Hi Stefan,

I might also point you to my dissertation, titled "Use Cases: Behavior 
Assembly, Behavior Composition and Reasoning" (Charles University in 
Prague, Jun 2006), and my other work to various degree related to use 
cases, all available at

I would particularly draw your attention to:

* Improved Processing of Textual Use Cases: Deriving Behavior 
Specifications (with J. Drazan, 2007, on employing a Natural Language 
Parser to derive behavior specifications from textual use cases).

* Behavior Assembly and Composition of Use Cases - UML 2.0 Perspective 
(with F. Plasil and J. Adamek, 2005, an analysis of use cases in UML 2.0).

Best Regards,
