Implementing Systems Analysis / Systems Design Course Projects Using Rational Rose, the UML, and Visual Basic
There are numerous benefits derived from the use of visual modeling in object-oriented analysis and design. These include facilitating communication between clients and developers, managing complexity, promulgating a shared vision of the project's goals and objectives, and creating and maintaining an artifact upon which to enhance the current application or use to build future applications. Computer-aided software engineering tools incorporating the Unified Modeling Language, such as Rational Rose from Rational Software Corporation can automate and improve the development of object-oriented visual models. Rational Rose can be obtained without cost by qualifying educational institutions from Rational Software if they participate in the company's SEED program. The purpose of this paper is to review the utilization of the UML, Rational Rose , and Microsoft Visual Basic for project development in a systems analysis and systems design course sequence which has an object-oriented emphasis.
