Automated requirements measurement tool (ARM)

Altova UModel

Altova UModel is a UML tool for software modeling and application development.

Intro to Altova Umodel Creating UML use case diagrams


SketchUML is a TabletPC based e-Learning tool that incorporates a minimalistic interface to resemble naturalistic pen-and-paper design approaches and combine their simplicity with the advantages of computer-aided design. This is meant to facilitate the learning of the UML syntax. As many CAD tools are very complex in nature, these products inhibit the learning of the concepts of UML, as it is necessary to learn the CAD tool in parallel. A simplistic, naturalistic interface will therefore enhance the learning effect and decrease the learning curve of UML.

Requirements use case tool (RUT)

  • Test site:
  • Installation instruction: RUT was developed in 2003 as a Web-based application. It needs a Web-server, PHP and MySQL. When trying to install these on the current Web server, you will face many troubles. Many obsolete functions are used in both MySQL and PHP which should be modified to work.
  • MySQL
    1. Default DATE value: 0000-00-00 is not accepted in MySQL 5. Change it to the valid fixed date.
    2. PASSWORD() output length is much longer than the old version. Change it to OLD_PASSWORD().
  • PHP
    1. session_register() and session_unregister() are not used anymore in PHP5. Change them to use the direct reference of $_SESSION["variable"].
    2. Default DATE value: 0000-00-00 is not accepted in MySQL 5. Thus change the code in usecase_edit.php like NOW().
