Use Case Class


Namespace: SoftwareEng

A Use Case defines a set of Use Case Instance s, where each instance is a sequence of actions a system performs that yields an observable result of value to a particular Use Case Actor. A Use Case Class contains all main, alternate flows of events related to producing the 'observable result of value'. Technically, a Use Case is a class whose instances are scenarios.

Classic definition of this can be found in Object-OrientedSoftwareEngineering by Ivar Jacobsen.
