On UML2.0's Abandonment of the Actors-Call-Use-Cases Conjecture

By: Sadahiro Isoda


The current UML's use-case specification has a lot of problems and even nonsense. All these problems are due to three fundamental defects originated in OOSE. These are the illusionally “actors call use cases” conjecture, mixing-up designer's simulation with real execution and poor understanding of OO. The problems can be easily solved by recognizing anew what a use case is and then modeling it guided by plain OO technology.
