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.
Could anyone please tell me free UML tool that exports in HTML that I can use for SCEA Part 2? I tried ArgoUML but it doesn't export to HTML and Mircosoft's VISIO's HTML is not "pure" and might be rejected. Exact name of the product or link to download would help a great deal. Many thanks for your help.
We primarily use Eclipse to develop, and so spent quite a bit of time looking for a free UML plugin for Eclipse. We found some, but none that were as comprehensive as the UML tools built directly into Netbeans. So, now we just switch to Netbeans when we need to do UML, and so I'd recommend giving that a try as well.
I must say I really like StarUML: is fast, the look&feel and usability reminds me of Rational Rose, and is UML2 compliant (although it doesn't seems to be able to export to UML2 XMI, a drawback if you want to use MDA). But if you want a nice UML editor to draw some diagrams and maybe generate some code, it's a very good choice. (I evaluated a couple of tools for SCEA part 2, and this was my final choice... I've exported the diagrams to PNG images, put links to them in an html document, and after a while I got the certification ) [ October 25, 2007: Message edited by: Gabriel Claramunt ]
On second thought, the component diagrams in netbeans are ugly. I'm not sure if I'm sticking with it. I might be too picky, but the components aren't the normal shape and it uses a stereotype to denote a component instead of the UML accepted shape.
I've done Part II with Visual Paradigma for UML. First, I gave the community edition a try. After a couple of diagrams the exported images were crippled by watermarks. The "community edition" is virtually useless. If you want to get rid of the watermarks you must spend 59 USD for the "personal edition". There is still a "Not for commercial use" hint in the diagrams though.
Use BoUML. It's lightweight and exports nicely to HTML.

StarUML convert here! Netbeans was driving me up the wall so I am in the process of converting over to StarUML. I've discovered what i was doing wrong the last time I tried to use it (which caused me not to like the tool).

Thanks guys/gals. Is there a time limit/expiry date for giving SCEA part 2 & 3 after buying voucher for Part 2? I bought voucher for part 2 last year and it doesn't have an expiry date.

If I'm not mistaken, you have 1 year to complete the assignment after purchase/download date.
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
