08:30 AM - 09:15 AM
This presentation will consist of three tests, each with several questions. The questions will be about the UML class model -- the UML model most pertinent to databases. Some questions will be multiple choice; others will be open ended.
After each test section, the speaker will give answers and take questions. The explanation will include comparison of the UML notation to Information Engineering notation.
This session will deliver the following benefits to participants:
- A means to assess UML comprehension for the purpose of modeling databases.
- An opportunity to ask questions.
- Explanation of the UML class modeling notation by comparison to Information Engineering.
- Coverage of UML subtleties.
- Small modeling examples that may help participants in their own modeling projects.
