MACIASZEK, L.A. and LIONG, B.L (2005): Practical Software Engineering. A Case Study Approach, Harlow England, Addison-Wesley, 864p. (ISBN 0-321-20465-4).
The website contains links, available from the top menu bar, from the "breadcrumb" area located below the top menu bar, and from the left-hand and right-hand menu panels.
The top menu bar items are available from each page of this website to allow quick access to one of the four main areas of this website:
- about the book (containing basic information, table of contents, and sample chapters)
- Reader's Area (containing lecture slides, Java and database code, UML model files, assignments/projects, etc.)
- password-protected Instructor's Area
The right-hand menu panel allows hierarchical down-ward or side navigation to other website pages. It also conveniently repeats the top menu bar items.
The sequences of red-coloured links in the breadcrumb area visualize the navigation path from the root of the website (Main) to the currently viewed page. These links can be used to return to pages, which are higher up in the website on the path to the current page.
All links explained above serve exclusively the purpose of navigating through pages of PSE website. All such navigation is conducted withing the same Interner browser window. By contrast, the left-hand menu panel provides links to other websites of potential interest to visitors of website. Accordingly, these links launch separate Internet browser window. The left-hand menu panel is only available from the PSE root page and the pages just one-level below the root.
The About the Book link provides introductory information for first-time visitors to this website. It contains information extracted from the book (including a sample chapter) and is, therefore, of little interest to the owners of the book.
Readers who are using the book for university study or for professional education will be most interested in the Reader's Area link.
Instructors who selected the book for university courses are provided with a wealth of supporting material in the Instructor's Area link. Access to this link is password-protected.
