Abstract: The UML is a defacto tool used by the software industry for designing the software system. The UML comprises 13 diagrams which are used to represent static and dynamic behavior of the system. The usecase is one of the UML diagram which is used to describe the interaction between the user and the system. In this paper, we are proposing an automated tool to translate the UML diagram and its artifacts into the text format and is represented in form of a table. This translation is carried out in two stages. 1: Converting the UML diagram into intermediate text form using generic tool called White Star UML. 2: The intermediate text is converted to table form using the tool proposed in this paper. The output achieved at the end of the second stage is further used for the abstraction of predicate logic.
