Bilal, My apologies. I thought I had, and while I found I had posted that quoted you, I didn't find my response. I must have mistyped something. Let me try this one again. We believe that the organizational principles are complete. In our paper in Computer in which we first widely published the model, we had a 6th principle that focused on risk, but we realized the management of risk was at the core of all the principles, and so we folded it back in. We've tested the model with multiple case studies, and by validating with experts such as Grady Booch and Robert Charette. However, if there is a principle that you think is missing, I would be interested to hear your thought on that. Dave

Originally posted by BILAL HAMEED: Dave you said that ur book is organized around 5 principles. does there exists any more principles .If yes can you mention them. Further more can you briefly describe as what these principles really are
While I'm not Carl, I'll take a stab at your other question. Obviously, architects and managers have much more at stake, and much more control over some of the issues I've mentioned. However, I think that folks who today are "just programmers" today need to understand organizational issues if they want to extend their influence beyond the code they are directly writing. Dave
Originally posted by G Vanin: Carl, after reading your review in the Bunkhouse Design Patterns UML and Refactoring, I would like to know if this book is useful just for programmer (I am not inside mentioned positions and prefer blowing up the current experience)?

ruilin, i dont think the book has anything on XML. As i am not the author... but the book is on Organizational Principles and Patterns i doubt it the book has it. Organizational Principles and Patterns is pretty big topics already. As the author has said... its focus on Principles not implement. Wilfried, i think this fourm is always alive and active!! hehehee sometimes!!
Good luck all on the book promotion and thanks David (author). Its good to have you here.!!! and thanks Javaranch
