  •        7535

StarUML is a software modeling tool to develop fast, flexible, extensible, featureful UML/MDA platform running on Win32 platform. It is a good alternative to Rational Rose. StarUML provides simple and powerful plug-in architecture so anyone can develop plug-in modules in COM-compatible languages.

It supports Use Case Diagram, Class Diagram, Sequence Diagram, Collaboration Diagram, Statechart Diagram, Activity Diagram, Component Diagram, Deployment Diagram, Composite Structure Diagram. The diagram could be exported to MS document. It also supports Gang of Four and EJB patterns.

Dia - Visio alternative

Dia is inspired by the commercial Windows program Visio, though more geared towards informal diagrams for casual use. It can be used to draw many different kinds of diagrams. It currently has special objects to help draw entity relationship diagrams, UML diagrams, flowcharts, network diagrams, and many other diagrams. It is also possible to add support for new shapes by writing simple XML files, using a subset of SVG to draw the shape.

UML-Designer - OpenSource (EPL licensed) UML2 Graphical Modelers (Class, Composite, State, Activity, Sequence

UML Designer provides a set of common diagrams to work with UML 2.5 models. The intent is to provide an easy way to make the transition from UML to domain specific modeling. This way users can continue to manipulate legacy UML models and start working with DSL. Users can even re-use the provided representations and work in a total transparence on both UML and DSL models at the same time. These plugins are released under the EPL Open-Source License.
