"The effect of ICONIX Training was superb!" -- Dean A. Sleeper, President, ACCESS

This course follows the material presented in our book--
"Agile Development with ICONIX Process" (Apress 2005) by Doug Rosenberg, Matt Stephens, and Mark Collins-Cope

Students will develop an interactive internet (.Net) mapping application in C# within the Visual Studio environment using Enterprise Architect to take the example project from use cases and functional requirements all the way through sequence and class diagrams, and will generate C# code and test cases. Students will learn, hands-on, how to best leverage the seamless bi-directional integration between EA and Microsoft Visual Studio.

The example project (known as the "mapplet") is an interactive hotel-finder application, built with ArcGIS Server from ESRI, that is currently in production use and can be found on the VResorts.com travel website at http://smartmaps.vresorts.com , and is featured in the popular book "Agile Development with ICONIX Process" (Apress 2005) by Doug Rosenberg, Matt Stephens, and Mark Collins-Cope.

ICONIX Process is a minimalist, streamlined approach to use case driven UML modeling which uses a core subset of UML diagrams and techniques to provide thorough coverage of object-oriented analysis and design while avoiding analysis paralysis. ICONIX Process was first described in Mr. Rosenberg's first book "Use Case Driven Object Modeling" (Addison-Wesley 1999) which has currently sold over 30,000 copies, and has been released in both Japanese and Chinese as well as English. The Agile/ICONIX book updates the material for use in an agile development environment, and illustrates the process all the way down to code with the mapplet example. "

Special focus will be given to Requirements Reviews, Preliminary Design Reviews, and Critical Design Reviews.

Agenda for a 2 or 3 Day Workshop

2 Weeks Prior to Class:
Since classroom time is limited, preparation beforehand on both sides is key to success!

Each student receives a free "Mastering UML with the ICONIX Process"CD-ROM tutorial to prepare for the topics covered in the training course. This allows our instructors to spend less time on the basics, and frees up more time to actually apply the concepts being taught to your project. By leveraging the power of interactive multimedia, you're able to make more efficient use of valuable training time.

Day 1:

Introduction to UML modeling using the ICONIX Process -- An overview of the object modeling activities to be performed and how they relate to the overall development lifecycle is presented. Special emphasis is placed on the differences in thought process between object-oriented decomposition, and those approaches such as functional and data-driven decomposition that may be more familiar to students.

Instructor led session and introduction of the Internet Bookstore Example.

Identification of domain objects and use cases -- Development of an initial domain object model and identification of broad categories of usage scenarios. UML class diagrams are used to describe problem domain objects, the associations between them, along with the attributes and operations of each object. Use Case diagrams are used to capture business processes and usage scenarios.

Assign lab teams in preparation for the next day.

Day 2:

The students are split into teams, with each team taking a package of use cases from the instructor-led work session. The teams then apply the techniques, in sequence, from the ICONIX Process, in a hands-on lab session.

Use Case Lab and review

Robustness Analysis Lab

Day 3:

Hands-on lab sessions continue
Reviews and wrap-up lecture

Review of Robustness models
Sequence diagram lab

Review of sequence diagrams and detailed static models
Wrap up lecture
