Subject outline

This unit aims to introduce students to the concept of advanced object oriented conceptual modelling for software engineering and data modelling. It uses as its fundamental conceptual data model, the object-oriented model. Unified Modelling Language (UML) notation is adopted for graphical representation. Several software development processes, including the Rational Unified Process (RUP) and Extreme Programming (XP), are presented and critically examined. Object Constraint Language (OCL) is presented as well as its uses in rigorous object-oriented data modelling.
