Unified Modeling Language


What Is the UML ?
The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a language for
• Specifying
• Visualizing
• Constructing
• Documenting

Rational Unified Process
  • The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a language for specifying, visualizing, constructing, and documenting the artifacts of a software-intensive system
  • A software development process defines Who is doing What, When and How in building a software product
  • The Rational Unified Process has four phases : Inception, Elaboration, Construction and Transition
  • Each phase ends at a major milestone and contains one or more iterations
  • An iteration is a distinct sequence of activities with an established plan and evaluation criteria, resulting in an executable release

The Unified Modeling Language
Booch and Rumbaugh started working towards a Unified Modeling Language (UML) in 1994 under the auspices of Rational Inc. UML only offers a model notation, not a methodology for how to do modeling. UML is used by the development method Objectory (Jacobson at Rational). UML was proposed by Rational Inc. and by Hewlett-Packard as a standard for object-oriented analysis and design and was adopted by the OMG. Vendors modify their CASE tools to make them consistent with UML.
