Can anyone explain the difference between UML Class Diagram and Java Class Diagram?
Can I get a short tutorial for UML Class Diagram?

They say UML Class Diagram, but actually they talk about Java Class diagram.

Help appreciated!

A UML class diagram may not be a Java class diagram simply because the former caters also for other platforms and languages other than Java. If you use a UML class diagram to represent a class written in C#, obviously it wouldn't be a java class diagram, would it ?

Hope this helps.

I cover class diagramming, and other models for that matter, at www.agilemodeling.com/artifacts

There's a lot of information there, but hope it helps.
