This article shows how to automatically transform UML activity diagrams into WebSphere® Business Modeler processes. Requirements analysis is frequently performed using UML, creating activity diagrams to describe business processes. However, UML tools usually do not provide support for cost and duration analysis and simulation, which is why it is important for a model-driven architecture (MDA) approach to be able to reuse the UML diagrams in a more business-oriented fashion.
