Hi Ranchers,

I need your advice.

I have gone through various posts where people have suggested various UML tools .
I have not seen anybody mentioning NetBeans though it is also open source and available freely and should have been a natural choice since it is by SUN.Am i missing something?

As a part of design the Java code also gets generated by NetBeans. Are we supposed to send that also ?

Thanks
Ashu

There really is no 'preferred' tool. You can use MS Paint for all the people grading the assignment care.

If you can get NetBeans to create the appropriate UML diagrams for you, you should do it. Then blog about it and let other people know about how easy or hard it was.

Thanks for your suggestion.

"As a part of design the Java code also gets generated by NetBeans. Are we supposed to send that also ?"

Thanks

Ashu,

You can use NetBeans UML plugin if you wish. But I like more StarUML free UML design tool.

Regarding sending code - you MUST strictly follow your assignment. I doubt it asks you to send any Java code.

regards,
MZ

Like MZ, I also used StarUML. And, as MZ said, it'd look very bad if you sent in any Java source code.

You can look at Visual Paradigm. They have free community edition, however there will be watermarks on exported images. In order to remove them you will need to purchase the personal edition, which will cost you around 50 EUR.

I can confirm, community edition of Visual Paradigm is pretty good and powerful.

MagicDraw ULM Community Edition, free and easy to use. I was able to make gif's of all the diagrams and inserted them in HTML page. Worked like charm
