Written by one of the best known object-oriented practitioners in the business, Process Patterns is based on proven, real-world techniques. Scott Ambler shows readers how to deliver successfully large-scale applications using object technology, and he carefully describes how one develops applications that are truly easy to maintain and to enhance. He shows how such projects can be maintained, and points out what is necessary to ensure that one's development efforts are of the best quality. The object-oriented software process (OOSP) that he presents is geared toward medium to large-size organizations who need to develop software internally to support their main line of business. Developers and project managers who have just taken their first OO development course will find this book essential. It describes the only OOSP to take the true needs of development into consideration, including cross-project maintenance operations, and support issues. This book uses the Unified Modeling Language (UML).
