Great OO Book for Mid to Advanced Desingers

I've read quite a number of books on OOAD. This book is unique in that it not only covers the fundementals of objects, but also many contemporary and advanced topics. I especially like the OODB chapter, which talks about mapping from objects to tables -- a topic that I rarely come across in other books. The discussion on patterns involving interfaces are very nice too. In the architecture area, the infusion of MVC pattern into web application design is inspiring.In summary, this book is useful for programmers at all level. But mid to advanced level designers will find it particular interesting.

Enjoyable OO Reading

This book covers the basic concepts of object classes, associations, etc. in a very understandable manner. The author writes in a very nice style and the material is easily digested.The large number of UML diagrams really helps a lot. I am also pleased that the author follows standard styles in UML.The book also covers needed chapters with intermediate and advanced topics, which is seldomly found in other OO books. The tips, rules, and suggestions will benifit the developers who need to model the system and write the code.The bottom line -- I enjoy reading this book very much and would highly recommend it to others.

Deep into Objects

I borrowed a copy of this book to read during my business trip. It is a pretty well written book with in depth coverage of object design. You won't learn how to write codes here (the book kind of assume you know). But it certainly gives you all the essence of object programming. With it you can probably design better Java codes, or even C# codes in the future :) The architecture chapter is quite enjoyable too. I have recommended the book to my developers (also got a copy myself for reference).

A great book for object designers / programmers

I ran into this book while browsing at a neighborhood book store. I have done some Java progamming but wanted to learn more about objects. I scanned through several object books and found this one to be of great value. I also downloaded the sample Java codes and found them very useful. I believe I can learn a lot from this book and eventually make myself a good object designer!

Best deal to learn and master Object Oriented

This book contains lots of information in analysis and design about Object Oriented. Starting from simple UML with real application to distributed Object Oriented with Corba. It covers extensive case studies. It also provides answers to every exercises that the readers can try themselves. Well worthed for a price of just $40.00.
