    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t...f=sr_1_9/002-4567655-4060021?v=glance&s=books

    By Doug Rosenberg, Mark Collins-Cope and Matt Stephens
    Publisher: Apress L.P.
    A pragmatic subset of agile UML techniques, illustrated by example.

    Available now from Amazon.com (review feedback: 5-stars to date)
    * Defines a core subset of agile practices and separates agile fact
    from fiction
    * Describes how to get from use cases to source code using a minimal
    object modelling process
    * Defines extensions to the core ICONIX Process, including: persona
    analysis/interaction design; and how to combine object modelling with
    Test Driven Development (TDD)

    This book demonstrates how to apply a minimal, use case driven object
    modelling process in an agile software project. It's full of
    practical advice on how to avoid common agile pitfalls. The book
    defines a core agile subset - so those of you who want to "get
    agile" need not spend years learning to do it. Instead, you can
    simply read this book and apply the core subset of techniques.

    The book follows a real-life .NET/C# project from inception and UML
    modelling, to working code-through several iterations. You can then
    go on-line to compare the finished product with the initial set of use
    cases.

    The book also introduces some extensions to the core ICONIX Process,
    including how to combine Test-Driven Development (TDD) with up-front
    design to get the best out of both approaches (with examples using Java
    and JUnit); and using persona analysis to drive the project's goals
    and reduce requirements churn.

    Who should read this book?
    * If you're a project manager and want to introduce some agile
    practices into your project, this book provides a useful starting point
    * If you're a programmer or architect, this book provides the technical
    details you need to get agile
    * If you're wondering how to combine the latest agile techniques with
    more traditional up-front requirements analysis + design to increase
    the likelihood of your project succeeding, then this book is for you!
