Hello all,
I yesterday got the Book (written in German) by the Austrian Authors

M.Hitz, G. Kappel, E. Kapsamer, W. Retschitzegger:
"UMLQWork"
3rd Edition (!! updated to UML-2 now)
dpunkt.Verlag, 2006
ISBN: 3-89864-261-5

It is the only book I know that also discusses
- the sense of using what,
- weaknesses of UML (very helpfull for finding ones own path through the UML djungle)

But if I would cite it here: Is it available in English at all?

PS: I just tried to find it in the internet.
Not found on Amazon.
Found at the German www.computerbooks.de by searching for "UML Work" without the '@' only.

My book store just told me no English version is expected to come, because the old version for UML-1 had not been translated to English as well. Sorry.

Wrong Amazon - UML @ Work
This is an international site and there are some German posters, bartenders, and sheriffs around that may appreciate a book like this
(maybe not here in the SCEA forum, but check out (for example) the Web Services and OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forums) � where you can get to the core of the matter without having to cut through the indirection of a comparatively ambiguous foreign language.
The fact that it isn't a translation or isn't translated to another language is probably a good thing. I read German translations of numerous Science Fiction novels and discovered years later that these translations were a poor representation of the original.
