Hello all,
I am asked to create a uml component diagram for an application. I have basic understanding of UML but never created a component diagram before. I was assuming I could do it in visio, but seems like the standard version of VISIO does not have a UML capabilities(not sure about this, but I could not create a UML diagram)

I am looking for any tools that can help me create this for me. Any help would be appreciated. Is there any open source tool that I can use to accomplish my task

Any response would be appreciated.

If an individual understands the Unified Modeling Language (UML) then they can easily create UML diagrams on paper, on a whiteboard, using MS Word, MS Powerpoint, or Visio. It looks like you need to study UML a bit more. Good luck!

For Visio check Templates by Pavel Hruby

I've just imported these stencils and it looks simple and complete.
