Applying UML and Patterns: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design
by Craig Larman
Publisher: Prentice Hall 2004
Number of pages: 616
This book is a lucid and practical introduction to thinking and designing with objects—and creating systems that are well crafted, robust, and maintainable. Developers and students will learn object-oriented analysis and design (OOA/D) through three iterations of two cohesive, start-to-finish case studies. These case studies incrementally introduce key skills, essential OO principles and patterns, UML notation, and best practices.

The intent of this book is to help the beginning designer by giving them a sequence of interesting and moderately complex exercises in OO design. This book can also help managers develop a level of comfort with the process of OO software development.

The whole textbook is designed as a record of the dialogue of the author with his daughter who wants to learn programming. The author endeavors not to explain the Java programming language to the readers, but to teach them real programming.
by Matthias Felleisen, et al.
The authors put classes and the design of classes into the center of their approach. In this volume, they show students how object-oriented programming languages such as C# and Java support this effort with syntactic constructs.
