There are many books on the Unified Modeling Language (UML), mostly focusing on aspects of notation, but few that give a realistic sense of what it is like to develop a computer system using object oriented methods. This is an introductory book to information modeling with UML, for entry level university students.

It assumes no previous knowledge of UML on the part of the reader, and uses a case-based approach to present the material clearly and accessibly. It harmonizes the UML notation with a full software development approach, from project conception through to testing, deployment and enhancement. Ken Lunn, an experienced tutor, who also practices as a UML professional, has based the cases upon his own experience.

The book is accompanied by a Web site that provides solutions to end-of-chapter exercises, a password-protected tutor's file of further exercises with solutions, slides to accompany the book and other support material. This book covers the foundations of an undergraduate program in software engineering or information systems development, and is also appropriate for conversion masters' courses. It would be particularly suited to modules on systems development, or systems analysis and design.
