ACM Queue - UML Fever: Diagnosis and Recovery: Sidebars from Scott Ambler and Craig Larman: "My observation is that lean and effective organizations conduct upward of 90 percent of all modeling as sketches on paper or whiteboards, with only a few using sophisticated software-based modeling tools. The reality is that the value is typically in the modeling effort itself, not in the model. Why is it that so few software modeling books or academic papers seem to focus on sketching in terms of recommended best practices? Shouldn't we help developers to get better at what effective modelers actually do in practice, instead of trying to inflict the questionable visions of tool vendors and/or inane academic theories on them? "

I certainly hope that the examples in this article were to some degree for SHOCK VALUE!!! It appears that there is still a huge amount of smoke and mirrors going on in the software development space! Incidentally in my organization we are dumping a multi million dollar J2EE project and rebuilding the application in Oracle forms technology! Oops let me be careful and seal my lips!
