Hello Rangers! I'm very new to UML. My first question would be. What program to use when designing UML diagrams. I believe someone suggested Rational Rose, Visio( Microsoft ). What if it's for private learning and I don't have much mony to spend? // Mathias
Grab some Java source code of a well design system, then get Together. Then do a reverse engineering of the code to UML diagrams.....that would help you heaps in learning UML for the first time. Forget about Rational or Visio. Rational is great but they lack development env for u to experiment. Visio cannot do what I've just said above.
Mathias, You may consider downloading Oracle JDeveloper9i Beta Release for FREE from Oracle Technet Site.This product not only provides you an opportunity to work with a Java IDE, but also has integrated modelling tools which can reverse-engineer your Java projects to UML artifacts and forward-engineer UML artifacts to Java projects. Hope this helps, Sandeep SCJP2, OCSD(Oracle JDeveloper), OCED(Oracle Internet Platform) [This message has been edited by Desai Sandeep (edited September 11, 2001).]
