About MagicDraw™ UML

 

MagicDraw UML is one of the leading UML Modeling CASE tools that is cross-platform compatible with features that include:

 

A handy UML Editor -- Cut/copy/paste and undo/redo functions along with it’s user friendly, customizable GUI lets you express your ideas in UML quickly and precisely. The entire UML 1.3 specification is supported. If you are preparing documentation that needs UML diagrams in it, MagicDraw is a must -- it can convert drawn diagrams to a wide variety of bitmap and scalable formats: jpeg, png, svg, dxf, eps, and wmf.

 

A powerful Code Engineering Tool -- You can construct a UML model, generate source code from it, write more code by hand or in your favorite IDE, then reverse the code, make changes in MagicDraw UML and then merge your model with the code. No details are lost, whether editing the model or the code. Seamless integration with JBuilder and Forte For Java are currently supported. Other IDEs may also be used with MagicDraw UML.

 

A UML Model Reporting Facility - Based on the XSL files, you can generate custom HTML reports for each model element. MagicDraw UML allows you to select what parts of the model to include and how the report should look.

 

An Object-Oriented Model Analysis Tool - If you need your Object-Oriented model expressed with UML, MagicDraw UML can generate package dependency diagrams, recover and display inheritance trees, or track any other kind of relation as a method parameter or a return value, such as dependencies, associations, realizations and class usage.

 

A Custom Object-Oriented Model Generator - MagicDraw UML can generate parts of the model automatically. You can select any object and generate the classes necessary to make it conform to a GoF Design Pattern, make an EJB component out of it or convert it to the class that can be accessed remotely in accordance with the Java RMI specification.

 

Team Modeling Collaboration Tool - More than one developer can work on the same Object-Oriented model files. The UML model is stored in the Teamwork Server repository. A developer can lock-out part of the model and work on that part separately. Later the changes can be committed to the server, and shared with the rest of the development team. The Teamwork Server works much like a source code version control system.

 

Database Modeling Tool - You can design database schema using UML class diagrams and then generate its DDL code. If you want to analyze the structure of an existing database, you can reverse engineer it via a JDBC bridge.

 

Besides Spanish, MagicDraw development tool now comes in five other languages: English, German, Japanese, Korean and Thai.
