Abstract

It has been widely acknowledged that ambiguous or incomplete customer requirements are a major reason for the failure of software development projects. A key example of this is the inconsistency between implementation image and specifications provided in the early stages of software development. To address this, we propose a method for automatic generation of user interface prototypes for developing Web-based business applications, based on the requirements specifications defined in the Unified Modeling Language (UML). In this study, we compare the proposed method with traditional use case modeling to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
