Book Overview

PrefaceTo understand anything, you should not try to understand everything.- Aristotle The whole is greater than the sum of the parts; the part is greater than a fraction of the whole.- Aristotle Architecting is a challenging process of abstraction, composition, modularity, and simplification to create an architecture specification. An architecture specification captures the essence and definition of the system: understanding, parts, and the relationships...

VERY comprehensive...

Janis has done a wonderful job of explaining all the key concepts and elements of RM-ODP. Her diagrams are clear, the references are numerous, and you will definitely have a ton of confidence about the RM-ODP once you're finished with the book. I revisited the ISO standards once I finished Putman's book and found the information much more meaningful. Some drawbacks: References to the Zachman Framework (interesting, but that work really didn't move forward appreciably), References to Boehm's Spiral Model (Barry's work is spectacular, but referencing the Rational Unified Process, which is much more mainstream, would have been of great benefit to the reader), and References to some technologies that have disappeared (TINA, for instance). All in all though, don't let that discourage you from getting this book. If you're using RM-ODP, this is THE book to have.

RM-ODP Finally Explained !!

Reference Model of Open Distributed ProcessingWow. In a word. This is the definitive source on comprehending the RM-ODP specifications. If you are a Software Architect and are considering the RM-ODP school - this is the book for you.I have only just completed my first pass through this 800+ page guide/tutorial/reference and know that I will have to pass through it several times again.The preface to this work quotes Aristotle "To understand anything, you should not try to understand everything". Use this as your guide in plunging through the depths of this work. Operate under the assumption, as I did, that you will either comprehend it on the next pass or it will be referenced again later in the work. The task Janis Putman must have set for herself in shedding more than light: clarity - on the subject of RM-ODP, had to have been daunting. She succeeds! Filled to the brim with diagrams, cross-references, different views into the work - this is worth every penny if RM-ODP means anything in your life. If you are involved in distributed system development - you must have this book.If you have tried to comprehend the RM-ODP specification on your own - stop! I attempted that myself and got somewhere into the middle of it before I lost the threads I was following. This Book will pull it all together for you.My review at this time is twofold: Relief I made it through the experience and Joy that the trip was worth the time to go from cover to cover.
