    Standard Definitions

  12. Artifact::="Anything that is created in the course of a project".
  13. artifact::=see above.
  14. DCD::diagram="Design Class Diagram", shows the classes that will be implemented in code.
  15. Deliverables::="A packet of artifacts that must be prepared by a deadline for review or distribution".
  16. Glossary::= See http://cse.csusb.edu/dick/cs375/uml.glossary.html.
  17. GoF::="Gang of Four", [ patterns.html#GoF ]
  18. GRASP::patterns="General Responsibility Assignment Software Patterns", a set of guidelines for designing objects and classes. They take a single event that the system must handle and determine a good class to carry it out. See [ patterns.html#GRASP -- General Responsibility Assignment Software Patterns ]
  19. Grades::= See http://cse.csusb.edu/dick/cs375/grading/.

  20. KISS::Folk_law="Keep It Simple, Stupid", in agile processes this means never drawing a diagram or preparing a document that doesn't provide value to the clients and stakeholders. In all processes it means never designing or coding what is not needed, see YAGNI.

  21. OO::shorthand="Object-Oriented".

  22. OOAD::="Object-Oriented Analysis and Design", See chapter 1 in text.
  23. patterns::="Documented families of problems and matching solutions", see Patterns.
  24. Patterns::= See http://cse.csusb.edu/dick/cs375/patterns.html.

  25. Process::="How to develop software".

  26. RJB::=The author of this document, RJB="Richard J Botting, Comp Sci and Engineering School, CSUSB".
  27. RUP::Process="Rational UP", a proprietary version of UP.

  28. SSD::="System Sequence Diagrams", see chapter 10 and [ 02DiceGameSSD.gif ] (example).

  29. TBA::="To Be Announced".

  30. UML::="Unified Modeling Language". [ Unified_Modeling_Language ]

  31. UP::="Unified Process", an iterative, risk-driven, and evolutionary way to develop OO software.

  32. YAGNI::XP="You Ain't Gonna Need It", an XP slogan that stops you planning and coding for things that are not yet needed. As a rule the future is not predictable enough to program a feature until the stakeholders actually need now. In this class it also means "It won't be on the final or in quizzes".

  33. XP::="Extreme Programming", the ultimate iterative, code-centric, user-involved process.
