Hi guys,
I just wanted to know which UML tool can I use to create the use case diagrams for this exam. Not yet started preparing intensively. Have some experience with rational rose, but that tool is not for free. I want something that I can install at home also. I take a long time to study due to my work load, so looking for something that won't expire .

Have seen that JDeveloper 10g supports all these diagrams. Is this sufficient enough to prepare for the exam ?. Guys please advice .

Thanx

You can use the JavaRanch search feature at:

Searching for 'UML tools' returns a lot of information.

BTW, I like Jude.

Regards,
Dan

Hi,

I also used Jude. I found it simple and useful for what we are expected to do for exam.

To all the Jude users...
If I want to show '...' or ':' to show an incomplete list of attributes in class diagram, how do I go about it? I am not showing all the attributes and methods in the class diagram, only selected relevant ones, but I also want to send the message across that the attribute and method list is not complete and more can follow, hence the ... or : notation is required.

Jude is probably a very good tool for that purpose since it falls under the category of sketch, or drawing tool.

Martin Fowler says in UML Distilled Third Edition page #2:

At the heart if the role of the UML in software development are the different ways in which people want to use it, differences that carry over from other graphical modeling languages. These differences lead to long and difficult arguments about how the UML should be used.

To untangle this, Steve Mellor and I independently came up with a characterization if the three modes in which people use the UML: sketch, blueprint and programming language. By far the most common of the three, at least to my biased eye, is UML as sketch. In this usage, developers use the UML to help communicate some aspects of a system. ....


Regards,
Dan
