Introduction

UML Profiles provide a generic extension mechanism for building UML models in particular domains. They are based on additional Stereotypes and Tagged values that are applied to Elements, Attributes, Methods, Links, Link Ends and more. A profile is a collection of such extensions that together describe some particular modeling problem and facilitate modeling constructs in that domain.
