Generation of UML2 Use Cases from MEASUR’s Ontology Charts: A MDA Approach
Pp. 67-76 (10)
Georgios Tsaramirsis and Mohammad Yamin
MEASUR’s ontology charts are the product of MEASUR’s semantic analysis; a
requirements analysis method used to capture the ontological dependencies of an
information system. These charts can be transformed to databases and to database schemas,
class diagrams, component architecture diagrams and prototype systems. This paper shows
how MEASUR’s ontology charts can be transformed to UML use case diagrams so that
developers can get a quick view of the system’s interaction with the users. The paper
utilizes the Model Driven Architecture approach and uses simplified versions of the
ontology chart and uses case Meta models. For simplicity and clarity reasons the
transformation is described in English rather than a transformation language.
