Summary and Info
The Elements of UML Style is for all developers who create models using the Unified Modeling Language (UML), especially those in teams where understandability and consistency are critical. Just as Strunk & White's The Elements of Style provides rules of usage for writing using the English language, this text furnishes a set of rules for modeling in the UML. Scott Ambler describes a collection of standards and guidelines for creating effective UML diagrams that are concise and easy to understand. This book provides conventions for: Class diagrams, Use case diagrams, Sequence Diagrams, Activity diagrams, State chart diagrams, Collaboration diagrams, Deployment diagrams, and Component diagrams. The Elements of UML Style sets the rules for style that will improve programming productivity. Scott W. Ambler is the President of Ronin International, Inc. (www.ronin-intl.com).
