C++ How to Program (3rd Edition)

From the Inside Flap

Preface C++ How to Program: Third Edition
We performed an extensive review process on this Third Edition that led to thousands of polishing changes. We also completely updated the programs in the text to conform to the C++ standard’s use of namespaces.
The major new feature of this Third Edition is a complete, fully-implemented case study on object-oriented design using the Unified Modeling Language™ (UML). We felt that a commitment to larger-scale object-oriented design projects is something that has been lacking in introductory programming textbooks. This optional case study is highly recommend because it will considerably enhance the students’ experience in a first-year university programming sequence. This case study provides students with an opportunity to immerse themselves in a 1000+ line C++ program that was carefully scrutinized by a team of distinguished industry and academic reviewers.
In the previous editions of this book, we included special “Thinking About Objects” sections at the ends of Chapters 1 through 7. These sections walked the student through the steps needed to design the software simulator for an elevator system. We asked the student to complete these steps and to implement their design in C++. For C++ How to Program: Third Edition, we have completely remodeled this case study. At the ends of Chapters 1 through 7 and the end of Chapter 9, we use the “Thinking About Objects” sections to present a carefully paced introduction to object-oriented design using the UML. The UML is now the most widely used graphical representation scheme for modeling object-oriented systems. The UML is a complex, feature-rich graphical language. In our “Thinking About Objects” sections, we present a concise, simplified subset of these features. We then use this subset to guide the reader through a first design experience with the UML intended for the novice object-oriented designer/programmer. We present this case study in a fully solved format. This is not an exercise; rather, it is an end-to-end learning experience that concludes with a detailed walkthrough of the C++ code.
In each of the first five chapters we concentrate on the “conventional” methodology of structured programming, because the objects we will build will be composed, in part, of structured-program pieces. We then end each chapter with a “Thinking About Objects” section in which we present an introduction to object orientation using the Unified Modeling Language (UML). Our goal in these “Thinking About Objects” sections is to help students develop an object-oriented way of thinking, so they can immediately put to use the object-oriented programming concepts that they begin learning in Chapter 6. In the first of these sections at the end of Chapter 1, we introduce basic concepts (i.e., “object think”) and terminology (i.e., “object speak”). In the optional “Thinking About Objects” sections at the ends of Chapters 2 through 5 we consider more substantial issues as we attack a challenging problem with the techniques of object-oriented design (OOD). We analyze a typical problem statement that requires a system to be built, determine the objects needed to implement that system, determine the attributes the objects will need to have, determine the behaviors these objects will need to exhibit and specify how the objects will need to interact with one another to meet the system requirements. We do all this even before we discuss how to write object-oriented C++ programs. In the “Thinking About Objects” sections at the ends of Chapters 6, 7 and 9, we discuss a C++ implementation of the object-oriented system we designed in the earlier chapters.
This case study is significantly larger than any other project attempted in the book. We feel that the student gains significant experience by following this complete design and implementation process. This project forced us to incorporate topics that we do not discuss in any other section of the book, including object interaction, an in-depth discussion of handles, the philosophy of using references vs. pointers and the use of forward declarations to avoid the circular include problem. This case study will help prepare students for the kinds of substantial projects encountered in industry.
“Thinking About Objects” Sections
In Chapter 2, we begin the first phase of an object-oriented design (OOD) for the elevator simulator—identifying the classes needed to implement the simulator. We also introduce the UML use case, class and object diagrams and the concepts of associations, multiplicity, composition, roles and links.
In Chapter 3, we determine many of the class attributes needed to implement the elevator simulator. We also introduce the UML statechart and activity diagrams and the concepts of events and actions as they relate to these diagrams.
In Chapter 4, we determine many of the operations (behaviors) of the classes in the elevator simulation. We also introduce the UML sequence diagram and the concept of messages sent between objects.
In Chapter 5, we determine many of the collaborations (interactions between objects in the system) needed to implement the elevator system and represent these collaborations using the UML collaboration diagram. We also include a bibliography and a list of Internet and World Wide Web resources that contain the UML 1.3 specifications and other reference materials, general resources, tutorials, FAQs, articles, whitepapers and software….
