  • object-oriented concepts: class, object, event, structure, function, use patterns, component, component architecture
  • UML: class diagram, state chart diagram, sequence diagram, diagram for use patterns

Modelling with patterns:

  • patterns for modelling application and problem domains
  • patterns for composing components
  • specifically the patterns for analysis: object-descriptor, hierarchy, stepwise-role, materials, procedure
  • specifically the patterns for design: collection, layered, observer, client-server, model-view-controller

System development methods:
