CHAPTER 1: What Is UML? > Introducing UML 2.0

Introducing UML 2.0

The next version of UML, 2.0, is due to be released sometime in 2003. Three proposals have been submitted. I have based the content of this book on those submissions and my expectation that they will be adopted in whole or in part. Version 2.0 is a substantial improvement of the underlying architecture, cleaning up many of the fundamental definitions and improving the alignment with the other key technologies sponsored by the OMG.

I've outlined some of the specific objectives for version 2.0 set forth in the RFP. I don't expect beginners to UML to understand them from these very brief descriptions. The rest of this chapter explains many of the new terms. The rest of the book is devoted to explaining how these concepts have been addressed in the diagrams and in the semantics that support the diagrams. For those of you who have been working with UML for a while, these items should demonstrate the OMG's commitment to the long-term success of UML.
