Streamlined Modeling seeks to improve software development by promoting
understanding and clarity in analysis, design, and implementation. We welcome your feedback
and participation in this effort.
Our first book covers analysis and business object implementation. Later works,
to be previewed here, will cover design and implementation.
Modeling pares down object modeling to just the bare essentials necessary to
model business domains, business rules, and business services.
- Object think and object selection principles.
- Twelve all-encompassing "collaboration patterns" for modeling real-world
- Five kinds of business rules, three types of services, and six categories of properties.
- Rigorous methods for discovering, organizing, and implementing business rules around
The book makes use of extensive examples drawn from real-world applications, and includes a
complete case study from analysis to implementation and coded in Java and Squeak.
Questions from thoughtful readers keep coming in, and we've posted some of the
