Item Management (continued)

Overview

A common feature that software provides to users is the ability to manage a collection of items. In this chapter, we implement this functionality in the publisher application, so that users can manage the news items that are stored in the publisher database.

Use Cases

The following figure shows the use case diagram which summarizes the use cases that our added functionality must support.

Use case diagram

In a larger application, it is not usually necessary to enumerate the detailed use cases shown in the above figure. Instead, these use cases are compressed into a single use case called something like manage items as illustrated in the following figure.
