A UML Pattern Language





A UML Pattern Language pairs the software design pattern concept with the Unified Modeling Language (UML) to offer a tool set for software professionals practicing both system modeling and software development. This book provides: a collection of patterns in the domain of system modeling, including those that are useful to management, operations, and deployment teams, as well as to software developers; a survey of the development of patterns and the UML; a discussion of the underlying theory of the patterns and instructions for using the language; a thorough exploration of the design process and model-driven development. A UML Pattern Language recognizes that design and modeling have become equal partners with programming and coding in the enterprise of software development. Providing both an understanding of the work of design and the way patterns and the UML combine to facilitate design.
