"Executable UML"'s premise is that systems should be designed in a machine-readable way, and that code generation can be left to "model compilers" that take that design and produce the system's executables. The lead author, Stephen Mellor, has spent a great deal of time developing a 'profile' of UML that supports this notion. To prove that it's not just handwaving, the book uses a running example of a bookstore system, and provides the model sources for the bookstore on the book's web site.
Interesting idea... hard to tell if it works. Requested a copy of the tool the book's example uses, but it's been a month, and I haven't heard anything.

The book was a fairly easy read. I don't know if I can recommend it without seeing at least an example work, though. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0201748045, Paperback)

Using Executable UML (xUML), developers can build UML models that can not only be unambiguously interpreted by human readers, but can be tested and validated through actual execution, and ultimately translated directly and completely to target code. This technology offers immense potential for accelerating development projects, enhancing reliability, and reducing cost. In this book, two of the field's leading experts introduce every facet of xUML. The authors introduce Executable UML's goals, premises, and features; then drill down to explain its key elements. Along the way, readers will discover exactly how to use xUML to create software systems that can be tested even before they are coded, enabling far greater reliability at significantly lower expense. For all developers, analysts, and project managers seeking to improve software reliability, time-to-market, and value. This book will be especially valuable to real-time programmers, and to thousands of programmers who have used Shlaer-Mellor methodologies.
