Administrative Interface: Views
Use Case Model
In this chapter we discuss each operation (such as "Select All Queue Tables in Database") in terms of a use case by that name. The table listing all the use cases is provided at the head of the chapter (see "Use Case Model: Administrative Interface -- Views").
Graphic Summary of Use Case Model
A summary figure, "Use Case Diagram: Administrator's Interface -- Views", locates all the use cases in a single drawing. If you are using the HTML version of this document, you can use this figure to navigate to the use case in which you are interested by clicking on the relevant use case title.
Individual Use Cases
Each use case is laid out as follows:
- Use case figure. A figure that depicts the use case (see "Preface" for a description of how to interpret these diagrams). We describe the administrative interface with respect to views in terms of a hybrid of use cases and state diagrams. That is, we describe each view as a use case in terms of the operations that represents it (such as "Select All Queue Tables in Database"). We describe each view as a state diagram in that each attribute of the view is represented as a possible state of the view, the implication being that any attribute (column) can be visible or invisible.
- Syntax. The syntax used to perform this activity.
