I want to know whether we have any UML tools (both commercial & opensource/free) which does generate code from UML diagrams as well as do the reverse engineering from source code and more importantly create a word document with the respective contents on the same? Please clarify.
I have a few queries here in enterprise architect :
1) The reverse engineering will generate only the class diagram as a model? can't we change to another diagrams like sequence diagram?
2) The documentation from the model will contain only the internal structure of the model in terms of class, methods, parameters, etc but wont contain the behavior of the model ? how we can get the content (description) of the behavior of the model with in the system in enterprise architect?
There are some UML Software packages that will write projects from the UML diagrams and some will import projects and generate diagrams that can be edited and used to update projects. The one I hear about most is Rational Rose now owned by IBM. Rational Rose for JEE development . The software is expensive USD $6,050.00 for a single user license.
There are some open source UML modeling packages listed here UML modeing
