ICONIX ANNOUNCES NEW BOOK, CDROM, AND TRAINING WORKSHOP, ALL TARGETING UML
Santa Monica, CA -- ICONIX Software, a leading provider of training and
consulting in Object Technology, is pleased to announce the newly released,
Applying Use Case Driven Object
Modeling with UML, Addison-Wesley, June
2001, written by Doug Rosenberg, founder and president of ICONIX, and
Kendall Scott. Published by Addison-Wesley, the book is a hands-on guide
to putting a use case driven methodology to work in real-world situations.
This companion workbook to Use Case Driven Object
Modeling with UML,
Addison-Wesley, March 1999, bridges the gap between the theory presented in
the authors' first book, and the practical issues involved in the
development of an internet/E-Commerce application.
"The number one complaint that people have about methodology books is the
lack of cohesive examples," commented Kendall Scott, co-author. "The
example that runs through the workbook not only satisfies that need, but
also offers the readers the chance to participate in designing the example
system, instead of just following along."
"Many practitioners struggle when it comes to applying use cases," said
Paul Becker, senior editor, Addison-Wesley. "This new book goes beyond
teaching and forces the reader to put use cases to work."
In conjunction with the new workbook, the company has also released, Inside
the ICONIX Process, Volume 1, a CD-ROM detailing the company's streamlined
approach to UML modeling,using a core subset of fundamentally important
diagrams. Designed to get projects from use cases to code quickly and
efficiently, this object-oriented development approach is in widespread use
across the industry today.
Additionally, the company has announced a new onsite training workshop, UML
for E-Commerce. The workshop combines the theory of the ICONIX process, an
instructor-led work session where object models and use case models will be
started for an Internet Bookstore project, and hands-on lab sessions where
students use visual modeling tools to refine the models.
Doug Rosenberg, president of ICONIX, stated, "The combination of the new
workbook, which contains an extensive E-Commerce example model for an
Internet Bookstore, and the new CD-ROM, which, along with our first book,
describes the ICONIX Process in great detail, gives ICONIX a tremendous
advantage in delivering UML for E-Commerce efficiently, in a highly
compressed time format."
