Hi,

I have downloaded the eclipse by title - eclipse-modeling-galileo-SR2-incubation-macosx-carbon.tar

I wanted to make deployment and sequence diagram using eclipse.
I could make deployment diagram but i could not correctly figure out creating sequence diagram.
I had searched on internet but did not get any tutorial related to creating Sequence diagram in Eclipse,specifically this version.

Can some one point me to some website were this tutorial is present.

Other thought that came to mind is any one using eclipse to make UML diagrams ?

Thanks.

Actually, while I don't do that many UML diagrams (and most of them are swimlanes), I prefer the stand-alone ArgoUML app, which is open-source.

The Eclipse UML2 tools are a work-in-progress; I don't think all the diagrams are implemented yet.

I had downloaded the stand-alone ArgoUML app but also thought to try using eclipse( as it is a great freely available Java development tool)

I could make Sequence diagram in AgroUML, also added the Deployment diagram in AgroUML.
thanks Tim and David for helping out.

The other problem i found in eclipse is that some kind of error popping up as you progress ahead creating these diagrams.
Is eclipse support for UML still in the development phase ?
I even cannot find proper documentation for UML any where on the eclipse website.

thanks

The best sequence diagram creation tool is RSA but it is only Eclipse 3.4 compliant. btw, the graphical integration with frames is just superb
You can try EclipseUML for reverse engineering with Eclipse 3.5 SR2, it would do the job.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
