Towards the Integration of UML- and textual Use Case Modeling

By: Veit Hoffmann, Horst Lichter, Alexander Nyßen, Andreas Walter

Abstract

According to the UML, a use case represents a variety of scenarios that can result from the interaction between a system and its environment. Its description has to cover all possible scenarios. Since it is hard and often impossible to name and describe each of them in isolation, a use case is often described in an incremental fashion: One scenario is described completely and explicitly, and all other scenarios are described implicitly in terms of their differences to the first one.
