Figure 5-6: Hectors rough sketch of the objects the group is talking about, which he has made so that he has something to point to while telling the stories.

Chapter 6: Method, Process, and Models

Figure 6-1: In this Department of Motor Vehicles example ( patterned after Coad and Yourdon, 1991), data modeling rules lead the designer to place the fee attribute and therefore the calculate fee method in the LegalDocument class. This mandates the need for a case statement to handle fee calculations and couples LegalDocument to the entire Vehicle class hierarchy.
Figure 6-2: In this example, the addition of a single new attribute requires the creation of a new class, allowing some customers to buy on credit and therefore have a creditLimit attribute, for example.

Chapter 7: Discovery

Figure 7-1: A partial semantic net for a subsidized mortgage company.
Figure 7-2: A UML-style, top-level (analogous to a context diagram) partial use case.
Figure 7-3: In this system request table, the service requester is identified at the top. ( NewSystem is assumed to be the service provider.) Each line identifies the service requested : the message sent to NewSystem , the object returned as a result of that request, and notes for explanations if needed. Each line of the table constitutes a precondition/postcondition for a conversation.
Figure 7-4: In this conversation table, preconditions and postconditions are noted at the top of table. Each line of the table shows who is making a request, the nature of the request (message), the service provider, the object returned, and a comment if necessary. The conversational order is assumed to be top down.
Figure 7-5: This interaction diagram depicts the user -driven conversation required to fill in a form.
Figure 7-6: This interaction diagram depicts the alternative scenario for filling in an application.
Figure 7-7: Side 2 of the object cube for the Application and entryField objects contains a simple record of the description and stereotype obtained from the domain expert (user).
Figure 7-8: Sides 1 and 2 of the Application and entryField object cubes. "(Indented lines on side 1 of Class: Application are collaborators for the immediately preceeding responsibility.)"

Figure 8-7: Message protocol for the objects in the mortgage trust application (object cube side 5).
Figure 8-8: Contracts for all classes in both the ATC and mortgage trust application examples (object cube side 3).
Figure 8-9: Events for objects in the ATC and mortgage trust examples (object cube side 6). Note that most objects have no events. In some cases this is because they are inherited (MortgageApplication from Form), but usually it just reflects that most objects are not willing to share much state information, except for the almost universal "changed" state inherited from class Object).
