Enhancing UML models: a domain analysis approach Academic Article uri icon


  • UML has been largely adopted as a standard modeling ,language. The emergence ,of UML from different modeling ,languages ,that refer to various ,system ,aspects causes a wide variety of completeness,and correctness problems in UML models. Several methods,have been proposed for dealing with correctness issues, mainly providing internal consistency rules but ignoring correctness and completeness,with respect to the system requirements and the domain constraints. In this paper, we propose addressing both completeness and correctness problems of UML models ,by adopting ,a domain ,analysis approach ,called Application-based DOmain Modeling (ADOM). We present experimental resultsfrom,our study which checks the quality of application models when utilizing ADOM on UML. The results advocate that the availability of the domain,model helps achieve more complete models without reducing the comprehension,of these models. Keywords: UML, Domain Analysis, Model Correctness, Model Completeness
