What is Visual Modeling?
Visual Modeling is the process of capturing essential parts of the system using standard graphical notations. It is a core feature of state-of-the-art application development which not only allows you to build a model of your system or application but also to model things easier, faster and more accurately on the front-end while maintaining the syntaxes and semantics at the back-end.
More often than not, a software product can show a level of complexity that demands an army of developers to work on a single prototype. A critical aspect during an application building journey is to seamlessly move from a conceptualization phase to an implementation phase. During the conceptualization phase, it is key to derive the right draft of all parts of the application which include its complexities such as dynamic characteristics and integration of APIs, data etc. This can be achieved if the user has a good modelling interface which supports a Unified Modelling Language (UML). Today’s software demands a ready to use foundation before anything is built on it. Quite similar to the template designs one can experience while using Microsoft Powerpoint. A user simply chooses a style and starts creating their PPT over a predefined layout. The same applies to application development tools as well which provides elements like themes, widgets and mini apps that helps the user develop an application more easily rather than having them build each element. This process of trying to automate parts of application is model driven development.
