TogetherSoft�s product will reverse engineer code as will Rational�s. You could download Eclipse and one of the free UML tools too. I use Omondo�s product in Eclipse for adequate class diagrams. See http://www.eclipseuml.com/

I'm curious as to why you think you want this. If you have written the code yourself presumably you know the structure of it and could draw any diagram which is needed yourself. The only time I've ever had any use for automatic tools is in trying to get a grip on unfamiliar code, which seems not to be the case here.
I'm also worried that any diagrams produced by an automated process aren't actually going to be much use. If your software has only a few classes, then it would be much easier to draw by hand. If your software has lots of classes, then the automatic diagramming software will either draw a mess or need lots of your time and input to simplify it to a point where it makes sense.
Can you tell us a bit more about your project, what information you are trying to communicate with these diagrams, and to whom ?

This is absolutly right !
With many classes, reverse is a mess and it last long.
Omondo is trying to find a way out using in his next build an optimized auto-layout and also using SWT/GEF (it is faster and nicer than swing). This is just the beginning of a long road to quality software.
 
Something must be done about this. Let's start by reading this tiny ad:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
