In this paper we reflect the need for modelling in a systematic production of adaptive hypermedia applications. Proposed approach is based on the Unified Modelling Language (UML). State diagrams are used to model possible paths through hypertext. The user model expressed by a class diagram determines structural and behavioural features, which are used for specification of adaptations in states and transitions contained in state diagrams.
