Tech Briefs Illustrate a UML Approach to Modeling NIEM Exchanges


A companion set of Technical Briefs is now available from SEARCH, which illustrate how to use the Uniform Modeling Language (UML) 2.0 to develop information exchange package documents (IEPD) and data exchanges that conform to national justice standards—specifically, the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) and Global Reference Architecture (GRA).

The briefs provide a “best practice” process for justice practitioners to create a UML model that conveys the business and technical information need to define, develop, and deploy standards-compliant exchange services. The process covers the first three phases of the IEPD development life cycle.

SEARCH prepared these documents under funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice. They were written by Information Sharing Specialist Diane Lacy.

Want to know more about NIEM, IEPD development, and why NIEM-UML is a useful open source tool for modeling information exchanges? Check out our NIEM page for answers.
