Component-Based Design: A Complete Worked Example
Convention Ctr — Room 24
John Daniels, Syntropy Limited, UK

Much has been written about component-based design but most books and articles deal in generalizations and possibilities, rather than providing explicit and clear guidance. This tutorial will follow a small case study from requirements capture to code-ready specifications, and will set out the full client and server architectures needed to make it work. The modeling and specification techniques used will follow the UML, with the target technologies being EJB or COM+. A web-based UI is assumed. To complete the example, the tutorial will show how to implement the case study using EJB.

Attendee Background: The tutorial is aimed at modelers, system designers and architects. A working knowledge of UML is required, and some understanding of EJB or COM+ would be an advantage.

Presenter: John Daniels is a consultant at Syntropy Limited, providing help with system architectures and development processes to a number of large corporations. He was previously Application and Technical Architect for Bankers Trust in London, and before that Managing Director of pioneering consulting and training company Object Designers Limited. He has applied object technology in a range of industrial and commercial applications since 1985. He has given tutorials at many object technology conferences, has prepared and delivered many training courses, and has published extensively. He is co-author of Designing Object Systems (Prentice-Hall 1994) and UML Components (Addison-Wesley 2001).
