies are good as far as discussing how to evaluate technologies but the actual analysis is weak as they ignore candidate technologies such as Struts in favor of their own homegrown HTML production framework. They also fail to explain why EJBs are a better choice for their sample application than simply using Servlets/JSPs/JDBC. The final section on design gets bogged down with too many pages of code listings and not enough explanations for the code.

    Arrington and Rayhan have done a very good job explaining UML although some familiarity with UML notation (or at least a handy manual) would be helpful. If you already own the first edition then you can ignore this edition. If you don't own it then you will definitely want to read this book. This is a must have book for any Java architect/developer doing OOAD.
