UML is a modeling language that most developers employed during the design phase. UML provides various types of diagrams used for specifying both the structure and the behavior of systems. During the development process, models specified by these diagrams are eventually transformed into corresponding code. Although there is much research on transforming UML models into code, they discuss mainly the class, state and collaboration diagrams. None propose rules for transforming UML sequence diagrams into a corresponding code. This paper proposes a transformation approach for transforming UML sequence and class diagrams into Java code. The transformation approach consists of a meta model for sequence diagram and transformation rules. The proposed approach is evaluated by applying it to at least three applications.
