It is claimed that the Unified Modeling Language (UML) is emerging as the accepted standard graphical language for specifying, constructing, visualizing and documenting the object oriented information systems development process. As such it has gained a place in many information systems programs. An investigation of Australian organizations indicates that the use of object oriented development methodologies and UML is gradually increasing in Australia but is still to see general acceptance. This raises the question of the priority that should be accorded to the inclusion of UML in competition with other topics and issues in information systems education programs.
