This is an overview about this book...
The Object Primer is a straightforward, easy-to-understand introduction to agile software development (ASD) using object-oriented (OO) and relational database technologies. It covers the fundamental concepts of ASD, OO, and FLOOT, describing how to take an Agile Model Driven Development (AMDD) approach to requirements, analysis, and design techniques applying the diagrams of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) 2 as well as other leading-edge modeling techniques. The Object Primer goes further to show you how to take a Test-Driven Development (TDD) to development using Java. During the 1990s, OO superceded the structured paradigm as the primary technology paradigm for software development. Now during the 2000s ASD is superceding traditional, prescriptive approaches to software development. While OO and ASD are often used to develop complex systems, learning them does not need to be complicated. This book is different than many other introductory books about these topics�it is written from the point of view of a real-world developer, someone who has lived through the difficulty of learning these concepts.
