Books or articles about non functional requirements

Hi everyone,

I want to learn more about non functional requirements, such as availability, scalability, performance, security.

All books and articles which I read, I only find the description of these requirements, but I don't find details or examples of them, or even, how to achieve them.

For example, I always read that one performance requirement could be the screens of the system responding in, at most, 3 seconds. But just that. I have never found how to achieve this 3 seconds.

Could someone suggest me some books or articles where I can learn more about it?

Thanks a lot!

I had attended Sun's recommended training for SCEA and had received the course ware (SL-425 & SL-500).

SL-425 has good amount of details on this topic.
I agree. Here's the link:
