Views in UML are like looking at a software project from different angles. They help people see and understand different parts of the project, making it easier to design, build, and use the software. There are five types of views in UML.
1. Use Case View:
The Use Case View helps you understand how people will use your software. It’s like creating a “To-Do List” from the user’s perspective.
UML Diagram: Use Case Diagrams
2. Design View:
Think of the Design View as the architectural plan for your software. It shows how different parts of your software will work together, just like blueprints for a building.
UML Diagram: Class Diagrams, Object Diagrams, Component Diagrams
3. Process View:
The Process View is like a detailed flowchart that explains how your software works when it’s running. It shows the step-by-step processes your software follows.
UML Diagram: Activity Diagrams, State Machine Diagrams
4. Implementation View:
In this view, programmers write the actual code for your software. It’s like turning the design into real, working software.
UML Diagram: While UML doesn’t have a specific diagram for this view, but Class diagrams can be used as the template for code writing.
5. Deployment View:
Deployment View is all about setting up your software in the real world. It shows how your software is placed on different computers and how they communicate with each other.
