Database design goes through three-stage development process: conceptual modeling, logical modeling and physical modeling. The paper deals with transformation of conceptual models to logical ones. Assuming that conceptual models are expressed in UML 2.0, the paper presents two groups of transformation rules. The first group contains commonly used rules dealing with transformation of conceptual models. The second group gathers specific rules, proposed by authors, that can be applied for new features of the UML 2.0.
