UML Deployment Diagram Example - ATM System UML diagrams

The UML Deployment Diagram is used for visualization of elements and components of a program, that exist at the stage of its execution. It contains graphical representations of processors, devices, processes, and relationships between them. The UML Deployment Diagram allows to determine the distribution of system components on its physical nodes, to show the physical connections between all system nodes at the stage of realization, to identify the system bottlenecks and reconfigure its topology to achieve the required performance. The UML Deployment diagram is typically developed jointly by systems analysts, network engineers and system engineers. ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software with Rapid UML solution from Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park perfectly suits for designing different types of UML diagrams, including the UML Deployment Diagrams. There are included a lot of design elements, templates, examples and samples, among them an example of work of ATM (Automated Teller Machine) banking system. Read more

UML Diagram

The accepted open standard that is used in software engineering and system design, when modeling object-oriented systems and business processes is known as Unified Modeling Language (UML). UML was created for definition, visualization, design and documentation software systems. It isn't a programming language, but on the base of UML model can be generated code. UML uses generic set of graphic notations for creation an abstract model of the system called UML-model. The UML notation lets visually represent requirements, subsystems, structural and behavioral patterns, logical and physical elements, etc. UML defines 13 types of diagrams: Class (Package), Use Case, Sequence, Object, Collaboration, Component, Timing, Interaction Overview, State Machine, Composite Structure, Activity, and Deployment. All these types of UML Diagrams can be fast and easy created with powerful ConceptDraw PRO software extended with special Rapid UML solution from Software Development area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

UML Diagram Types List

Two types of diagrams are used in UML: Structure Diagrams and Behavior Diagrams. Behavior Diagrams represent the processes proceeding in a modeled environment. Structure Diagrams represent the elements that compose the system. Read more
"A deployment diagram in the Unified Modeling Language models the physical deployment of artifacts on nodes. To describe a web site, for example, a deployment diagram would show what hardware components ("nodes") exist (e.g., a web server, an application server, and a database server), what software components ("artifacts") run on each node (e.g., web application, database), and how the different pieces are connected (e.g. JDBC, REST, RMI)."

The UML diagramming software allows you to draw the UML Diagrams in a few minutes. Read more

ConceptDraw PRO ER Diagram Tool

Entity-relationship model, also called ER-model, is the main tool of domain modeling on the stage of conceptual design. The modeling of domain data structures is based on the use of graphical tools - Entity-Relationship diagrams (ER-diagrams). The core concepts of ER-Diagram are entity, attribute and relationship. ER-diagram lets visually represent the entities, helps effectively document all properties of designed system and to detail the data storages. To represent the elements at ER-model are commonly used Chen’s notation and Crow’s foot notation, each has its pros and cons. The entity on ER-diagram is represented in the form of rectangle, which specifies its name. An attribute is a property of the entity and relationship is an interaction between the entities. The relationship between two entities is called binary, between more than two entities - ternary. Specific software, such as ConceptDraw PRO with Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution from ConceptDraw Solution Park is helpful for easy creation Entity-Relationship Diagrams. Read more
"Deployment diagram shows execution architecture of systems that represent the assignment (deployment) of software artifacts to deployment targets (usually nodes).
Nodes represent either hardware devices or software execution environments. They could be connected through communication paths to create network systems of arbitrary complexity. Artifacts represent concrete elements in the physical world that are the result of a development process and are deployed on nodes.
Note, that components were directly deployed to nodes in UML 1.x deployment diagrams. In UML 2.x artifacts are deployed to nodes, and artifacts could manifest (implement) components. So components are now deployed to nodes indirectly through artifacts." [uml-diagrams.org/deployment-diagrams.html]

"A deployment diagram in the Unified Modeling Language models the physical deployment of artifacts on nodes. To describe a web site, for example, a deployment diagram would show what hardware components ("nodes") exist (e.g., a web server, an application server, and a database server), what software components ("artifacts") run on each node (e.g., web application, database), and how the different pieces are connected (e.g. JDBC, REST, RMI).
The nodes appear as boxes, and the artifacts allocated to each node appear as rectangles within the boxes. Nodes may have subnodes, which appear as nested boxes. A single node in a deployment diagram may conceptually represent multiple physical nodes, such as a cluster of database servers.
There are two types of Nodes:
1. Device Node.
2. Execution Environment Node.
Device nodes are physical computing resources with processing memory and services to execute software, such as typical computers or mobile phones. An execution environment node (EEN) is a software computing resource that runs within an outer node and which itself provides a service to host and execute other executable software elements."

UML Notation

Unified Modeling Language (UML) is an open standard, the language of graphic description used for modeling objects in a field of software development and software engineering. It was created for definition, specification, visualization, designing and documenting software systems, as a unification of three object-oriented technologies Booch, OMT and OOSE, and uses the defined graphic notation for creating the visual models of object-oriented software systems. Description of UML consists of two parts, interactive and supplementing each other: UML semantics, which represents a certain metamodel, defines the abstract syntax and semantics of terms of object modeling with UML, and UML notation that is a graphic notation for visual representation of UML semantics. The powerful tools of the Rapid UML solution included to ConceptDraw Solution Park make the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software the best for easy applying the UML notation when creating the visual models of object-oriented software systems and designing different kinds of UML diagrams.

"Component diagram shows components, provided and required interfaces, ports, and relationships between them. This type of diagrams is used in Component-Based Development (CBD) to describe systems with Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA).
Component-based development is based on assumptions that previously constructed components could be reused and that components could be replaced by some other "equivalent" or "conformant" components, if needed.
The artifacts that implement component are intended to be capable of being deployed and re-deployed independently, for instance to update an existing system.
Components in UML could represent:
(1) logical components (e.g., business components, process components), and
(2) physical components (e.g., CORBA components, EJB components, COM+ and .NET components, WSDL components, etc.),
along with the artifacts that implement them and the nodes on which they are deployed and executed. It is anticipated that profiles based around components will be developed for specific component technologies and associated hardware and software environments."

Components of ER Diagram

Entity-Relationship model gives the possibility to visually describe a database using the components of ER Diagram, entity relationship stencils, relationship symbols, work flow shapes. ER-diagram lets represent the data or entities, attributes of these entities and relationships between them, using standardized Crow’s Foot notation icons or Chen’s notation icons. An entity is an object of the real world, it can exist independently and has the instances which differ in attribute values (properties). The attributes give an unambiguous (uniquely) identification for the instance and are called the primary key, this key can be composite and combine several attributes. ConceptDraw PRO is a professional software available with Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) solution from Software Development area that lets create ERDs for various database systems, using Crow’s Foot and Chen’s notations. It is invaluable tool for software engineers and developers, it supports ODBC-compatible databases (Oracle, MySQL, MS Access, MS SQL, InterBase, Firebird and others). Read more
