Unified Modeling Language (UML)

Unified Modeling Language (UML)
Getting Started with UML: The Unified Modeling Language™ - UML - is OMG's most-used specification, and the way the world models not only application structure, behavior, and architecture, but also business process and data structure. UML, along with the Meta Object Facility (MOF™), also provides a key foundation for OMG's Model-Driven Architecture®, which unifies every step of development and integration from business modeling, through architectural and application modeling, to development, deployment, maintenance, and evolution. OMG is a not-for-profit technology standards consortium; our members define and maintain the UML specification which we publish in the series of documents linked on this page for your free download. Software providers of every kind build tools that conform to these specifications. To model in UML, you'll have to obtain a compliant modeling tool from one of these providers and learn how to use it.

Unified Modeling Language - Wikipedia The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a general-purpose, developmental, modeling language in the field of software engineering that is intended to provide a standard way to visualize the design of a system.[1] The creation of UML was originally motivated by the desire to standardize the disparate notational systems and approaches to software design. It was developed by Grady Booch, Ivar Jacobson and James Rumbaugh at Rational Software in 1994–1995, with further development led by them through 1996.[1] In 1997, UML was adopted as a standard by the Object Management Group (OMG), and has been managed by this organization ever since. In 2005, UML was also published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as an approved ISO standard.[2] Since then the standard has been periodically revised to cover the latest revision of UML.[3]

Design Codes: UML Class Diagram: Association, Aggregation and Composition The UML Class diagram is used to visually describe the problem domain in terms of types of objects (classes) related to each other in different ways. There are 3 primary inter-object relationships: Association, Aggregation, and Composition. Using the right relationship line is important for placing implicit restrictions on the visibility and propagation of changes to the related classes, a matter which plays an important role in understanding and reducing system complexity. Association The most abstract way to describe static relationship between classes is using the Association link, which simply states that there is some kind of a link or a dependency between two classes or more. Weak Association A Little Bit of UML (for Just Enough Design) - a very special one-off charity training workshop to celebrate 10 years of Saturday August 17th, Bletchley Park. Tickets just 99. create UML modeling and diagrams UML models help you understand, discuss, and design software systems. Visual Studio Ultimate provides templates for five of the most frequently used UML diagrams: activity, class, component, sequence, and use case. In addition, you can create layer diagrams, which help you define the structure of your system. You need Visual Studio Ultimate to create UML models. UML modeling diagrams and layer diagrams can exist only inside a modeling project. Each modeling project contains a shared UML model and several UML diagrams.

UML For Business Analysts Skip to main content Real IRM Leading Enterprise Architecture Value™ UML modeling and code generation in Visual Studio 2010 This article provides an overview of UML modeling in Visual Studio 2010. Assuming that reader is already familiar with UML, it focuses on custom UML profiles - an extensibility mechanism that can be used to tailor UML models to a particular problem domain. Readers will see an example of such a profile, which extends UML Class Diagrams for database modeling. Finally, the article shows how code can be generated from UML models using T4 text templates.

UML Tutorial - UML Unified Modelling Language - Sparx Systems The Unified Modeling Language (UML) has quickly become the de-facto standard for building Object-Oriented software. This tutorial provides a technical overview of the 13 UML diagrams supported by Enterprise Architect. UML 2 semantics are explained in detail in the new UML 2.0 tutorial. Firstly...
