The key aspects in a methodology are the concepts on which it is founded, a process or set of activities where the concepts are used and finally a notation. Coad/Yourdon Object-Oriented Analysis (OOA) and Booch Object-Oriented Design (OOD) are two systems development methodologies whose notations are . supported by CASE tools The methodologies have been applied in turn to a simpk . The Coad/Yourdon OOA Methodology uses one diagram on which five .

We will review four of the more popular systems: Generalization-Specialization Gen-Spec Relationships – Generalization-Specialization relationships refer to classes that inherit attributes and services from other classes. Unlike the traditional systems analysis where user requirements are gathered and then specifications are put on the requirements and users are then asked to sign off on the specifications, the object methodologies use a more iterative process where the requirements and specifications are reviewed repeatedly and the users are heavily involved.

Rumbaugh has three deliverables to the object analysis phase; the Object model, the Dynamic model, and the functional model. Booch’s methodology has its primary strength in the object system design. By waterfall, object analyst’s follow a logical progression through analysis, design, coding, testing, and maintenance.

Designing a human-computer interface is beyond the scope of Computer Science Unfortunately system development seldom fits this kind of structured approach. The problem domain component – This will define the classes that should be in the problem domain. Coad and Yourdon recommend the use of a CASE tool that would allow you to select which layers you wish to see, when viewing the model of the system that’s being developed. Coupling describes the level of interaction between or among components of an object-oriented yourvon, just as levels of coupling could be used to assess the interaction between components of a structured design.


One class can inherit from multiple superclasses. A behavior script for each object – A script describes each initiator, action, participant, and service. Inheritance Coupling refers to the connection between generalizations and specializations in a generalization-specialization structure.

Their methodology is based on a technique called “SOSAS”, which stands for the five steps that help make up the analysis methhodology of their methodology. Over the past 12 years there have numerous books about different approaches to object analysis bit they all contain these common elements.

Grady Booch has included in his methodology a requirements analysis that is similar to a yourdonn requirements analysis, as well as a domain analysis phase. In a section with this title, Coad and Yourdon introduce some new guidelines – and repeat some of the ones already given in the discussion of cohesion and coupling.

Each is described below. For example, there is a part of Javasoft’s online tutorial that describes its components and how to use them. They do note that it’s possible to reuse more than code, during object-oriented development: All legitimate Oracle experts publish their Oracle qualifications.

The information model contains objects, variables, and all the relationships between the objects, and is basically a data model for the system. Anyone considering using the services of an Oracle support expert should independently investigate their youtdon and experience, and not rely on advertisements and self-proclaimed expertise.

The second step is called “Objects”, where they identify the object classes and the class hierarchies. In order to ensure that the design is clear readable, and easily understoodCoad and Yourdon recommend.

As well, they recommend that services’ names be chosen to be as simple, and understandable, as possible. For example, suppose that our end-users are in the testing phase when they realize that they need an additional screen.

Booch’s object system design method has four parts, the logical structure design where the class hierarchies are defined, the physical structure diagram where the object methods are described. What are you looking for?


This Oracle documentation was created as a support and Oracle training reference for use by our DBA performance tuning consulting professionals. For traditional system analyst’s, the Rumbaugh’s methodology is the closest to the traditional approach to system analysis and design, and beginners will recognize familiar symbols and techniques.

The traditional systems development approach is sometimes referred to as the waterfall method.

The state model records the different states of objects and changes that can occur between the objects. These three models are similar to traditional system analysis, with the additions for the object model, including definitions of classes along with the classes variables and behaviors.

To understand and use these four methodologies would become difficult, if not impossible, for all projects.

Object-Oriented Analysis Models – Rumbaugh, Booch, Coad-Yourdon, and Shlaer-Mellor Method

Deeper structures can be difficult to understand and maintain, and can be a sign that inheritance is being misused. Some unique attributes of their DFD notation include:.

However, the Java user interface library is currently regarded as being well designed, and information about it is freely available.

The iterative process either adds new or more clearly defines existing properties, unlike the traditional approach that would re-hash specifications that are already done. Coad and Yourdon don’t give any advice that’s particularly specific about how to incorporate reusable components beyond agreeing that it’s a good idea to try methodklogy do so. In most cases these methodologies are very similar, but each has its own methodolofy to graphically represent the entities.
