Uml tool analysis

UML tool analysis

  • Find a common UML Tool for OGSA

  • Requirements

    • Collaborate

      • Share diagrams

      • Communicate within group and to outside

    • Incorporate diagrams into documents

      • Nice Graphics

      • Clean/simple

    • Export/Import to other tools

      • XMI

    • generate code, reverse code

      • Java

    • Free

    • OGSA Basic Profile Compliant :)

UML specification available from

http://www.uml.org/

Tools under consideration

Tools Under Consideration

  • Fujaba

  • ArgoUML

  • JUDE

  • UMLGraph

  • Poseidon for UML

  • MagicDraw

  • DIA

  • AndroMDA

  • Omondo

  • IBM’s RSA

A much longer list is here:

Free tools examined results

Free Tools Examined - results

  • FUJABA

    • Simple to use, no XMI, missing sequence diagram

  • ArgoUML

    • Also simple, supports XMI, missing sequence diagram

  • JUDE

    • Simple to use, has sequence diagram

    • lacks XMI support - might be able to get GGF the pro version?

  • UMLGraph

    • Could not get it to work in 5 minutes

  • Poseidon

    • Advanced/Sophisticated UI, yet intuitive, sequence diagram supported

    • XMI supported

    • slow starting


Additional tools evaluated

Additional tools evaluated…

  • MagicDraw Community Edition

    • Registration required and limited functionality (restrictive)

    • Community (free) edition limited in diagram/XMI support

    • Decent interface - sophisticated, therefore easy to use

    • XMI supported

  • DIA

    • open source, capable of any graphics

    • No UML semantics - just graphics

  • AndroMDA

    • Model Driven Architecture (MDA) toolset

    • build web services based on XMI

  • Omondo

    • Eclipse plug-in, MDA support planned

    • Good for programming


Uml tool analysis

More...

  • IBM’s Rational Software Modeler

    • Free to GGF - full version ($2,495.00 savings)

    • More Complicated to use, however full featured

    • I signed up - 3-5 days to process the application. GGF was listed as a standards group. Still waiting for the GGF approval…

    • Downloaded the 30 day public evaluation version (>400mb!)

    • Not too hard to use, however would like to know how to export images

    • XMI supported

  • Visual Paradigm’s UML

    • XMI, Easy to use

    • Many diagram types supported

  • Summary on next slide, Discuss on teleconference

  • Future test: XMI interoperability


  • Summary table

    Summary Table

    Note: I was unable to share models using XMI between different vendors
