UML Programs

Posted 28 March 2007 - 02:06 PM

What programs are you using to create UML diagrams. Are any free software.

I use dia and have used some plugin for eclipse.
But I find dia is not full featured enough for a lot of things.

So what are they?

I've used Rational Rose somethign like 6 years ago. It was mostly like a buggy pain(t).
I've found Enterprise Architect quite handy (not free).
A NetBeans module (don't know it's name, but free) is interesting, although I've just had a quick look at it, and I don't even know it's features and capabilities (let alone stability), but I like that it had many design patterns integrated.

I like visio... it is NOT FREE. But it does come in handy and it a neat little tool. It is not hard to make money at either as designing templates it not too hard. Visio has the ability to generate code based upon the diagrams and I have NEVER used it. It is also supposed to be able to anaylize a project from visual studeo and generate a diagram, that apparently does not work for VS6 (at least it never worked for me).

I also use excel... sounds cheesy but I have done almost all of my database designes in exel and have many class diagrams done that way -- not quite uml (I wish someone would make some autoshape lines to indicate 1-to-1, 1-to-many etc...)

I tried word once or twice. Not really a success there. Lots of the kids in college like to use this approch so I was forced to do so from time to time.

Here is a neat little tool that imports and exports SQL back and forth to database schema diagrams, its called DDT. I think it is only implemented as a free open source exe program from Jo Janssens' home computer (jjanssens@visi.com).

http://janssens.dhs.org/software/

I just tried the link and didn't work. It is his home computer so it will probably be back up in a little while. If not I think I can find a copy someplace.

There are a few large Open Source Java impementations of UML tools available. I will get back to you latter on this.

Try this address:
http://www.visi.com/~jjanssens/

These are open source:
* ArgoUML: http://argouml.tigris.org/
* StarUML: http://staruml.sourceforge.net/en/

Enterprise Architect is NOT free: http://www.sparxsystems.com.au/
However, the "Professional" Edition is "full featured" for around $200:

Well you can use access it is quite simple actually, use their umm relationships diagrams. It is quite nice start actually, helps find problems with your relationships fast.

Wow - Flashback. I was trying out Visual Paradigm UML software back then, but have since been using Jude Community Edition.
