ZAPATA, CARLOS M. e ARANGO I, FERNANDO. AN ENVIRONMENT FOR AUTOMATED UML DIAGRAMS OBTAINING FROM A CONTROLLED LANGUAGE. Dyna rev.fac.nac.minas [online]. 2007, vol.74, n.153, pp. 223-236. ISSN 0012-7353.
Conventional Software Engineering tools have supported analysts in helping them for both model drawing and editing, but with little help in model conceptualization. Currently, there is a trend for automated conceptual schema generation and, despite of great advances, theres still work on few diagrams, and even there are some problems especially related to consistency of the obtained diagrams. In this paper, we define an environment for automatically obtaining of UML 2.0 diagrams, including a controlled language-UN-Lencep-, a Knowledge representation language-Preconceptual Schemas-, and a set of rules for UML diagrams translation; this environment has been implemented in a CASE tool-UNC-Diagramador-and a case study example has been provided. This implementation supports analysts in both model conceptualization, and consistency improvement, due to the fact that resulting models are elaborated from the same text in controlled language.
