UML (Unified Modeling Language)
Note: Many topics at this site are reduced versions of the text in "The Encyclopedia of Networking and Telecommunications." Search results will not be as extensive as a search of the book's CD-ROM.
According to the Meta Data Coalition, UML is a language for modeling information systems and software artifacts. The UML can be used to visualize, specify, construct, and document knowledge about software-intensive systems and their purpose at an abstract level. The goals of the UML are to unify the most prominent modeling methodologies into a ready-to-use expressive modeling language that is simple and extensible. The modeling language was developed by Rational Software Corporation and partners and was adopted by the OMG in November 1997. The UML continues to evolve though this standards body.
The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is the modeling standard for specifying and representing metadata in the MDC OIM. Based on the formal representation of the metadata specification in the UML, it is possible to generate automatically all the necessary deliverables to deploy implementations of the specifications in tools or repositories.
