View Full Version : UML diagrams from source code!

04-21-2008, 08:17 PM

I am desperate to find a way to generate a class diagram that shows relationships of classes in my java software from the source code itself.

I have made a very basic diagram on BlueJ, and I have Borland, Eclipse and Netbeans.

Borland made a diagram but did not show any dependancies, I am really frustrated by this and any help to make any kind of diagram, use case, sequence, whatever, would be muchly appreciated!

Most UML tools cost $$$. I don't know of any free ones. You may want to search to see if there are any free Eclipse plugins that will do UML for you. Let us know if you find any.

If you are willing to spend some money (or just need something temporarily), there is a UML tool which I have used in the past and like: Enterprise Architect (http://www.sparxsystems.com/). They offer a 30 day trial and its $120 if you wish to purchase it.

as already pointed out the really easy to use and powerful UML tools probably cost money (expensive maybe)...but, argoUML is pretty good once u get the hang of it and netbeans also supposed has some UML capabilities like generating class diagrams from source
