Modelling interactions for automatic execution using UML activity diagrams

Werner Putschögl and Bernhard Dorninger


Software applications involving interactions of distributed systems are very common nowadays. Frequently, interactions are modelled during the analysis phase of a project and subsequently coded manually. Very often this results in a divergence of analysis model and the implemented code. Moreover, the border between interaction handling code and domain code may be blurred. In addition, hard-coding collaborations and interactions may impede maintainability of an application. In this paper, we propose a procedure for modelling interactions-and also collaborations-with the means of slightly extended UML activity diagrams. The resulting interaction model is then transformed to a machine interpretable format and may subsequently be processed and controlled by an interaction infrastructure, which we developed for this purpose. In addition, our procedure encourages a clear separation of interaction processing and domain code.
