About UML

The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a general-purpose modeling language in the field of software engineering, which is designed to provide a standard way to visualize the design of a system. In 1997 it was adopted as a standard by the Object Management Group (OMG), and has been managed by this organization ever since.。
