the RAD for UML

By lebdenat ·
I try to find a site to learn UML and I've found this site
where they tell about Rapid Application Development to represent UML diagrams and succeed to make an information system. I want to know if some of you know this process for UML and if it is recommanded by OMG as the UP process.

Thanks for your answers.

RAD, aka Rapid Application Development,
is meant for using pre-existing code / modules to rapidly finish the application with bare functionality.

uml may not have the existing modules / code base to use rad effectively.

I would recommend against rad, unless you want a finished product that will be buggy and inefficient.
( no matter what language coding in. )

UML is a way of describing requirements, that lends itself to OO development. RAD is way of turning out quick code. It does this by the use third party objects/code, paying lip service, documentation, quality & performance.
RAD is better known as QAD (Quick and Dirty).
A good set of requirements in UML will help any sort of development. Have a look at Extreme Programming. RAD as it was originally proposed is rarely used anywhere.
