Software engineering : a practitioner's approach

“For almost three decades, Roger Pressman’s “Software Engineering: A Practitioner’s Approach” has been the world’s leading textbook in software engineering. The new seventh edition represents a major restructuring and update of previous editions, solidifying the book’s position as the most comprehensive guide to this important subject. The seventh edition of “Software Engineering: A Practitioner’s Approach” has been designed to consolidate and restructure the content introduced over the past two editions of the book. The chapter structure will return to a more linear presentation of software engineering topics with a direct emphasis on the major activities that are part of a generic software process. Content of this book will focus on widely used software engineering methods and will de-emphasize or completely eliminate discussion of secondary methods, tools and techniques. The intent is to provide a more targeted, prescriptive, and focused approach, while attempting to maintain SEPA’s reputation as a comprehensive guide to software engineering. The book will be organized in five parts – Process, Modeling, Quality Management, Project Management, and Advanced Topics. The chapter count will remain at 32, unchanged from the sixth edition. However, eight new chapters have been developed and another six chapters have undergone major or moderate revisions. The remaining chapters have undergone minor edits/updates.

Java programming fundamentals : problem solving through object oriented analysis and design

While Java texts are plentiful, it’s difficult to find one that takes a real-world approach, and encourages novice programmers to build on their Java skills through practical exercise. Written by an expert with 19 experience teaching computer programming, “Java Programming Fundamentals” presents object-oriented programming by employing examples taken from everyday life. The book provides a foundation in object-oriented design principles and UML notation; describes common pitfalls and good programming practices; furnishes supplemental links, documents, and programs on its companion website; uses day-to-day life examples to introduce every object-oriented and programming concept; includes an extensive stand-alone chapter on GUI and event programming; and contains numerous examples, self-check questions, quick review material and an extensive list of both programming and non-programming exercises.The text presents object-oriented design and programming principles in a completely integrated and incremental fashion. It correlates each concept to a real-world application example and then introduces the corresponding Java language construct. The approach continues throughout the book, in that every concept is first introduced through practical examples, followed by short programming tutorials. To round out its coverage, the book provides several case studies, which illustrate various design issues and demonstrate the usefulness of techniques presented throughout the book. Using its one-of-a-kind approach, “Java Programming Fundamentals” demonstrates the object-oriented design techniques required to simulate actual real-life situations without compromising study of traditional programming constructs and structures.
