Scenarios are useful for the elicitation, description, and analysis of software requirements. However, they need to be used in cooperation with complementary general requirements, and both views must be linked in a way that supports traceability, navigation, and analysis. Jiang proposed to introduce Use Case Map (UCM) scenario models into the Telelogic DOORS requirements management system and to maintain relationships as both views evolve over time. This paper describes new tool support based on an open platform, the jUCMNav Eclipse plug-in, which was extended to integrate with DOORS. This novel integration provides a more reliable and usable front-end to UCM modeling in collaboration with general requirements management. Additional capabilities for creating links automatically and improving this process are also discussed.
