Fractal Patterns and Frameworks in UML — Towards UML 2.0?
Convention Ctr — Room 21
Desmond D’Souza, Kinetium

The UML can be used in a simple and consistent way to (a) use a “plug-in” framework approach from business and requirements patterns, through architecture and design patterns, to code, (b) treat “objects” and “use-cases” in a fractal manner, from business to code, with patterns of refinement, (c) specify and design components using “types” and “collaborations,” and (d) define component architectures based on an extensible “kit” of architectural modeling elements. This tutorial shows how UML pattern models can be used in a fractal approach to modeling and design.

Attendee Background: Attendees should be familiar with the UML.

Presenter: Desmond D’Souza is founder and president of Kinetium. He is co-author of the CATALYSIS Method (Addison Wesley, 1998), and a respected speaker internationally. He was previously senior vice president of component-based development at Platinum Technology and at Computer Associates. Kinetium provides client solutions that leverage shareable architectures for model-driven development and integration of systems, with a current focus on light-weight modeling architecture and methods.
