This will be the subject of the next set of notes.

The traditional systems development approach is sometimes referred to as the waterfall method. Views can be in any form, but are usually graphical and sometimes tabular with supporting text.

As mentioned above, things that we’d represent as associative objects on entity-relationship diagrams are generally represented as classes on class diagrams. Over the past 12 years there have numerous objecg about different approaches to object analysis bit they all contain these common elements.

New material includes updated terminology; finding lasses and objects; defining attributes; defining services; object-oriented analysis and CASE; moving to object-oriented design. Grady Booch has included in his methodology a requirements analysis that is similar to a traditional requirements analysis, as well as a domain analysis phase.

This tends not to be the case with onject systems or, at least, it shouldn’t be the case, if the system has been anzlysis specified and designed ; instead, classes will tend to send messages to and receive message from a relatively small set of others. A list all system behaviors – A list of all verbs within the process names such as Prepare order ajalysis report, generate invoices, etc.

This would require a change to the initial requirements document, which would, in turn, cascade to analysis, design, and so on.

Object-oriented analysis – Peter Coad, Edward Yourdon – Google Books

The Rumbaugh object model is very much like an entity relationship diagram objject that there are now behaviors in the diagram and class hierarchies. This Oracle documentation was created as a support and Oracle training reference for use by our DBA performance tuning consulting professionals.

The data management component – This design step identifies the classes needed for yordon access methods. This definition might be unhelpful Unlike the traditional systems analysis where user requirements are gathered and then specifications are put on the requirements and users are then asked to sign off on the analyzis, the object methodologies use a more iterative process where the requirements and specifications are reviewed repeatedly and the users are heavily involved.


End-users are notorious for changing their minds or identifying some feature that they forgot to identify. Unfortunately system development seldom fits this kind of structured approach.

CPSC Coad and Yourdon’s Object-Oriented Analysis

However, a name is certainly allowed and might give a reader a better idea of what the connection is supposed to represent ; when a name is included, it is written on the class diagram near just above, or just below the line that represents the same instance connection. A description of the contracts in the system – A objeect is an agreement between two objects, such that one object obuect invoke the services of the other. This would be a useful analytical approach for a project I am currently working on it is a rather large problem domain.

New material includes updated terminology; finding lasses and objects; defining attributes; defining services; object-oriented analysis and CASE; moving In order to ensure that the design is clear readable, and easily understoodCoad and Yourdon recommend. A subject is shown on their diagrams by a closed curve that encloses all the classes in it. Remote Emergency Support provided by Coa.

However, there are differences between attributes of classes and attributes of entities, that reflect the differences between classes and entities mentioned above, as well as the ones that follow. The standard says that “only standardized and well-established i. The steps of system design are: For example, there is a part of Javasoft’s online tutorial that describes its components and how to use them. A message connection on a class diagram is a directed connection drawn using an arrow from one class on the diagram to other, that points in the direction of some message can be sent between the classes, when the system is operating.

When possible, draw the generalization as centered above a row of its specializations, as is shown here.

Components of a Class Diagram

This material was briefly covered during lectures on March 14, ; this page describes Coad and Yourdon’s method – particularly, the design evaluation criteria it provides – in more detail analtsis in the lecture. Instance connections on class diagrams are extremely similar to binary two-way relationships on entity-relationship diagrams: Yourdon Press- Computers – pages. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. A list of the associate the primary behaviors services with each object – Each object will have behaviors which uniquely belong to the object.


Object technology has many different methodologies to help analyze and design computer systems. Yourdoj and Yourdon’s subjects are also given simple names, that are intended to describe the subsystem that each subject represents.

The Rumbaugh methodology has its primary strength in object analysis but it also does an excellent job with object design. The Shlaer-Mellor method Shlaer-Mellor methodology has its primary strength in system design and is considered somewhat weak on analysis. Coad and Yourdon don’t believe it’s necessary to assign names to instance connections, unless there are multiple connections between the same pair of classes.

In addition, Booch defines the dynamics of classes in a fashion very similar to the Rumbaugh method, as well as an analysis of the dynamics of object instances, where he describes how an object may change state. Search BC Oracle Sites. Following analysis, Coad and Yourdon define four parts that make up the design part of their methodology. Object-oriented analysis starts with a traditional structured specification, and adds the following information: For example, a class diagram for Version Four of the Student Information System would probably include the following classes and instance connections, to show that a grade is something that is assigned to a student and to a section of a course, that each grade object is connected to exactly one student, while each student object can have zero or more grades connected to it, and that each grade object is also connected to exactly one course section, while each course section object can have zero or more grades for students connected to it.
