    • scenarios

Use Case Scenarios

  • Main success scenario
  • Alternates and exceptions
  • Indicating iteration

Advanced Techniques

  • <<include>> relationship
  • <<exclude>> relationship
  • Generalization
  • Specialization
  • Multiplicity

Practical Use Cases Concepts

  • Flows of events and their purpose: primary, alternate, and exception paths
  • Methods for documenting primary flows
  • Documenting alternate and exception flows
  • Documenting scenarios
  • Narrative flow examples
  • Use Cases and Test Cases
    • Relationship between use cases and test cases/scenarios

  • UML Concepts
    • UML notation
    • Class and object relationships
    • Extracting classes from use cases
    • Verifying a class: attributes, operations, and associations/multiplicity
    • Include relationship and example
    • Referring to includes in flows
    • Extend relationship and example
    • Referring to extends in flows
    • Generalization relationship and example
