SYNCHRONIZATION ISSUES IN UML MODELS

Marco Costa, Alberto Rodrigues da Silva

Abstract

Information systems have been changing regarding not only technologies but also notations and methodologies till now. As the complexity of the implemented systems is growing steadily, the need for ways of systematically develop applications increase. A multitude of tools appear to help in the development process. Tools are supporting and generating a large number of artefacts but development teams still have a difficult task: how to manage the coherence of that information in a context of highly dynamic changes. We discuss some important questions regarding synchronization, not only traceability, namely how to develop a fully customizable and extensible application in this field, which will instantiate a new class of applications.
