The Only Official RUP® Certification Prep Guide and Compact RUP Reference

The IBM® Rational Unified Process® has become the de facto industry-standard process for large-scale enterprise software development. The IBM Certified Solution Designer - IBM Rational Unified Process V7.0 certification provides a powerful way for solutions developers to demonstrate their proficiency with RUP.

The first and only official RUP certification guide, this book fully reflects the latest versions of the Rational Unified Process and of the IBM RUP exam.

This book covers every facet of RUP usage. It has been carefully organized to help you prepare for your exam quickly and efficiently--and to provide a handy, compact reference you can rely on for years to come.

  • Core RUP concepts, the new RUP process architecture, and key principles of business-driven development
  • RUP’s architecture-centric approach to iterative development: practical issues and scenarios
  • Patterns for successful RUP project implementation–and “anti-patterns” to avoid
