Hi guys, i have joined a large team working on developing a futures trading system in Java and have been instructed to learn UML. I already have 'Applying UML and Patterns' but was looking for another good book to teach me from the basics about UML especially from a Java point of view (i have never used UML before)..
I have looked in the bunkhouse and read the reviews but was looking for any other opinions that members of this forum might have in using these books in a business environment, from the horses mouth so to speak..
Also i have been advised to download Togethersoft's Together UML software, is this generally one of the best on the market or are there others which would help me to learn about it a bit more.
Thanks in advance
Sam
Doh.. I just looked at a post just under mine that was asking the same thing, sorry for the repetition (although any advice is still appreciated)

UML Distilled is a very popular little handbook suitable for an introduction to UML. Published by Addison Wesley Longman - may be in the 3rd edition by now.

You might want to take a look at http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?UmlIsForPeople. In fact, a whiteboard might be the best tool you can find - for learning and for applying UML, seriously.

I was browsing at Barnes & Noble last night and flipped through Scott Ambler's "Agile Modeling" book. There was mention of what Ilja just pointed out. This book might be a good source for tips on practical applications.

I think the easiest way to learn UML is to use a UML tool- like TogetherJ etc
