Criticism of UML

I came across this interesting criticism of UML today: Why UML fails to add value to the design and development process.

I agree with the author that UML’s lack of integration into automated lifecycle process at both the domain end and the technology end tends to make the documentation a one time island of work.  However, I do not agree that domain specific products have to be developed.  We do not understand sytems well enough yet to make such a conclusion.

The criticism of UML’s lack of ability to generate code is one of the reasons I am in favor of the Associative Model of Data and the Sentences ADBMS at LazySoft.  The schema, form design, query design and results are all built into a single user interface that can be updated in real time and issues such as normalization and denormalization that plagues relational database integrity and performance do not exist.

I am offering these as ideas.  I am sorry but I do not have time to convert them all to individual icons.
