PoseidenUML from www.gentleware.com is a good product, free and will do what you want.

AFAIK there is no commercial or open-source UML tool capable of producing sequence diagrams from code. To do that you have to run the code in an instrumented JVM to determine which methods are called in what order from where -- the other option (trying to infer it from the source) is a computationally difficult problem.

I recommend togethersoft.. but its not free. There is a free program for eclipse (I've forgotten the name). I personally do not like poseidon because it does not do roundtrip without paying for plugins (200 a pop). I get togethersoft free through my university.

Rational XDE, maybe? It's not free though, but IMHO, it's the best for Java development.

Yes I have, and it's somewhat limited in the kind of sequence diagrams it can do. The diagrams it does are REALLY detailed (code-level) and big, and don't show all of the possible cases that polymorphism can get you into. This is just an artifact of trying to work backwards from code, and not observing the runtime behavior of a system.
