Reuse of use cases diagrams: an approach based on ontologies and semantic web technologies
MetadataShow full item record
Software reuse is defined as the use of any artifact, or part thereof, created before, on a new Project. This practice has significant benefits in reducing costs and increasing quality and productivity in software development. Numerous approaches have been proposed aimed mostly at the source code reuse, but this type of reuse has its limitations because development platforms and technologies are constantly changing. Then, it is necessary to apply reuse over software artifacts created at higher levels of software life cycle such as requirements specification. This paper presents a tool for the reuse of use case diagrams by storing their information in OWL ontology and the use of Semantic Web technologies.
