Is The Object Primer a recommended text-book. I thought I saw that it was
somewhere but can't remember where.

Is it an introduction to OO or for the more advanced, for developers or architects?

Hi Helen,
This is not an introductory book, as far as I read through most of the reviews on the book... I even have posted a thread that asks the author about one of the reviews at Amazon that the title seems to be for introduction to OO topic. But it is not.... You may want to join that thread, when the author replies...

Since our posted topics are similar, we should group them together in the same place so that both the author and ranchers won't be tired of going from one thread to another...

Thanks Ko Ko.

But I really want to know if it's a recommended text book. It'd be more tiring if everything is lumped into a few threads IMHO.

A) UML Distilled by M. Fowlerr
B) Applying UML & Patterns by C Larman.

Thanks Sunder.

I thought they had started including Agile processes as well.

I agree that Applying UML & Patterns by C Larman is a good textbook, the book contains a case that is point-of-sell system. We can step by step to follow this case and learn some concept of OO analysis and design. The book is good for beginner of using OOA&D to build up a small project.

I'd say that With Booch's OOA/D and Rumbaugh et al's OMT of the same mid-90's era and Jacobsen's Use Cases complete a set of the most powerful contemporary approaches to software development prior to UML. Hardly any surprise that they joined forces at Rational!.

A lot of Ivar Jacobsens's The Object Advantage apparently can be traced in Rational's UML.

What would be the set of the most powerful contemporary books in Software development in the mid-2000's ?

It would have been great if Scott Ambler had given his recommendation.
