Maintating a Sesson Use Case

UML Forum Google Group - Sun, 03/31/2013 - 17:41
How do you represent a session maintanance in a use case diagram? An
example of what I am creating is this.

Suppose I am interfacing a social networking site, site A (which is a
system actor) and I am to create an application that would interface
its function such as the following:

Re: [UML Forum] how to model a system where we dont know the actors but only the permissions in UML

Responding to ali...

Usually not. Actors are external entities that interact with the
software being designed. They can be users, other software, or even
hardware. Typically they are generic based on broad classes of entities
in the problem space. Thus the problem space may regard system

Conflicting transition priority in state machine

UML Forum Google Group - Sun, 03/31/2013 - 17:41
Hello

In the 2.5 UML spec for state machine (it's also true in 2.4), the semantic of resolving conflicting transition is very precise, and enforces à priority of inner transitions over outer (see 2012-10-24 p328).

In the aim of implementing a subset of UML SM in a HDL language, I would better have chosen the exact opposite : outer over inner :(

Hello everyone,
I'm new in the uml world and i have to develop a warehouse management
software for my company. Here's the application description:
- The storekeeper must establish a purchase request and the system have to
print a copy of it with barecode.
- The purchasing manager should generate the order by scanning the barecode

I am no expert but there is no standard way to go about this, and UML is
probably not the right tool for this job.
I had a similar need for the tool I develop, and had similar ideas to what
you had, but I ended up taking a different approach (using "access"
constraints), but may just address it completely out of UML.

Actors are not agents but roles, so you don't have to know them.
You matrix approach seems OK providing the outcome of the consolidation are
not generic: actors are not classes so there is nothing to inherit.

how to model a system where we dont know the actors but only the permissions in UML

UML Forum Google Group - Sun, 03/31/2013 - 17:41
i have a scenario where we are developing a product .In the end how many
roles will be in the product and what permission each role will have is
something that changes product by product.
How can i model actors.
1) Is making every right/permission an actor the way to go. (This gets
complicated when i make sequence diagrammes)

Text Language - Coming along

miUML - open source executable UML - Tue, 10/09/2012 - 07:22

Well, it's taken a bit longer than expected with a number of distractions, but I'm making progress.  Hope to have the model population language parser up and running by the end of the month.

Text language

miUML - open source executable UML - Sat, 09/08/2012 - 16:45

I'm finally getting around to specifying the lean and mean text representation of miUML that I've always wanted.  It is possible to just write a command script to be processed by the interactive command line editor, but that's really only intended for making edits.  It's rather clunky when it comes to building whole models.  Now that I've settled on the Air Traffic Control (ATC) example as a test pattern, I can use that as an initial case to get things going.  If there aren't too many distractions this weekend, I hope to have something up and running on GitHub.

Next batch coming soon

miUML - open source executable UML - Thu, 08/30/2012 - 06:09

I'm creating a test pattern using the Air Traffic Control example on the Model Integration site.  That way, when you load everything you'll be able to run a script that will build a complete, albeit small, domain.  Also I'm adding functionality in the command line editor to cover more of the API.  Look for an update in the next couple of weeks.
