Abstract: The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a language for specifying, visualizing, constructing, and documenting the artifacts of software systems, as well as for business modeling and other non-software systems. The UML represents a collection of best engineering practices that have proven successful in the modeling of large and complex systems. The Objective of this thesis is to find out a way to migrate the Booch notation models to UML notation models. UML notation is a state-of-art notation model language. The architecture of the modeling and the notation of the diagram have a different from the Booch notation model. Some notations and diagrams of Booch may not be existed in the UML. Booch notation is the most popular modeling language in the past few years. UML is the popular modeling language in the future. There must be a safety and easy way to migrate the old created booch model to the new modeling. This thesis is to provide a solution of how to migrate all the notations of the Booch to the UML. This thesis has three phases: 1. To study and understand the arise, the goals and the structures of UML, on Chapters 1,2,3. 2. To develop the migration method to migrate the Booch notations to UML notations, on Chapters 4,5,6. 3. UML is still developing and improving. A few of my comments are written after years of study and implementation on UML, on Chapters 7,8,9,10 The first phase, is to study the survive value of the UML by the way of studying its inventor's background, history, goals, application, and structures. This foundation knowledge has a great help on the second phase of migration development. The second phase, a mature new methodology must be considered to provide a path for others old methodology to migrate to it. Therefore, my thesis is focus on developing a migration mapping table or method. Cases are used to practice on the usage of the migration from Booch's notation to UML's notation. The third phase, after years of my studying and development based on the UML, some comments about the UML is written down in my thesis. These comments are hopefully to help the people on the further evaluation or development on the UML.
