"A compelling vision for application architecture, combined withprecise instructions for implementing that vision. It is certain toraise the bar for the application development community."
-David A. Taylor, Author of Business Engineering with ObjectTechnology
When David Taylor introduced the concept of Convergent Engineeringin 1995, there was no telling how far this innovative approachwould go. With this book, Richard Hubert follows up on Taylor'svision by providing a comprehensive guide to modern architecturalstyle and its implementation using Model Driven Architecture(MDA).
You'll discover the value IT architectural style brings todevelopment projects and you'll learn how Convergent Architecture(CA) leverages MDA to resolve many of today's complex IT-relatedproblems at the source.
This step-by-step guide walks you through the process of designingand implementing both corporate architectural styles and integratedsoftware systems using the CA/MDA approach. The concepts,techniques, and tools in this book have been tried and tested inpractice and are the result of hands-on experience in diverseenvironments. You'll discover how CA optimizes UML, the RationalUnified Process, and J2EE/EJB to achieve new levels of lastingarchitectural integrity.
In addition, this informative book shows:
How to build corporate architectures using the latesttechnologies, like EJB and XML, and design standards and tools,such as UML, Rational Rose, and ArcStyler
How the integrated architectural tool suite, known as anArchitectural IDE, supports Model Driven Architecturestandards
* Each step of the model-driven development process from theinitial business design to the generation, deployment, and test ofcomplete J2EE/EJB infrastructures.
The companion Web site includes hands-on tutorials using J2EE/EJBlinks to related sites, and updates to the Convergent Architectureand its tool environment.
