The Unified Modeling Language
The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is part of a development to merge (unify) the concepts in the Booch, Objectory and OMT methods (Jacobson et al., 1998; Rational, 2001). The method is still under development (and has taken a low profile recently); however, the notation underlying this method is nearing completion. This notation is now the focus of the current work of Booch, Rumbaugh and Jacobson and is receiving a great deal of interest. Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Oracle and Texas Instruments have all endorsed the UML.
