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 :)

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
slide5
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

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