Applying Use Cases: A Practical Guide (Addison-Wesley Object Technology Series)
After showing the goals of the use cases, discussion returns to the descriptive techniques that help to meet those goals. That includes confirmation that the use cases are correct and complete, or complete enough for a given phase of the software life cycle. The rest of the book deals more with managing that life cycle, emphasizing the place of use cases at each step.
Although helpful, this book suffers one weakness that seems inherent in software process books: I'm sure that a novice will get some value from this text. I'm equally sure that use cases' full value can only be learned by seeing an experienced practitioner adapting them to a specific project's constraints, history, goals, and team culture. Still, this gives the interested developer or project manager plenty to get started with.
This book provides an easy-to-digest introduction to use case development.
Frequently bought together
I wish it had been available when I first began employing use cases. The consistent example of the order entry system -- neither too complex nor too simple -- was helpful in understanding and applying new concepts. However, the fictional example of a team of people meeting periodically to go through the use case exercises was amateurish at its best and painful at its worst. The editors could have cut it entirely, with no loss in readability or understanding.

Good dialog is very difficult for even skilled novelists. In my humble opinion, it would have been far more effective had the author pushed the unintentially comical dialog into a full, campy diversion from the topic at hand. Despite this literary faux paxs presumably provided by the second-billed Jason Winters , Geri Schneider writes with clarity and anticipates questions well.
