UML 1.0 vs UML 2.0 

Hi,

Re: UML 1.0 vs UML 2.0 

Ba Jr.,

It does not really matter which UML you use, as long as your user understands the deliverables. Most BAs use UML Activity diagrams or BPMN diagrams to map process. Usecases are now part of UML 2.0 (I think). State diagrams help with the initial analysis of complex objects etc; Class diagrams for the domain models etc.

Before you start, have a quick read of the ICONIX process, so that you can context UML x.0. see http://www.cdf.utoronto.ca/~csc407h/summer/lectures/week2-iconix.pdf 

warm regards,
K

Even though I had books on how to write requirements documents, had received individual mentoring on putting together use cases, and had a trus...
