Many model-based approaches for user interface design start from a task model, for which the ConcurTaskTrees notation is frequently used. Despite this popularity and the importance that has been given to a close relation with UML, no relation has been established with UML state machines, which have been shown to be useful for the description of the behavior of user interfaces.
This article proposes to automate the process of structural and behavior analysis of component-oriented software fully specified in UML. The structural specification uses component, class and deployment diagrams, and the behavior specification, state machine diagram. The produced structural analysis tool analyzes a connection between pairs of components at a time. The produced behavioral analysis tool considers the behavior of the system as a whole, leading to behavioral specification of the application automatically from the machine state of each connected component. It is performed the convertion of the state machines of …
This short video introduces the UML state and activity diagrams. State diagrams are used to give an abstract description of the behavior of a system. This behavior is analyzed and represented in series of events, that could occur in one or more possible states.
