Poll: What UML Tools do you use?


  1. Hello, I`m using Visual Paradigm UML, because it`s simple and has support for many UML 2.1 diagrams. I thinnk that Netbeans UML is very nice, but lacks support for other diagrams.

  3. Jude Community by Change Vision. I’ve used a lot of different UML tools, some ridiculously expensive, and none of them have proven to be as user friendly for pure UML as Jude has. Oh, and did I mention the Community version is free?

    My most hated UML tool? Rhapsody by Telelogic/IBM. Utter crap. Granted, it might be built and intended to do more than just UML, but UML is it’s focus and my goodness is it cumbersome to use for that.

  4. Borland Together. Once stung by the LiveSource (simultaneous round-trip) bug, always addicted. The added MDA-stuff in later versions is promising. Hopefully, I could use it professionally some day.

  7. Enterprise Architect at work, BoUML for personal work (free, fast, very good). Also Umlet for quick drawing. Sometimes NetBeans.

  9. When I want to use UML as a sketch (see http://martinfowler.com/bliki/UmlAsSketch.html) I follow Martin Fowler’s advice and use the Visio stencils he recommends in his book. I use the tools that allow you to ‘build a UML model’ through the diagrams only for reverse-engineering purposes. The last one I tried was Altova’s UModeL. It is simple yet powerful. I consider it relatively affordable (considering that is a tool I use to learn from Java code bundles I’m usually given to evaluate).

    My two cents. 🙂

  11. The use of UML diagrams as a means to draw diagrams of – mostly – object-oriented software is generally agreed upon by software developers. When developers draw diagrams of object-oriented software, they usually follow the UML notation. java developers
