This paper describes the features of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) in the software engineering community. The paper specifically describes the various uses of UML using object-oriented principles, such as drawing diagrams. Additionally, the paper shows UML's different features such as its ability to show objects and object relationships. The paper also includes a discussion of UML'd advantages as well as disadvantages. The paper concludes by enumerating on those who would find UML useful, such as engineers, architects and project managers.

From the Paper:

"For the reason that it is less formal it can be used at an early stage to structure and scrutinize the idea of an application domain earlier than the functional design is made. In addition, it can be used to complement SDLC in the area of object modeling. SDLC, for instance, does not support relations. The Object Models in UML can help in a way from the explanation of the informal needs to a formal functional design in SDLC. Also, it can capture a surprising array of processes and structures associated to business and software. A development can rely on UML as the customary language to communicate necessities, system design, deployment information, and code formation. The UML practitioner can capture ideas using visual tools, efficiently share these ideas with others, and effectively respond to change (Martin, 2002)."
