This webcast will examine the role of a software architect in an agile development environment. In this webcast, you will learn an alternate approach to modeling that can complement the existing design process of organizations without any requirement for drastic changes through Lightweight Modeling, which can help with some of the issues organizations are facing by providing an intermediary description of their design before moving into more complex modeling or directly into code, and at the same time flexibility and collaboration that lightweight modeling brings in with minimum overhead and learning curve.
Jim Conallen is a software engineer on the IBM Rational Model Driven Development Strategy team, where he is actively involved in applying the Object Management Group's (OMG) Model Driven Architecture (MDA) initiative to IBM Rational model tooling. Jim is also active in the area of asset-based development and the Reusable Asset Specification (RAS).
He authored two editions of Building Web Applications with UML, the first focusing on Microsoft's Active Server Pages and the latest on J2EE technologies. He is a frequent conference speaker and article writer, whose expertise includes Web application development. He developed the Web Application Extension (WAE) for Unified Modeling Language (UML), a UML extension that lets developers model Web-centric architectures with UML at appropriate levels of abstraction and detail. This work served as the basis for IBM Rational Rose® and Rational® XDETM Web modeling functionality.
Prior to joining Rational, Jim was an independent consultant, Peace Corps volunteer, and college instructor; he is now the father of three boys. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from Widener University in computer and software engineering.
