Hi guys,

I am interested in knowing what tools you guys are using throughout the whole lifecycle. I am not interested about tools like eclipse or netbeans as these are development tools. I am more interested in knowing what tools people are using for capturing requirements, analysis and design.

I have not used any tool for this purpose as i mostly use UML and microsoft word. Is there a tool that incorporates everything in one place?

Thanks

Excel, Word, Visio & MS Project ;)

Unfortunately, no.

A wiki.

The thought of managing a project using MS tools makes me cringe.

At the place I'm working at right now we're using Word and Visio for the requirements, we draw UML diagrams with Visio - there is a package of templates installed in Visio for drawing UML diagrams. But I don't like it at all, it's sometimes hard to align lines and blocks in the diagrams properly, and sometimes it does strange things. Visio is really a drawing program and it doesn't completely understand UML.

I've looked at the UML tools in NetBeans but it looks like they've removed them from the latest versions of NetBeans.

Yes i was interested in UML on Netbeans but it seems to have disappeared on all current verions.
