As far as I could tell, neither of these products support sequence diagrams. Without them I don't think a UML tool has very much value.

As far as I know, Together WhiteBoard (i.e. the free version) only supports class diagrams.

Rhapsody from I-Logix
www.ilogix.com
provides a free and nice tool. From their site:
Free UML Modeling! It's true. Why pay thousands of dollars for other UML products when you can kick start your modeling efforts for free with Rhapsody Modeler? Rhapsody Modeler is the only free "industrial strength" product of it's kind that allows developers to quickly and easily take advantage of a graphical analysis and design environment based on the Unified Modeling Language, and generate code frames.

Hi friends
I found that the Best tool for designing UML is from
rational software Inc. is Rational Rose.
It is regarded as one of the best.
