D'Souza Desmond Francis, Wills Alan Cameron. Objects, Components, and Frameworks with UML: The Catalysis Approach
Addison-Wesley Professional, 1998. — 816 p. — ISBN-10 0201310120; ISBN-13 978-0201310122.
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.
After a quick introduction to the design process Catalysis, this book moves on to carefully defining objects, their attributes, operations, and collaborations. (Generally, Catalysis objects and components are "decoupled" so that they can work more independently, leading to easier reuse and customization.)
The authors then turn to modeling and design, using a spreadsheet program as their example. Next, the authors discuss component-based design, where projects are assembled with components. The book closes with an effective tour of the actual Catalysis design process, illustrated with a case study for a video-rental store. All design documents, written in the Unified Modeling Language (UML), are provided along with some useful expert advice on creating better design documents and components.
Judging from the evidence here, the Catalysis design method can offer some real advantages for today's software, which often must evolve to meet unforeseen requirements (international markets or new platforms such as the Web). Designed according to the principles outlined in the book, components and designs can offer a higher level of reuse. Even if you do not actually adopt the Catalysis process, this authoritative and admirably clear book offers a wealth of design expertise for anyone interested in being more productive with objects and UML. --Richard Dragan
". . . 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.
