Domain-Driven Design

I recently discovered a newly published book with the title Domain-Driven Design by Eric Evans.

As the title suggests, this book addresses object design from an angle which is rarely treated with such depth and insight, namely, domain modeling. Domain modeling shifts the focus of design to the real-world objects in a particular domain of interest.

Author Eric Evans combines his knowledge of modeling complex domains with UML and refactoring to train the reader how to apply design rules to iteratively improve an object model by focusing on well-defined patterns of domain modeling.

What also makes this title a good read is the author's writing style, which is clear and engaging. One good example:

Decompose design elements (operations, interfaces, classes, and aggregates) into cohesive units, taking into consideration your intuition of the important divisions in the domain. Observe the axes of change and stability through successive refactorings and look for the underlying conceptual contours that explain these shearing patterns. Align the model with the consistent aspects of the domain that make it a viable area of knowledge in the first place.

(page 261, Conceptual Contours)

For online information about the book and domain-driven design, see the author's web site:
