The Object Primer by Scott Ambler

Scott Ambler is an object technology veteran and this shows in his second edition of The Object Primer, published in February, 2001.

This book strives to provide a comprehensive introduction to the full range of disciplines that are used when practicing object technology. These disciplines range from collecting requirements and writing use cases all the way through to testing object software.


Besides providing a solid introduction to the core of the UML syntax, the book also provides worthy material on the following:

- object persistence
- object development processes
- java object-oriented implementation conventions
- user interface conventions

In general, this book is recommended as a relatively easy-read introduction to object-orientation for readers who don't want to get too bogged down in extraneous details. Advanced readers, however, should look to generally more advanced books on the subject.

For advanced readers there is nothing to compare to Bertrand Meyer's Object-Oriented Software Construction, 2nd Edition, more commonly referred to as OOSC2.

Thumbs up

Thanks. I will follow your advice.
I thought first that this book was a quite old but I have changed my mind by reading comments about this book in this forum or at Amazon.com.

Exclamation Object Primer 2/e

Just wanted to point out:
1. There is a unifying case study throughout the book, in fact there is two. A running example describes a university information system, I take it from requirements to code (both Java and DDL). Furthermore, there is a bank case study for you to work on throughout the book.
2. It is one of the few books that truly goes end-to-end, covering requirements, analysis, design, coding, and testing.
3. It goes beyond the UML to include things such as business rules, change cases, UI prototyping, essential models, and data models to name a few.

Check out www.ambysoft.com/theObjectPrimer.html for more details, including a link to a white paper summarizing the modeling techniques.

The first edition was published in 1995, the second edition in 2001. A 3rd edition is currently under consideration, likely for publication in the summer of 2003. This edition will cover UML 2.0 and Agile Modeling.

Question Third edition.

Scott, hot summer days are there. But where is the third edition of your book?

It's a work in production right now. Should be out this Autumn. Keep an eye out at www.agilemodeling.com/artifacts/index.htm as I post summaries of the modeling techniques that I'm covering. There's more to the book than that, of course, but it's what's applicable for the AM site.

- Scott
