UML is a standard way to diagram computer systems or databases.
UML helps developers visualize the relationships between different pieces of software or hardware so they can more easily plan development.
What does UML Stand for? A UML Definition in Plain English
UML stands for Unified Modeling Language. IBM engineer Grady Booch and his team invented UML in 1994, and it quickly became a standard diagramming method.
