In the November 2003 issue of the JavaRanch Journal, JavaRanch's Valentin Crettaz included an informative reflection on the recent UML 2003 Conference held in San Francisco during October. Take a look and learn what top researchers, practitioners, and industry leaders are up to.
Any thoughts or comments on Val's article?

In his talk, Prof. B�zivin argued that future versions of UML should offer support for aspects. Furthermore, he advocated for a much simpler form of the UML specification because developers were not paid for reading, writing or interpreting the specification but for actually developing systems.

This was interesting. In my experience developers actually make fairly minimal use of those massive specification documents, reading the overview and referring back when specific details are needed. Certain artifacts are useful, but often the specification document is sheer overkill.
