Hi guys. I wonder what programs you like to use for creating UML Class diagrams, and why. I am looking for a nice tool that can help me make these diagrams. I do not know if I understood correctly, but it seems that some programs even generate these diagrams automatically from existing code. I hope you guys have some suggestions for me. I am using Eclipse, and my total number of classes will roughly be 30-35.

Yes, you can get Eclipse to generate its own UML diagrams, and maybe even generate method stubs from UML diagrams. It is so long since I tried it, that I Have forgotten how to do it.
There are many tools which allow you to create UML by hand. Cay Horstmann has one called violet.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
