UML Class Diagram Constructor

UML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used both for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application, and for detailed modeling translating the models into programming code. It describes the structure of a system by showing the:

  • classes of a system,
  • attributes,
  • operations,
  • relationships between them.

The Rapid UML Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM includes the UML Class Diagram library that helps you to design the UML Class Diagram quick and easy. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from the library into your document to create the UML Class Diagram.

On the UML Class Diagram, Classes are represented as boxes that consist of name, attributes of the class, operations or methods, and responsibilities.

UML Class Diagram components

Pic 2. UML Class Diagram Components

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows you to set the following visibility markers that assign where and how will be available the class components: of a class member: Public (+), Private (-), Protected (#), Derived (/), Static (_), Package (~). The visibility marker must be placed before the name of class member.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows you to depict the associations (static relationships) between objects and classes on the Class Diagrams. The association that connects two classes is represented as:

  • Aggregation (“has a”) association – as line with empty diamond.
  • Composition (“owns a”) association – as line with filled diamond.
  • Generalization or Inheritance (“is a”) association – as line with empty triangle.
  • Realization association – as unbroken line with empty triangle.
  • Dependency association - as unbroken line with an open arrowhead.
  • Synchronous message association – as line with filled triangle.

The components with Private visibility (-) are not visible from outside. The Protected visibility (#) allows the components be accessible in any child class. The components with Public visibility (+) are visible for all other classes. The Derived (/) class inherits the properties of the base class. The Static (_) visibility is used at the encapsulation. The Package (~) visibility shows that the components are accessible to any class of this package.

UML Class Diagram Associations

Pic 4. UML Class Diagram Associations

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows to indicate the multiplicity of associations, i.e. the quantity of instances of one class that are linked to one instance of the other class. There are four notations:

  • 0..1 – no or one instance;
  • 1 – one instance;
  • 0..* – zero or more instances;
  • 1..* – one or more instances.

UML Deployment Diagram. Design Elements →

UML Deployment diagram describes the hardware used in system implementations and the execution environments and artifacts deployed on the hardware. ConceptDraw has 393 vector stencils in the 13 libraries that helps you to start using software for designing your own UML Diagrams. You can use the appropriate stencils of UML notation from UML Deployment library.UML Deployment Diagram. Design Elements *

UML Notation →

There are many ways to track the system in a critical situation. To model a system behavior, uml notation is widely used. Usually, an UML diagram consists of elements such as actor and a case. This diagram represents the structure of UML notations. Unified Modeling Language (UML) is used in software engineering to depict graphically the software modeling process. UM Language uses graphic notations for developing models of object-oriented systems. These notations displays requirements, sub-systems, logical and physical elements, etc. We created this diagram using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM reinforced with Rapid UML solution. It can be helpful for students on software engineering, when learning UML.UML Notation *

In software engineering, a UML Class Diagrams is a type of static structure diagram that is used both for general conceptual modeling of the systematics of the application, and for detailed modeling translating the models into programming code. Use ConceptDraw DIAGRAM with UML class diagram templates, samples and stencil library from Rapid UML solution to show the classes of system, their attributes, operations or methods, and the relationships among the classes.UML Class Diagrams.

Swim Lane Diagrams →

Job duties in small companies are usually spread randomly among workers, causing lots of problems and misunderstanding. One of the ways to restore order in business processing is to create a cross-functional flowchart with swim lanes that would represent every step in production system. Another advantage of using swim lanes flowchart is that it represents not only processes, but people responsible for them. Swim lane diagram is a kind of a process flow diagram. Its special feature is that it joins the features of process flow diagrams with organizational charts. Thus, a swim lane diagram display a participant of the business process in a conjunction with general flow of the business system. A swim lane diagram is looks similar to a swimming pool's lanes. Lanes can be horizontal and vertical. The lanes are pointed out relatively to resource name, which is assigned on implementation of the given part of the business process. ConceptDraw Business Process Mapping solution delivers the ability to design develop swim lanes flowcharts using the vector graphic objects of Swim Lanes library.Swim Lane Diagrams *

Venn Diagram Examples for Problem Solving. Computer Science. Chomsky Hierarchy →

A Venn diagram, sometimes referred to as a set diagram, is a diagramming style used to show all the possible logical relations between a finite amount of sets. In mathematical terms, a set is a collection of distinct objects gathered together into a group, which can then itself be termed as a single object. Venn diagrams represent these objects on a page as circles or ellipses, and their placement in relation to each other describes the relationships between them. The Venn diagram example below visualizes the the class of language inclusions described by the Chomsky hierarchy.Venn Diagram Examples for Problem Solving. <br> Computer Science. Chomsky Hierarchy *
