UML Class Diagram Notation

UML Class Diagram Notation

When it comes to system construction, a class diagram is the most widely used diagram. UML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application. Such a diagram would illustrate the object-oriented view of a system . The object orientation of a system is indicated by a class diagram. It describes the structure of a system by showing the general issues,classes of a system, attributes, operations, interfaces, inheritance, and the relationships between them. Read more

The vector stencils library "UML class diagrams" contains 38 symbols for the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"... classes are represented with boxes which contain three parts:
(1) The top part contains the name of the class. It is printed in Bold, centered and the first letter capitalized.
(2) The middle part contains the attributes of the class. They are left aligned and the first letter is lower case.
(3) The bottom part gives the methods or operations the class can take or undertake. They are also left aligned and the first letter is lower case. ...
To indicate a classifier scope for a member, its name must be underlined. ...
An association can be named, and the ends of an association can be adorned with role names, ownership indicators, multiplicity, visibility, and other properties. ...
Aggregation ... is graphically represented as a hollow diamond shape on the containing class end of the tree with a single line that connects the contained class to the containing class.
... graphical representation of a composition relationship is a filled diamond shape on the containing class end of the tree of lines that connect contained class(es) to the containing class.
... graphical representation of a Generalization is a hollow triangle shape on the superclass end of the line (or tree of lines) that connects it to one or more subtypes.
... graphical representation of a Realization is a hollow triangle shape on the interface end of the dashed line (or tree of lines) that connects it to one or more implementers. A plain arrow head is used on the interface end of the dashed line that connects it to its users.
Multiplicity ... representation of an association is a line with an optional arrowhead indicating the role of the object(s) in the relationship, and an optional notation at each end indicating the multiplicity of instances of that entity (the number of objects that participate in the association).
Entity classes ... are drawn as circles with a short line attached to the bottom of the circle. Alternatively, they can be drawn as normal classes with the «entity» stereotype notation above the class name." [Class diagram. Wikipedia]

"In software engineering, a class diagram in the Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a type of static structure diagram that describes the structure of a system by showing the system's classes, their attributes, operations (or methods), and the relationships among objects. ...
The class diagram is the main building block of object oriented modelling. It is used both for general conceptual modelling of the systematics of the application, and for detailed modelling translating the models into programming code. Class diagrams can also be used for data modeling. The classes in a class diagram represent both the main objects, interactions in the application and the classes to be programmed." [Class diagram.

Data Flow Diagrams

The information system manages the flow of data introduced into the system. To graphically represent and document the flow of data through some information system is used a Data Flow Diagram (DFD). DFD is a way to visualize the flow of data or data processing, to clearly demonstrate what type of data or information is transferred, where they come from and where are sent. It lets to create an overview of the system, to depict the major steps, and effectively model the processes. DFDs are helpful for analyzing and modifying the business systems. Traditionally are used two notations for DFDs creation - Yourdon-Coad and Gane-Sarson. ConceptDraw PRO software offers a special Data Flow Diagrams solution from Software Development area, which enables to quickly and simply create professional Data Flow Diagrams including the data storage, data flows, external entities, functional transforms, control transforms and signals. Use the offered templates, samples and extensive range of libraries to design your own Data Flow Diagrams in minutes. Read more

"A package diagram in the Unified Modeling Language depicts the dependencies between the packages that make up a model. ...
Elements.
(1) Package: It is a general purpose mechanism for organizing model elements & diagrams into groups. It provides an encapsulated namespace within which all the names must be unique. It is used to group semantically related elements. It is a namespace as well as an element that can be contained in other package's namespaces.
(2) Class: It is a representation of objects, that reflects their structure and behavior within the system. It is a template from which actually running instances are created. Classes usually describe logical structure of system.
(3) Interface: It is a specification of behavior. Implementing classes of an interface class are required to support the behavior.
(4) Object: It is an instance of class. It is often used in analysis to represent numerous artifacts and items that exist.
(5) Table: It is a stereotyped class." [Package diagram. Wikipedia]
