Hi All,

I am currently doing part 2 of the SCEA certification. I was hoping those who have passed the assignment could share what tool they used. Perfect for me would be free and runs under Linux.

StarUML - From reading other posts it seems like a lot of people are using Star UML. As I am on Linux this kind of rules out Star UML.
ArgoUML - I have looked at ArgoUML but am a bit hesitent as it only supports UML 1.4. Also do not see option for Component Diagram.
Poseidon for UML 8 - Also looked at Poseidon but don't really want to shell out money just to do an assignment. (Save is disabled unless you pay).
Netbeans UML plugin - Missing option for Component Diagram and Deployment Diagram.


Cheers,
Carl.

Umbrello is a nice Linux tool you can use. However for the purpose of doing the diagrams I would recommend StarUml even if this means to have a temp windows install (use a virtual machine if you wish). I could use the Windows machine at work (after work hours) in order to play with Windows tools. See if you can get your hands on yours .

Thanks Mihai,

Yeah it looks like I might have to do an install of Windows somewhere. Just wanted to avoid that if possible because such a pain with having to reboot. (*I dont really have the memory to be running a VM of windows as well .... ends up being too slow*)

I have actually just installed Visual Paradigm for UML Community Edition which seems to be working well and has all the diagram types I need such as Component Diagram. Only thing is it has "Visual Paradigm for UML Community Edition [not for commercial use]" watermarked at the top of each image. But I don't see that as an issue as long as the marker doesn't.

So I am holding off on StarUML for the moment to see how Visual Paradigm goes......

I am an OSX user and I've used BOUML for my assignment. It's also a modelling tool, i.e. if you changes a component details, all the diagrams will be updated -> you don't have to worry too much about consistency between diagrams. And it does work on Linux.

Just an update in case anyone stumbles across this thread.

In the end I stuck with Visual Paradigm for UML Community Edition. I did need to have separate projects for the sequence diagrams because the community edition does not support more than one type of diagram for a project. This proved only to be a minor issue.

I passed and am now SCEA certified. Yipee!

I'am using astah community edition with Ubuntu Linux

I think it is a good tool, easy to use and uml 2.x compliant

I am using Argo UML only...
btw, does the assignment specify any specific UML version - I don't think so - it just mentions we have to be UML compliant...

ArgoUML does not have component diagram.

I cant see anyone recommending Eclipse. I just got some overview of its EMF bundle. To me, it seems like it should work for the purpose. Anyone having insights of this???

cheers....

I would strongly recommend to consider Visual Paradigm for UML. It's not free through.
