Project DA-8: Automatic Layout for Use Case Maps
Use Case Maps contain scenario paths (splines) superimposed on a structure of components (usually rectangles). UCMNav supports the creation and editing of UCM models, however, it has no auto-layout mechanism. Such a mechanism is essential in a context where UCM models are reverse-engineered from existing software or designs. This project targets the creation of a tool (integrated to UCMNav or as a stand-alone tool) that would add the layout information to a UCM model. Existing tools such as Graph Viz?
could be integrated to this tool, or else specific layout algorithms could be created. This project requires knowledge of XML and of parsing technologies/tools in general.
