Organization and Special Features

The book has two parts .

Part I describes the process, its context, its history, its structure, and its software development lifecycle. It describes some of the key features that differentiate the Rational Unified Process from other software development processes:

  • Chapter 1: Software Development Best Practices

  • Chapter 2: The Rational Unified Process

  • Chapter 3: Static Structure: Process Description

  • Chapter 4: Dynamic Structure: Iterative Development

  • Chapter 5: An Architecture-Centric Process

  • Chapter 6: A Use-Case-Driven Process

Part II gives an overview of the various components of process, or disciplines. There is one chapter for each discipline.

  • Chapter 7: The Project Management Discipline

  • Chapter 8: The Business Modeling Discipline

  • Chapter 9: The Requirements Discipline

  • Chapter 10: The Analysis and Design Discipline

  • Chapter 11: The Implementation Discipline

  • Chapter 12: The Test Discipline

  • Chapter 13: The Configuration and Change Management Discipline

  • Chapter 14: The Environment Discipline

  • Chapter 15: The Deployment Discipline

  • Chapter 16: Typical Iteration Plans

  • Chapter 17: Implementing the Rational Unified Process

Most discipline chapters are organized into six sections:

  • Purpose of the discipline

  • Definitions and key concepts

  • Roles and artifacts

  • A typical workflow: an overview of the activities

  • Tool support

  • Summary

Two appendixes summarize all the roles of the process and artifacts (the work products of the process) that are introduced in Chapters 7 through 15. A list of acronyms and glossary of common terms are provided, as is an annotated bibliography.
