This book discusses how model-based approaches can improve the daily practice of software professionals. This is known as Model-Driven Software Engineering (MDSE) or, simply, Model-Driven Engineering (MDE). MDSE practices have proved to increase efficiency and effectiveness in software development, as demonstrated by various quantitative and qualitative studies. MDSE adoption in the software industry is foreseen to grow exponentially in the near future, e.g., due to the convergence of software development and business analysis. The aim of this book is to provide you with an agile and flexible tool to introduce you to the MDSE world, thus allowing you to quickly understand its basic principles and techniques and to choose the right set of MDSE instruments for your needs so that you can start to benefit from MDSE right away. The book is organized into two main parts. The first part discusses the foundations of MDSE in terms of basic concepts (i.e., models and transformations), driving principles, application scenarios, and current standards, like the well-known MDA initiative proposed by OMG (Object Management Group) as well as the practices on how to integrate MDSE in existing development processes. The second part deals with the technical aspects of MDSE, spanning from the basics on when and how to build a domain-specific modeling language, to the description of Model-to-Text and Model-to-Model transformations, and the tools that support the management of MDSE projects. The second edition of the book features: a set of completely new topics, including: full example of the creation of a new modeling language (IFML), discussion of modeling issues and approaches in specific domains, like business process modeling, user interaction modeling, and enterprise architecture complete revision of examples, figures, and text, for improving readability, understandability, and coherence better formulation of definitions, dependencies between concepts and ideas addition of a complete index of book content In addition to the contents of the book, more resources are provided on the book's website http://www.mdse-book.com, including the examples presented in the book.
The Systems Modeling Language (SysML) extends UML with powerful systems engineering capabilities for modeling a wider spectrum of systems and capturing all aspects of a system’s design. SysML Distilled is the first clear, concise guide for everyone who wants to start creating effective SysML models. (Drawing on his pioneering experience at Lockheed Martin and NASA, Lenny Delligatti illuminates SysML’s core components and provides practical advice to help you create good models and good designs. Delligatti begins with an easy-to-understand overview of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and an explanation of how SysML enables effective system specification, analysis, design, optimization, verification, and validation. Next, he shows how to use all nine types of SysML diagrams, even if you have no previous experience with modeling languages. A case study running through the text demonstrates the use of SysML in modeling a complex, real-world sociotechnical system. Modeled after Martin Fowler’s classic UML Distilled, Delligatti’s indispensable guide quickly teaches you what you need to know to get started and helps you deepen your knowledge incrementally as the need arises. Like SysML itself, the book is method independent and is designed to support whatever processes, procedures, and tools you already use. Coverage Includes Why SysML was created and the business case for using it Quickly putting SysML to practical use What to know before you start a SysML modeling project Essential concepts that apply to all SysML diagrams SysML diagram elements and relationships Diagramming block definitions, internal structures, use cases, activities, interactions, state machines, constraints, requirements, and packages Using allocations to define mappings among elements across a model SysML notation tables, version changes, and sources for more information

A Practical Guide to SysML: The Systems Modeling Language is a comprehensive guide to SysML for systems and software engineers. It provides an advanced and practical resource for modeling systems with SysML. The source describes the modeling language and offers information about employing SysML in transitioning an organization or project to model-based systems engineering. The book also presents various examples to help readers understand the OMG Systems Modeling Professional (OCSMP) Certification Program. The text is organized into four parts. The first part provides an overview of systems engineering. It explains the model-based approach by comparing it with the document-based approach and providing the modeling principles. The overview of SYsML is also discussed. The second part of the book covers a comprehensive description of the language. It discusses the main concepts of model organization, parametrics, blocks, use cases, interactions, requirements, allocations, and profiles. The third part presents examples that illustrate how SysML supports different model-based procedures. The last part discusses how to transition and deploy SysML into an organization or project. It explains the integration of SysML into a systems development environment. Furthermore, it describes the category of data that are exchanged between a SysML tool and other types of tools, and the types of exchange mechanisms that can be used. It also covers the criteria that must be considered when selecting a SysML. Software and systems engineers, programmers, IT practitioners, experts, and non-experts will find this book useful. *The authoritative guide for understanding and applying SysML *Authored by the foremost experts on the language *Language description, examples, and quick reference guide included

Object-Oriented Analysis and Design for Information Systems clearly explains real object-oriented programming in practice. Expert author Raul Sidnei Wazlawick explains concepts such as object responsibility, visibility and the real need for delegation in detail. The object-oriented code generated by using these concepts in a systematic way is concise, organized and reusable. The patterns and solutions presented in this book are based in research and industrial applications. You will come away with clarity regarding processes and use cases and a clear understand of how to expand a use case. Wazlawick clearly explains clearly how to build meaningful sequence diagrams. Object-Oriented Analysis and Design for Information Systems illustrates how and why building a class model is not just placing classes into a diagram. You will learn the necessary organizational patterns so that your software architecture will be maintainable. Learn how to build better class models, which are more maintainable and understandable. Write use cases in a more efficient and standardized way, using more effective and less complex diagrams. Build true object-oriented code with division of responsibility and delegation.

This book presents original contributions on the theories and practices of emerging Internet, data and web technologies and their applicability in businesses, engineering and academia. The Internet has become the most proliferative platform for emerging large-scale computing paradigms. Among them, data and web technologies are two most prominent paradigms, and manifest in a variety of forms such as data centers, cloud computing, mobile cloud, mobile web services and so on. Together, these technologies form a digital ecosystem based on the data cycle, from capturing to processing, analysis and visualization. The investigation of various research and development issues in this digital ecosystem is made all the more important by the ever-increasing needs of real-life applications, which involve storing and processing large amounts of data. As a key feature, the book addresses advances in the life-cycle exploitation of data generated from the digital ecosystem, and data technologies that create value for businesses, moving toward a collective intelligence approach. Given its scope, the book offers a valuable reference guide for researchers, software developers, practitioners and students interested in the field of data and web technologies.
