CPSC Coad and Yourdon’s Object-Oriented Analysis

If need be, it is possible to use concepts from one method with concepts from another technique, basically creating your own object development technique. The problem domain component – This will define the classes that should be in the problem domain. Coupling describes the level of interaction between or among components of an object-oriented design, just as levels of coupling could qnalysis used to assess the interaction between components of a structured design.

However, a name is certainly allowed and might give a reader a better idea of what the connection is supposed to represent ; when a name is analysid, it is written on the class diagram near just above, or just below the line that represents the same analyssi connection. My first thought was for component diagramsbut I have always viewed components as principally an implementation concern rather than part of the problem domain.

In order to ensure that the design is clear readable, and easily understoodCoad and Yourdon recommend. A message connection on a class diagram is a directed connection drawn using an arrow from one class on the diagram to other, that points in the direction of some message can be sent between the classes, when the system is operating. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

Object-oriented analysis Yourdon Press computing series. Unfortunately, while Coad and Yourdon’s pictures look nice, they aren’t particularly easy to draw. I use package diagrams as part of deciding how the components are to be grouped in terms of the source code repositories; this is closely related to my deployment strategy as each package will be intended for deployment to a particular server.

For this reason, subject diagrams are useful as a ‘top-level’ view to guide the programmer through to more detailed class diagrams for each ‘subject’ area. Coad and Yourdon assume that a graphical user interface will be used for the system that’s to be developed.

For example, there is a part of Javasoft’s online tutorial that describes its components and how to use them. Coad and Yourdon’s method for object-oriented design appeared shortly after their method for object-oriented analysisand it seems clear yourdpn they’re intended to be used together.

The rectangles are frequently split into three horizontal slices, roughly as follows:.

By waterfall, object analyst’s follow a logical progression through analysis, design, coding, testing, and maintenance. The criteria for object-oriented designs seem less specific or concrete than analysie criteria for structured designs, but they do seem to be worth noting. Views can be in any form, but are usually graphical and sometimes tabular with supporting text. Interaction Coupling refers to connections between classes due to message connections.

From inside the book. Pbject free to ask questions on our Oracle forum. Designing a human-computer orientee is beyond the scope of Computer Science The diagrams used in this course will be two small for subjects to be worthwhile. Now that we have covered the basics of the object approach, let’s take a look at how a real-world object is created by using these techniques. Their methodology is based on a technique called “SOSAS”, which stands for the five steps that help make up the analysis part of their methodology.


When possible, draw the generalization as centered above a row of its specializations, as is shown here. In most cases these methodologies are very similar, but each has its own way to graphically represent the entities. For traditional system analyst’s, the Rumbaugh’s methodology is the closest to the traditional approach to system analysis and design, and beginners will recognize familiar symbols and techniques.

This would be a useful analytical approach for a project I am currently working on it is a rather large problem domain.

Instance connections on class diagrams are extremely similar to binary two-way relationships on entity-relationship diagrams: Marvin 4 All rights reserved by Burleson.

The Rumbaugh method The Rumbaugh method is listed first because it is these authors favorite, and we find it a very friendly and easy methodology.

What it means to the systems analyst is that you have to go back to whatever step in the development life cycle and make the necessary changes that will then cascade these changes through the entire system.

A list of the associate the primary behaviors services with each object – Each object will have behaviors which uniquely belong to the object. However, oridnted use arrow that are thicker than the one shown above, and their arrows are grey instead of black.

However, it’s the subject of Computer Sciencewhich you can take after passing this course.

A viewpoint shows the design from the perspective of a particular stakeholder, using one or more views.
