Abstract: Unified Modeling Language (UML) has been widely accepted as the standard object-oriented development methodology in software industry. However, many graphical notations in UML only have informal English definitions and thus are error-prone and cannot be formally analyzed. This paper presents preliminary results on an approach to formally define UML class diagrams using hierarchical predicate-transition nets (HPrTNs). It shows how to define the main concepts related to class diagrams using HPrTN elements.
Keywords: UML class diagrams, hierarchical predicate-transition nets, object-oriented design.
