UML

UML Reloaded

UML, an acronym to Unified Modelling Language, is defined as the graphical notations of the real system which allows both design and viability of a system. The requirements elicited from business owners are sometime too complex to explain to the stakeholders and thus to summarize those requirements and abstract the essential details UML is widely used. It helps in visualizing the problem and in turn the solutions with better approach and reduction of cost and rework. In short UML is a mean to visualize, specify, construct and document software systems.

Graphical modeling languages have been around in the software industry for a long time. Some articles show that this technique is being used for more than 15 years now. The UML is a relatively open standard, controlled by the Object Management Group (OMG), an open consortium of companies. The OMG was formed to build standards that supported interoperability, specifically the interoperability of object-oriented systems. The OMG is perhaps best known for the CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) standards. UML is so wide and vast that nobody, not even the creators of the UML, understands or uses all of it. We all use a small subset of the UML.
