Subject Re: Modeling tools
Date Thu, 30 Dec 2010 13:30:31 GMT
I've used Visual Paradigm for UML back when the Kernel was first
moving to the Felix community, they do have a community 'free' edition
[1] however it's really striped down from their full versions (at
least as of that time frame). I think that if we were to invest time
in developing UML diagrams than making them as accessible as possible
via free tooling would be the best course. As to which tool to use
bouml, umbrello, et al are all viable candidates.

What is important for me - is multi platform. Some of you working on Macs, others on Linux
and I on windows. ;-) Created diagram should be exportable to some text form (for example
XML/XMI) and easy to put into version control to allow tracking it and modification in future.
