Sparx Systems and ICONIX Software Engineering are pleased to announce a series of public classes entitled "Hands-on Enterprise Architect for Power Users" . These two-day events, to be taught in approximately 25 major cities within the US and internationally will be personally taught by ICONIX President and noted author Doug Rosenberg.

Students will develop an interactive internet (.Net) mapping application in C# within the Visual Studio environment using Enterprise Architect to take the example project from use cases and functional requirements all the way through sequence and class diagrams, and will generate C# code and test cases. Students will learn, hands-on, how to best leverage the seamless bi-directional integration between EA and Microsoft Visual Studio.

The example project (known as the "mapplet") is an interactive hotel-finder application, built with ArcGIS Server from ESRI, that is currently in production use and can be found on the VResorts.com travel website at http://smartmaps.vresorts.com , and is featured in the popular book "Agile Development with ICONIX Process" (Apress 2005) by Doug Rosenberg, Matt Stephens, and Mark Collins-Cope.

ICONIX Process is a minimalist, streamlined approach to use case driven UML modeling which uses a core subset of UML diagrams and techniques to provide thorough coverage of object-oriented analysis and design while avoiding analysis paralysis. ICONIX Process was first described in Mr. Rosenberg's first book "Use Case Driven Object Modeling" (Addison-Wesley 1999) which has currently sold over 30,000 copies, and has been released in both Japanese and Chinese as well as English. The Agile/ICONIX book updates the material for use in an agile development environment, and illustrates the process all the way down to code with the mapplet example.

Each student will receive a copy of both the "Use Case Driven Object Modeling", and "Agile Development with ICONIX Process" books along with a copy of the "Enterprise Architect for Power Users" multimedia tutorial.

Each student attending the workshops will recieve:

- A copy of Use Case Driven Object Modeling
- A copy of
- A copy of ICONIX's multimedia tutorial Mastering UML with Enterprise Architect and the ICONIX Process
- A copy of ICONIX's multimedia tutorial Enterprise Architect for Power Users
- A copy of Enterprise Architect Desktop Edition
- Course notebook and white papers
- Certificate for a discount off a 5 day ICONIX onsite JumpStart training workshop

Price: $2,500 Duration: 2 days

Detailed Class Agenda

Day 1:

Introduction to UML modeling using the ICONIX Process -- An overview of the object modeling activities to be performed and how they relate to the overall development lifecycle is presented.

Instructor led session and introduction of the Mapplet Example.

Identification of domain objects and use cases -- Development of an initial domain object model and identification of broad categories of usage scenarios. UML class diagrams are used to describe problem domain objects, the associations between them, along with the attributes and operations of each object. Use Case diagrams are used to capture business processes and usage scenarios.

Use Case Lab
(including Requirements Allocation and Traceability using Enterprise Architect)

The students are split into teams, with each team taking a package of use cases from the instructor-led work session. The teams then apply the techniques, in sequence, from the ICONIX Process, in a hands-on lab session. Students will learn how to allocate requirements to use cases and use EA's built-in traceability matrix.

Review of Use Cases

Day 2:

Robustness Analysis Lab -- Students will learn how to remove ambiguity from their use cases and link them to the class model.

Review of Robustness models

Sequence diagram lab -- Students will use the ICONIX Add-In to automatically generate skeleton sequence diagrams and test case diagrams from robustness diagrams. Students will learn how to do detailed object-oriented design on a per use case basis and how to allocate operations to classes from the sequence diagram.

Review of sequence diagrams and detailed static models

Code Generation, Test Case Generation, and Document Generation using Enterprise Architect.

Options for "round-trip" linkage between EA and programming environments such as Visual Studio using MDG Link.
