This tool mentor assumes that a Use-Case Model has already been created in accordance with the Model Structure Guidelines for RSx.
The following steps are performed in this tool mentor:
Additional Tool Information
After finding the actors, record your results as follows:
Open the Use-Case Model.
Navigate to a package where actors are to be captured. See Model Structure Guidelines for RSx.
Create a diagram to capture actors, selecting use-case diagram for the diagram type. See Adding Use-Case Diagrams to
Models in the online Help.
Add actors to the diagram.
Annotate each actor with a brief description. See Documenting Model Elements.
For more information,
refer to Modeling the
Behavior of a System by Using Use-Case Diagrams in the online Help.
After finding use cases, record your results as follows:
Navigate to a package in which use cases are to be captured. See Model Structure Guidelines for RSx.
Create a use-case diagram to capture use cases. See Creating Use-Case Diagrams in the online Help.
Add use cases to the diagram. See Adding Use-Case Diagrams to Models.
Provide a brief description and the outlined flow of events. This can be initially annotated on the model element.
Model Elements.) Alternatively, you can use the RUP-provided template for Artifact: Use Case and attach it to the use case in the model.
See Linking Model
Elements to External Files.
Describe the interaction between actors and use cases by following these steps:
Add previously created actors to the use-case diagram containing the use cases. See Adding Diagram Elements to
Add associations between actors and use cases. See Specifying Relationships in UML Diagrams.
Optionally, describe the association. See Documenting Model Elements.
Optionally, add multiplicity of a role. See Specifying the Multiplicity Property.
Organize actors and use cases in packages.
Refer to Organizing
Model Elements in Packages in the online Help.
For the purposes of this tool mentor, it is assumed that diagrams have been created as actors and use cases are
identified. See earlier steps for guidance on use-case diagramming.
The tool provides Use-Case Model reports. It might be helpful to publish the model to HTML format. Also note that
diagrams can be copied to Microsoft Word and other programs.
For more information, refer to Publishing Models.
Reports (see previous step) and published models can be useful for reviewing the model.
For more information, refer to Publishing Models and to the Publishing a Model to Web tutorial.
