Organizing Project

A system is typically described in multiple perspectives.

Start from Template

You can start a modeling project by selecting a template. To start a project with a template, select File | New From Template | <TemplateName>. StarUML supports 4 default templates:

  • UMLMinimal - A single model with UML Standard Profile.
  • UMLConventional - Use Case Model, Analysis Model, Design Model, Implementation Model, and Deployment Model with UML Standard Profile.
  • 4+1 View Model - Pilippe Kruchten’s 4+1 Architectural View Model.
  • Rational : Approach of Rational Rose Tool.

If you don’t want to use pre-defined templates, you need to make your own project structure.

Applying Profiles

To include UML Standard Profile, select Model | Apply Profile | UML Standard Profile (v2) in Menu Bar.
