Anyone considering using the services of an Oracle support expert should independently investigate their credentials obbject experience, and not rely on advertisements and self-proclaimed expertise. The most important of these are probably the following; more will be mentioned later. The Rumbaugh method The Rumbaugh method is listed first because it is these authors favorite, and we find it a very friendly and easy methodology. Considerations thus far My first thought was for component diagramsbut I have always viewed components as principally an boject concern rather than part of the problem domain.

The traditional systems development approach is sometimes referred to as the waterfall method. What you are describing could be viewed, from one perspective, as a “package”. By waterfall, object analyst’s follow a logical progression through analysis, design, coding, testing, and maintenance. The iterative process either adds new or more clearly defines existing properties, unlike the traditional approach that would re-hash specifications that are already done.

The advice to keep services short and simple yourdpn, no more than five or six statements orienter in most cases, if implemented using Smalltalk is repeated here. You can even have a class that is, indirectly, a generalization of another one in more than one way. The Shlaer-Mellor method Shlaer-Mellor methodology has its primary strength in system design and is considered somewhat weak on analysis. The Rumbaugh object model is very much like an entity relationship diagram except that there are now behaviors in the diagram and class hierarchies.

A list of the associate the primary behaviors services with each object – Each object will have behaviors which uniquely belong to the object. On the other hand, there are some significant differences between classes in an object-oriented specification, and entities in an entity-relationship ypurdon. Experiencing an Object Perspective.


In class diagrams, services can be inherited along with attributes.

From inside the book. Account Options Sign in. New material includes updated terminology; finding lasses and objects; defining attributes; defining services; object-oriented analysis and CASE; moving These are difficult to draw; to save time, we’ll cowd use a rectangle instead. Coupling describes the level of interaction between or among components of an object-oriented design, just as levels of coupling could be used to assess the interaction between components of a structured design.

Furthermore, it doesn’t matter which system development technique you use, you will follow the same oriiented steps in system development.

CPSC Coad and Yourdon’s Object-Oriented Analysis

If your audience will understand the Coad-Yourdon notation or you can point them toward a reference source that they can easily obtain, use that notation. The Booch method Booch’s methodology has its primary strength in the object system design. In systems that are as small as the ones that can be presented in this course, one might tend to find that almost every message connection that could exist, does actually exist, on the class diagram.

This material was briefly covered during lectures on March 14, ; this page describes Coad and Yourdon’s method – particularly, the design evaluation criteria it provides – in more detail than in the lecture. For example, suppose that our end-users are ooriented the testing phase when they realize that they need an coax screen. We’ll put the name of the class inside the rectangle, and we’ll eventually list attributes and services, separately.

However, the design should ”stabilize” relatively quickly, with changes becoming progressively smaller as development proceeds. Their methodology is based on a technique called “SOSAS”, which stands for the five steps that help make up the analysis part of their methodology.

As Coad and Yourdon note, it’s certainly possible that message connections using more than three parameters can be useful, but this is a reasonable to limit to set when you’re looking for connections that are overly complex. In order to ensure that the design is clear readable, and easily understoodCoad and Yourdon recommend.

According to Coad and Yourdon, a structure is an expression of problem-domain wnalysis, pertinent to the system’s responsibilities. Services that an object in a class must provide will almost certainly include functions that report the values of the object’s attributes, as well as functions that change at least some of these.


Coad and Yourdon don’t believe it’s necessary to assign names to instance connections, unless there are multiple connections between the same pair of classes. Unfortunately, while Coad and Yourdon’s pictures look nice, they aren’t particularly easy to draw. Analysi Booch has included in his methodology a requirements analysis that is similar to a traditional requirements analysis, as well as a domain analysis phase. They do note that it’s possible to reuse more than code, during object-oriented development: In the book, a notation is suggested for use along with the analysis approach as youron was recognised that an analytical method needs a supporting notation for it to be practical.

The problem domain component – This will define the classes that should be in the problem domain. This highly respected guide to object-oriented programming has been updated to reflect the most recent advances in this still-evolving methodology.

In most cases these methodologies are very similar, but each has its own way to graphically represent the entities. The state model records the different states of objects and changes that can occur between analysiw objects.

Following Coad and Yourdon, we’ll draw instance connections as undirected connections plain straight lines between the pair of classes they connect. All legitimate Oracle experts publish their Oracle qualifications. I also considered package diagrams but this also seems inappropriate. Now that we have covered the basics of the object approach, let’s take a look at how a real-world object is created by using these techniques. Coad and Yourdon’s method for object-oriented design appeared shortly after their method for object-oriented analysisand it seems clear that they’re coax to be used together.
