hi! i've been using a full blown 20 day license demo of rational rose on my NT 550MHz 96MB ram box. it works fine if i don't specify jdk1.2 for the type of project. when i specify jdk1.2 it load tons and tons of classes, really hogs memory and becomes very sluggish. i just can't run any other apps with it. and when i used the "publish to web" feature to publish my diagrams (just a few diagrams) to a server on my ethernet lan, it went on and on publishing all sorts of junk about all those classes most of which i'll never use. a solid 15 minutes and it was still going strong but i finally cancelled. do i need more memory? or does rose just plain suck?
I have used Rose 98i and I believe you can select the package or classes of interest and "Web Publish" the design output for just the selected entities. I believe the "Generate for selected entities" or the like is an option on the Web Publishing dialog. Seems like I used that before. I would guess that if you did not select that option (assuming it exists), it generates the world for you. Rose certainly has some strong points. However, I compared it in detail to Together/J (5 months ago) and Together/J was the superior product.
