The authors of this issue's "Point/Counterpoint" department debate the merits of UML as a useful tool. Eoin Woods and David Emery, in "Is UML Sufficient for Describing Architectures?", posit that although widely used, UML has some serious limitations as an architecture description language, while Bran Selic, in "UML 2: Designed for Architects," states that contrary to widespread misconceptions, UML 2 includes a very powerful set of language features intended specifically for software architects.
