Seqential diagrams vs Other types

Hi !
I have used Seqential diagrams with success already the first time trying the RUP.
In the project we used Together ver 5 as a
modelling tool, but I would like to ask if
anyone know a tool that can generate better
code than Together with Sequential Diagrams,
just in my effort to do it a better next.
The model itself could generate about 20 classes
including subclasses and a lot of foreign keys

TJ does a pretty decent job of generating code. I am not aware of any better tool. But in my experience- not generating code thru the tool is good idea. I had participated in the IEF fiasco nad since then I am totally averse to code generators.

I second Sanjay's recommendation. Code generation
tools are still too far behind in their ability to
work with the programmer.
If your tool will generate code that you want to use,
more power to you. It might be nice to save some
typing for get and set methods, etc. But I personally
dislike trying to use a design tool to help with
my implementation. I have never found one that works
well enough, and I'll wait a while before I look again.
IMHO,
Joe

I was generating classes and their
subclasses from the model including the sql-scripts, by Together 5.0
Afterwards the sql-scripts build our Oracle database(25 tables with Fkeyes) and the java-classes were exported into a JAR then imported to VA-JAVA ver 3.5.
In VA-JAVA we created the "code" based upon
the skeleton mentioned above.
This was definitely no big deal

I am with Sanjay and Joe. If you want clean and clear code, better not let the tool generate code.
