My background is application design, but I have never used UML and or Use Cases.
Is UML and use cases the same thing?
Are they somehow valuable to the design of the application?
Briefly, what is the value of UML / and or Use Cases ?
What is your opinion about them (weather or not using Use Cases / and or UML has alot of value or not)... What is the advantage of designing an application with UML / and or Use Cases, as opposed to just simply going straight to the drawing board and writing hand-written specs., pictures, drawings, and screen mock-ups.
