Using UML Behavioral Model to Support Aspect Oriented Model


Aspect oriented software development is an emerging paradigm of software development. The notion of this technique is separation of concerns which means to implement each concern in a single object in object oriented programming but still there are concerns which are distributed on different objects and are called crosscutting concerns while another form is Core concerns are the core functionality provided by the system but crosscutting concerns are the concerns like logging, performance etc. Modeling of aspect oriented software is different from the normal modeling of object-oriented or procedural language software, because aspects don’t have the independent identity or existence and they are tightly coupled to their woven context so it is difficult to model them. The one aim of our research paper is to explore the domain of Modeling of the aspect-oriented software. The goal of this research paper is to give a UML Behavioral modeling techniques in the domain of aspect oriented software development. This technique of generating UML Behavioral Model for aspects will give better understating of separations concerns.
