UML has been described by some as “the lingua franca of software engineering”.  Evidence from industry does not necessarily support such endorsements.  How exactly is UML being used in industry – if it is?  This paper presents a corpus of interviews with 50 professional software engineers in 50 companies and identifies 5 patterns of UML use.
