Abstract:

The widespread presence of the Unified Modeling Language UML has led practitioners to try to apply it when documenting software architectures. While early versions of UML have been adequate for documenting many kinds of architectural views, they have fallen somewhat short, particularly for documenting component and connector views. UML 2.0 has added a number of new constructs and modified some existing ones to address these problems. In this report, the authors explore how changes in this version affect UMLs suitability as a notation for documenting component and connector views.
