I am looking for a book on Object modeling with UML.
I have no prior OOD experience. Can somebody recommend a book
that helps to transforms requirements to design ?

Thanks in advance,

Jaya

Keep in mind that UML is just a language - it doesn't help you much with coming up with the design, "just" with depicting it.

Having said that, I highly recommend "Agiles Software Development - Principles, Patterns and Practices" by Robert C. Martin. It discusses the basic OO principles that guide design decisions and shows in three case studies how to apply them.


The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

You're welcome. And of course that's "Agile", without the "s"... :roll:
