Modeling and Development--More Tightly Integrated Than Ever Rational XDE cures many of the headaches of application modeling and development by bringing the two processes closer together than ever before. Mastering Rational XDE shows you how to get maximum relief using this powerful tool, which lets you model within your preferred IDE, generate code automatically, and maintain tight synchronization between model and code at all times. One of the keys that unlocks this enormous power is the large example project that runs through Mastering Rational XDE, divided into a series of exercises that teach you to create use case and analysis models, move from analysis to design, create databases, publish and report models, and apply and create patterns. By working through this book, you'll be able to develop sophisticated, flexible object-oriented applications that are efficient to maintain and upgrade. Coverage includes: * Understanding the role of XDE in the software development life cycle * Understanding how XDE works with your IDE * Creating an analysis model * Creating a design model * Creating a data model * Generating code, including classes, attributes, operations, relationships, and components * Keeping your code and model in sync * Publishing a model and generating reports * Using Gang-of-Four patterns in an XDE model * Creating and using a Reusable Asset Specification (RAS) * Creating and using your own patternsThese exercises build a timekeeping system, which is introduced in Chapter 3. ... at a fictitious hotel chain, StayHcre, Inc.
