Course Title:

Using the UML Model Browser

Course Level:



caDSR Users and Metadata Consumers

Description: The UML Model Browser is a web-based, caDSR Tool designed to search for and view UML model components loaded in the caDSR. The UML Model Browser accesses the same metadata in the caDSR as the CDE Browser, but displays the information from a UML Model perspective.

Course 1025: Using the UML Model Browser provides learners with an overview of Unified Modeling Language (UML). The UML Class diagram will be deconstructed and associated caDSR metadata will be identified. The course will then guide learners through the UML Model Browser's functionality such as searching, changing search preferences, viewing search results and associated UML model metadata. Finally, the course provides learners on the steps necessary to view their UML model metadata using the UML Model Browser. The course is designed as an interactive course. To get the most out of this material, learners will need to access the UML Model Browser to answer quiz questions and work through exercises.

Credit for the Course: In order to receive credit for this course, you will need to register for course 1025 in the caBIG® Learning Management System (LMS) and obtain a score of 80% or higher on the accompanying quizThis course is no longer being offered.
