Translating Semantic Networks to UML Class Diagrams
The high importance of a proper definition of software architecture is obvious, but this task is not easy, especially in large projects. The project scheme should be legibly structured and clearly visualized. To that aim, usually widespread UML class diagrams are used. However, this way is not flexible and clear enough at the initial state of the development, so there is a need of a more appropriate method. Semantic networks are not so commonly used to meet these demands. Nevertheless, this notation is a fairly suitable approach to building evolutionary computing system architectures. Also, this can be a good mediator for other formats. Moreover, the tools for that may become quite powerful and relevant.
