  • Presents a comprehensive tutorial on the design and implementation of a block diagram-based software application that may be used for engineering modeling and simulation
  • Teaches how to build a demonstration software application, and all of the chapters in the book build upon each other to result in a large, real-world project
  • Ties many facets of C, C++, and Visual C++, together to work as a whole
  • Provides the tools and knowledge needed for developers to implement and extend the application in the book for their own purposes
  • Includes open source computer code, available on the author's website


Software Application Development: A Visual C++, MFC, and STL Tutorial provides a detailed account of the software development process using Visual C++, MFC, and STL. It covers everything from the design to the implementation of all software modules, resulting in a demonstration application prototype which may be used to efficiently represent mathematical equations, perform interactive and intuitive model-building, and conduct control engineering experiments.

All computer code is included, allowing developers to extend and reuse the software modules for their own project work. The book’s tutorial-like approach empowers students and practitioners with the knowledge and skills required to perform disciplined, quality, real-world software engineering.
