The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a language for specifying, visualizing, constructing, and documenting the artifacts of software systems. It provides rich notations for representing, analyzing architecture and behaviors of systems. Business Process Definition Languages such as XPDL, BPML, and BPEL4WS have been so far specified with different basis and goals. Among them, XPDL proposed by WfMC is considered as an XML-based language for process definition exchange. RFID application domain is an especial environment that requires precise measurement and precision calculation of real-world factor. Therefore in the paper new extended iconic stereotypes for better modeling RFID application in the UML Diagram are proposed, and the Implementation of a program called Stereotype Creator, which is able to create iconic stereotypes used in one of the most popular visual modeling tools for software development, Rational Rose, will be also proposed.
