This paper presents the concepts of database systems as well as the overview of the use of Unified Modeling Language (UML) as a standard notation of real-world objects in developing object-oriented design methodology for computer applications. The UML is a tool for specifying software systems that include standardized diagrams to define, illustrate and visually map or model a software system's design and structure. UML diagrams include the use case diagram, class diagram, sequence diagram, statechart diagram, activity diagram, component diagram, and deployment diagram. The integration of these diagrams to different software processes have been discussed.
