Learning styles of different learners vary. So, different approaches to explaining theoretical concepts should be followed. TraceCases is a simplified tool for understanding RUP Use-Case Analysis. A use-case model is given as input, validated and analysis classes are derived and shown. Metrics for use-case model and analysis classes are computed. Traceability between use-case model and analysis classes is illustrated.
