You might find Introduction to the Diagrams of UML 2.0 to be of interest.

In my opinion, "UML for Java Programmers" by Robert C. Martin is a good starter.

I'm partial to Martin Fowler's UML Distilled, now in its third edition.

Heading: UML Representation of Object-Oriented Concepts

"
Recognize the UML representation of classes, (including attributes and operations, abstract classes, and interfaces), the UML representation of inheritance (both implementation and interface), and the UML representation of class member visibility modifiers (-/private and +/public).
Recognize the UML representation of class associations, compositions, association multiplicity indicators, and association navigation indicators.

Hello,
Do the books UML Distilled and UML for Java Programmers contain plenty of exercises and examples?
I have had a look at their contents at amazon but found nothing.
If not, which other books do you recommend that satisfy these requirements?
Rocco.

"UML for Java Programmers" has lots of examples. In fact the second half of the book is filled with two case studies.
