This paper presents a technique to carry out performance analysis of UML specifications. We consider UML specifications composed of activity, sequence and deployment diagrams. Specifications are translated into the stochastic π-calculus, and quantitative analysis is then performed via the BioSpi tool. The approach is applied to a web-based Micro-business case study.
