Tom Pender's UML Bible

Wiley just released Tom Pender's UML Bible, which does an excellent job at presenting and comparing both UML 1.4 and 2.0.

This book is highly recommended because not only is it clearly written, but it is also a comprehensive treatment of the full UML standard, including OCL, XMI and Action Semantics. In addition, an early chapter is devoted to explaining object-oriented concepts, so the UML is put into the right context and not just treated as a notation.

Because of the thorough comparisons made between UML 1.4 and UML 2.0, the UML Bible will ease the transition for many modelers to the latest, substantially revised version of the standard.

The chapter on OCL is very readable and makes this difficult topic a little easier for most people to appreciate.

The chapter on XMI is really just an introduction to the topic (we are partial to our own pages on XMI ) but this chapter does include a very nice introduction to Diagram Interchange, a cool addition to UML 2.0.

Other highlights of UML Bible:

* Appendices include very usable notation guides, one for UML 1.4 and another for UML 2.0.
* A concise glossary that includes diagrams is included at the back.
* One major example dominates the book, a Ticketing System.
* A companion web site provides useful links and downloads.

The author, Tom Pender, is a software industry veteran who has devoted his time recently to teaching object-oriented design using the UML. He has also authored online training courses for DigitalThink, Inc. that center around the OOAD process and is the author of a previous book, the UML Weekend Crash Course.
