Oksana Nikiforova, Ludmila Kozacenko, Dace Ahilcenoka
2013 Applied Computer Systems  
In this task an ability of automatic generation of the UML sequence diagram becomes one of the most important activities.  ...  The twohemisphere model contains enough information to define operations to perform by classes and therefore is investigated in this paper in the context of the UML sequence diagram generation.  ...  for Development of Intelligent Applied Software and Computer System Architecture".  ...

Definition of the Criteria for Layout of the UML Use Case Diagrams

Olga Filipova, Oksana Nikiforova
2019 Applied Computer Systems  
Manual layout of diagrams is a time-consuming activity, which can also be ineffective, so in this paper the application of UML use case automatic layout is reviewed.  ...  The paper also examines the requirements of use case diagrams and placement criteria, which will serve as a basis for the creation of an automatic use case diagram layout algorithm.  ...  Authors of [19] proposed an algorithm based on a topology-form-metric approach for class diagram automatic layout.  ...

Drawing activity diagrams

Martin Siebenhaller, Michael Kaufmann
2006 Proceedings of the 2006 ACM symposium on Software visualization - SoftVis '06  
We propose a new approach tailored to the needs of activity diagrams which combines the advantages of two fundamental layout concepts called "Sugiyama's approach" [Sugiyama et al. 1981] and "topology-shape-metrics  ...  Unfortunately, previous approaches for automatic layout support fail or are just insufficient to capture the complexity of the related requirements.  ...  Topology-Shape-Metrics Approach The most effective concept for orthogonal layouts of undirected graph structures is the topology-shape-metrics (TSM-) approach.  ...

UML Diagram Layouting: the State of the Art

Arthur Galapov, Oksana Nikiforova
2011 Scientific Journal of Riga Technical University Computer Sciences  
UML Diagram Layouting: the State of the Art The usual aim of the modern computer-aided system modelling is to improve a connection between software model and code components.  ...  Therefore, the task of a diagram import/export becomes very important during software development. Layouting of diagrams after importation from another tool and application plays the main role.  ...  Eiglsperger, Kaufmann M and Siebenhaller in [7] proposed an algorithm based on the topology-shape-metrics approach for automatic layout of class diagrams, which works well for class diagrams with well  ...

On the Impact of Layout Quality to Understanding UML Diagrams: Size Matters [chapter]

Harald Störrle
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Practical experience suggests that usage and understanding of UML diagrams is greatly affected by the quality of their layout.  ...  We utilize these results to derive a recommendation on diagram sizes that are optimal for model understanding.  ...  As a pragmatic approach to defining weights uniformly, we use the approach pursued in [30] , and provide a simple classification of the elements of UML diagrams into lines, shapes, and labels, and assign  ...

On the impact of size to the understanding of UML diagrams

size as a relevant factor, for a range of diagram types and layouts.  ...  Method: We define three alternative, plausible metrics. Since they are all highly correlated on a large sample of UML diagrams, we opt for the simplest one.  ...  Eichelberger [6] also discusses these criteria at length, and shows how they can be used in the automatic layout of UML class diagrams.  ...

A new approach for visualizing UML class diagrams

Carsten Gutwenger, Michael Jünger, Karsten Klein, Joachim Kupke, Sebastian Leipert, Petra Mutzel
2003 Proceedings of the 2003 ACM symposium on Software visualization - SoftVis '03  
We suggest a new approach for visualizing UML class diagrams leading to a balanced mixture of the following aesthetic criteria: Crossing minimization, bend minimization, uniform direction within each class  ...  UML diagrams have become increasingly important in the engineering and reengineering processes for software systems.  ...  Both examples in Figures 17 and 18 have been drawn with the GoVisual Plug-In for Microsoft Visio. Figure 18 shows the example displayed within the Visio environment.  ...

Mathias Frisch, Raimund Dachselt
2010 Proceedings of the 5th international symposium on Software visualization - SOFTVIS '10  
In this paper we contribute the application of off-screen visualization techniques to the domain of node-link diagrams in general and to UML class diagrams in particular.  ...  The basic idea of the approach is to give a contextual view of all nodes which are clipped from the current viewport.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This work was funded by the "Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft" from funds of the Claussen-Simon-Endowment.  ...
