2. Default Naming

A UML model can completely describe a variety of systems using both syntactic element definition and semantic diagram rendering. Although semantics are not included in the UML specification, they are important to a UML model in that they clarify meaning and enhance understanding for human readers. It is also possible to enhance diagrams with non-UML elements such as shapes and text objects. These items will not appear in any generated code, but they will be available for viewing within the diagrams.
