PowerDesigner for Java Overview
brief overview of uml
Brief Overview of UML
  • Why Use Object-Oriented Modeling?
    • Visually define and communicate the structure and behavior of a software system
    • Represent systems using OO concepts
      • Abstraction: Describe using relevant characteristics
      • Encapsulation: Combine Data and Methods
      • Inheritance: Supertype/Subtype
      • Polymorphism: Overloading and Overriding
    • Link concepts to executable code
brief overview of uml4
Brief Overview of UML
  • The UML consists of 9 diagrams:
    • Static
      • Class and Object diagrams
    • Dynamic
      • Use Case, Sequence, Statechart, Collaboration and Activity diagrams
    • Implementation
      • Component andDeployment diagrams

Class Diagram in UML
  • Classes and Interfaces
    • attributes, operations, constructors, accessors
  • Relationships
    • Generalizations (Inheritances), realizations, associations and dependencies
component diagram in uml
Component Diagram in UML
  • Components
    • Classes, Interfaces, Operations
    • Component type (Standard, Servlet, EJBs, Web Service)
  • Dependencies, Generalizations
the powerdesigner object oriented model
PowerDesigner V9.5 OOM supports all the 9 UML diagrams.

PowerDesigner OOM supports the following languages:

Java, C#, VB .NET, C++, PowerBuilder, IDL, VB6, XML and WSDL

For Java, PowerDesigner V9.5 supports:

Round-trip Java generation/reverse engineering

Servlet, JSP, EJB including O/R mapping

Web Services

The PowerDesigner Object-Oriented Model
building an oom for java
Create a Class Diagram

Design packages, classes, interfaces, attributes, operations, …

Preview the Java code

Implement the Java methods using an IDE

Generate the Java code

Reverse engineer Java classes

Iterative round-trip engineering

Building an OOM for Java
defining packages
Packages in UML:

A logical container for objects that belong together

Provides a way to partition and manage work

Provides namespace scope for objects

Packages in Java:

Directory structure containing objects

Classes are known by their Package (path) and class name

Packages in PowerDesigner:

Add model management capabilities

Ideally a container for related objects

Defining Packages

public class Item


public int itemNumber;

public java.lang.String itemName;

public double itemPrice;

public int getItemNumber()

* Purpose: Defines the Class Product


package Product;

public class Product extends Item


public java.lang.String category;

public java.lang.String getCategory()


return category;


/** @param newCategory */

public void setCategory(java.lang.String newCategory)


category = newCategory;



Generalization (Inheritance)

defining operations
Defining Operations
  • Create operations
  • Generate default constructor, static initializer
  • Generate default getters and setters
  • Add operations defined in a parent classes or interfaces
defining associations
Associations are the relationships between classes

Implementation depends on the definition of:

Multiplicity: Is this a single reference or array?

Navigability: Is there a reference variable?

Visibility: Visibility of the reference variable

Role Names: Name given to the reference variable

Defining Associations
defining interfaces
Defining Interfaces
  • Generated Code:

package Product;

import java.util.*;

public interface IItem


int getItemNumber();

java.lang.String getItemName();

double getItemPrice();


The IItem Interface

package Product;

import java.util.*;

public class Item implements IItem


public int itemNumber;

public java.lang.String itemName;

public double itemPrice;

public int getItemNumber()


return itemNumber;



The Item Class

object reuse in powerdesigner

PowerDesigner allows classes defined in one package or model to be reused in other packages and models via Shortcuts.

Shortcuts define an object that is outside the model or package in question. It acts like a pointer to the original object.

Replication Objects (new in V9.5)

It is a copy of the original object. Users can modify the original objects and the replicated objects.

Object Reuse in PowerDesigner
editing the java code in an ide
PowerDesigner does not generate complete code for all methods.

Users need to implement the methods using PowerDesigner or an IDE (JBuilder, Visual Café, …)

You can use the Edit With feature to launch an IDE. PowerDesigner will automatically copy the modified Java code back in the model and synchronize the model with the code.

Editing the Java Code in an IDE
generating the java code24
Generating the Java Code
  • You could compile the Java code, generate Java doc and deploy components in an Application Server.
reverse engineering java code
Recover Java code

Reverse engineer from a .java or .class file

Select from individual files, a directory or an archive

PowerDesigner can create a new OOM or extend an existing one

Understand existing Java applications

Capture a library for reference in other models

Synchronize a model with externally edited code

Reverse Engineering Java Code
iterative round trip engineering
Build and test as the Design matures:

Create an OOM

Generate Java code and edit in an IDE

Reverse engineer the edited code to synchronize the Model

Modify the Model

Generate new code from the updated Model
