The Unified Modelling Language, or the UML, is a graphical modelling language that provides us with a syntax for describing the major elements (called artifacts in the UML) of software systems. In this course, we will explore the main aspects of the UML, and describe how the UML can be applied to software development projects. Through to its core, UML leans towards object oriented software development, so in this course, we will also explore some of the important principles of object orientation. In this short chapter, weíll look at the origins of the UML, and weíll discuss the need for a common language in the software industry. Then we will start to look at how to exploit the UML on a software project.
