From UML Specification into Implementation Using Object Mapping
Computer and Information Science
In information systems, a system is analyzed using a modeling tool. Analysis is an important phase prior to implementation in order to obtain the correct requirements of the system. During the requirements phase, the software requirements specification (SRS) is used to specify the system requirements. Then, this requirements specification is used to implement the system. The requirements specification can be represented using either a structure approach or an object-oriented approach. A UML
... approach. A UML (Unified Modeling Language) specification is a well-known for representation of requirements specification in an object-oriented approach. In this paper, we present one case study and discuss how mapping from UML specification into implementation is done. The case study does not require advanced programming skills. However, it does require familiarity in creating and instantiating classes, object-oriented programming with inheritance, data structure, file processing and control loop. For the case study, UML specification is used in requirements phase and Borland C++ is used in implementation phase. Based on the case study, it shows that the proposed approach improved the understanding of mapping from UML specification into implementation.
