Object oriented modeling and design ebook
Object-Oriented Modeling and Design with UML by James Rumbaugh(This is a republication of my Amazon review of the same book.)
Note: I am reviewing the 1991 edition, which uses OMT notation (Object Modeling Technique). The 1995 and later editions of this book use the now-standardized UML notation. People needing to study UML should get the later edition.
(Here is the exact citation for the first edition I am reviewing: Rumbaugh, James, et al. Object-oriented modeling and design. Vol. 199. No. 1. Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice-hall, 1991.)
This book gets a full five stars! Object-oriented Modeling and Design is a classic foundational text for any programmers bookshelf.
As a teenager studying programming in the 1990s, I received this book as a gift from my parents, who had taught me Pascal and C. I have read and referred to it many times over the years.
In Object Oriented Modeling and Design, Rumbaugh et. al. present a clear and broadly comprehensive view of object-orientation in plain
English. It is a highly practical 500-page handbook of analyzing problems and designing solutions whose techniques are applicable to
virtually any programming language. There are numerous examples and exercises, and Part 4 of the book contains three extended case
studies---each of which take you on a tour of the whole methodology.
The authors meat-and-potatoes, pencil-and-paper approach makes this book invaluable to me as a programmer even after two decades.
It should be said that the sheer volume of in-depth subject matter covered (in the refreshing absence of ideology, I might add) can lead to dense Cliff Notes style reading. In this sense Object-Oriented Modeling and Design is more like an encyclopedia than a treatise. It is not for the impatient.
This first edition was criticized for presenting three different models, with three different notations: one for object modeling (the object model notation), one for processes and state transitions (the dynamic model notation), and a third for functional decomposition and data flow design (the functional model notation). Indeed the authors soon released a revision that used the more elaborate Unified Modeling Language for its diagrams.
Those who need UML should get the later edition. But the underlying concepts are timeless, and some will find that this first edition of
Object Oriented Modeling and Design is---in its clear language, uncluttered notation, extensive bibliographic references, and terminology that became the standard---a skeleton key to the incredibly rich OO literature of the time. The sections on implementation in both object-oriented and non-object-oriented languages are like a Rosetta stone translation of central OO concepts; this, and the accompanying chapter on relational database systems, add greatly to the books value as a reference work and as a guide to the literature.
There is also a 140-page Solutions Manual, which contains answers to the many exercises and problems in each chapter. I havent yet received this in the mail but, judging from the subset included in the main texts Answers to Selected Exercises, I can only imagine it will make a great companion volume.
In short, Object-Oriented Modeling and Design is 500 pages of awesome---a indispensable reference work, a guide to great OO
literature, and a densely packed handbook of software construction advice.

It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Object-oriented techniques and languages have been proven to significantly increase engineering efficiency in software development. Many benefits are expected from their introduction into electronic modeling. Among them are better support for model reusability and flexibility, more efficient system modeling, and more possibilities in design space exploration and prototyping. Object-Oriented Modeling explores the latest techniques in object-oriented methods, formalisms and hardware description language extensions.
