We should talk less and draw more. Personally I would like to renounce speech altogether, and like organic nature, communicate everything I have to say in sketches. — Goethe

What is UML? The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a general-purpose visual modeling language for specifying software-intensive systems. More precisely, it is a graphical language for visualizing, specifying, constructing and documenting the artifacts of software-intensive systems. It is popular among Software Developer and Software Engineers for specifying the work products of the Software Development Life Cycle. For a fuller explanation explore What is UML?, Why use UML?, What is Model-Driven Development?, and other Frequently Asked Questions about UML on the UML FAQ page.
Why use UML? As the Architecture Description Language (ADL) of choice for software-intensive applications, UML 2 is a key enabling technology for Model-Driven Development (MDD) approaches. When properly implemented a MDD approach can help your team transition from a traditional human-intensive and code-centric software development process to a Model-Driven software development process that is partially automated, requirements-driven, and architecture-centric. For more information about the advantages of a MDD approach see the Model-Driven Development section of the Model-Based Engineering Forum.
