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.

Data Flow Diagram (DFD) →

In software engineering, it is important to understand how the system would cooperate with external sources, like data sources. To give this information a visual representation, data flow diagrams (DFD) were used for years. The entire system is usually divided into smaller ones, and all of them process data flows in appropriate ways. The visualizing business processes which engages the data transfer, is commonly preformed using DFDs (data flow diagrams). DFD is used to show the data flow processing and transformation. This DFD represents the electronic system of a customer purchase. It was created using Gane/Sarson notation. Data flow diagrams helps you to sort through and clarify transferring process making it available for analysis, and representation. ConceptDraw DFD solution introduces the vector library, containing the full set of icons from DFD notations.Data Flow Diagram (DFD) *

IDEF0 Flowchart Symbols →

Functional modeling allows to make complex business processes simple. One of the basic methods is IDEF0 and one of the most effective also. To create a business model, use flowchart symbols. The IDEF0 library, supplied with ConceptDraw IDEF0 Diagrams solution contains 18 IDEF0 basic notation symbols. All symbols are the vector graphic images what means, that one can customize their size preserving the stable quality. Another library of IDEF0 symbols can be find out in the the Business Process Diagrams solution, included to the Business Processes section of ConceptDraw Solution Park. These libraries composed from just vector objects and are totally compatible. You can apply the IDEF0 symbols from both libraries at your flowcharts, if needed.IDEF0 Flowchart Symbols *
