Example text

The value in prioritizing the capabilities of a system is that software is fluid. Let me illustrate what I mean by example. It is possible to create, save, open, and print a text document with both Notepad and Microsoft Word, but the difference in the number of lines of code and the number of features between these two programs is tremendous. By prioritizing uses, we often have the opportunity to juggle features, budget, and schedule advantageously. Suppose, for example, that my primary objectives are to be able to create, save, open, and print a text document.

Prioritizing the capabilities means that I could elect to focus on primary uses—create, save, open, and print—but defer supporting HTML and rich text.

Hence process and language were divided. There are many books on process. I don't think one process represents the best fit for all projects, but perhaps one of the more flexible processes is the Rational Unified Process. My focus in this book is on the UML, not on any particular process. I will be suggesting the kinds of models to create and what they tell you, but I encourage you to explore development processes for yourself. Consider exploring the Rational Unified Process (RUP), the Agile process, extreme Programming (XP), and even Microsoft's Services Oriented Architecture (SOA).
