Hello All

I've been asked to model a design of a chess game. I have written out flowchart for the showing out the procedure flow using rectangles and ellipses. My question is : Is this considered non-OO to design using a flowchart. I've tried using Use Case Diagram but the only thing I can put there is two actors on either side with both interacting with a 'Move Piece' oval between them.

If flowcharting is not considered OO, then could someone please explain why.

What would be the best method to design the above.


Thanks In Advance.

You certainly want to show a class diagram.

Then, convert your flowchart into a state diagram or an activity diagram.

You focus on the dataflow in a flowchart, and not the interaction between
the different objects.

I assume that your taking a class about programming/Sys. Develeopment or
something similar and I would therefor recomment you to get a book
about OO Analysis and Design from the bookstore/amazon/library...
