Hassan Gomaa's Designing Concurrent, Distributed, and Real-Time Applications with UML provides a detailed overview of object-oriented design concepts, concurrent and distributed system technology, use cases, and Unified Modeling Language notation. It addresses an increasingly important area of software development: the design of real-time and distributed applications based on concurrent technology. Using UML notation, this book clearly illustrates how an object-oriented analysis and design method offers an effective solution to the unique challenges that these systems present.
In this book you will also find a comprehensive description of an analysis and design method specifically suited to the needs of real-time and distributed systems. Known as COMET (Concurrent Object Modeling and Architectural Design Method), this object-oriented method employs a highly iterative software life cycle based on use case technology and UML. This book will guide you through the COMET development life cycle, from requirements modeling through analysis and design, emphasizing the design requirements of distributed and real-time applications. Numerous in-depth case studies and examples show you how the COMET method can be applied to a variety of applications, including real-time, client/server, and distributed software design.
Designing Concurrent, Distributed, and Real-Time Applications with UML is an invaluable resource for all developers in this growing field. The information, technology, systematic method, comprehensive guidelines, and case studies presented here will greatly facilitate the creation of high-quality real-time and distributed applications.
