Use CasesSite offer The design patterns approach has become popular because it allows software practitioners to address recurring problems by applying a catalogue of proven solutions. Use cases have gained widespread popularity because they allow a system designer to determine how software will ultimately be "used" by the system's customer/end-user before the process of coding even begins.

For all of their benefit and widespread acceptance, use cases are still misunderstood by a great number of professionals who could benefit from their effective deployment. Use Cases marries the best of design patterns and use cases. The authors carefully describe how each pattern works, what problems it is intended to solve, and the consequences associated with using it. All patterns are supported with detailed examples and platform-independent class models that demonstrate how they may be realized.
