This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Has anybody successfully used Poseidon community edition for Part II diagrams ? I would like to hear your opinions about it. It looks like a decent tool, although cannot be compared with commercial ones like rose or 2gether. It supports all the important UML diagrams. It doesn't support component diagram explicitly, but can be done using deployment diagram tools.
Rufus, Interestingly Petstore 1.3 package contains some UML diagrams which are developed using ArgoUML, which is the open source software Poseidon uses.

I downloaded Poseiden and tried it. Poseiden has more features than ArgoUML. I thought the documentation was poor. I had trouble figuring out how to show aggregation. If you search the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum you'll find somebody else came to the judgement as I has on this subject. Now don't get me wrong. I think an open source UML tool is a great thing. I think people should use this tool and contribute to its development. If time is important to you in finishing the SCEA part II exercise, I think the trail version of MagicDraw is a better choice.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
