Dr. Ivar Jacobson is widely regarded as the father of the use case, Unified Modeling Language and Rational Unified Process. Jacobson’s thinking was vital to modern business modeling and aspect-oriented software development. His recent piece, “Ivar Jacobson’s Use Case 2.0,” advises developers on how to deal with methods and tools in a super-light and agile way.
Use Case 2.0 re-focuses on the basics and offers software teams, a slimmed down, leaner way of working, allowing for increased benefits of iterative, incremental development on an enterprise level. It is a scalable, agile practice that leverages use cases to capture a set of requirements and drive incremental development of a system in order to fulfill those requirements more efficiently.
Jacobson’s sees six basic principles as being at the core of any successful application of use cases:
Jacobson and his team focuses on the content of the practice itself: things to work with , working appliances and products, and things to do.
Use Case 2.0 is compatible with many other software development practices such as Continuous Integration, Intentional Architecture, and Test-Driven Development.
