News: Flowchart4j v2 Released! Code to Sequence Diagram to Visio - UML

  1. Flowchart4j v2, an Eclipse Plugin, generates Sequence Diagram and Control Flow Diagram by analyzing Java source code. Effectively reverse engineering a sequence diagrams from source code helps in retro-documentation, retro-conceptualization, understanding current business logic and proposing changes in the current business logic. V2.0 Features
    1. Generates Sequence Diagram
    2. Export diagram to Microsoft Visio as UML Model
    3. Save diagram as image(jpg)
    4. Sequence Diagram to Code Navigation
    5. Conditional Sequence diagram generation, using Control Flow
    V2 Demo | Download Trial Commercial: € 65/Node - Six Months Subscription. Let's discuss on the benefits and drawbacks. Also discuss on the usefulness of generating other UML artifacts such as Class Diagram, Activity Diagram etc.

    Is there open source/free alternatives to Flowchart4j?
  3. Re: Alternatives?[ Go to top ]

    Does demo version create squeance diagram from code??? I am looking for this functionality since long...any other good alternative for this??
  4. netbeans UML[ Go to top ]

    Netbeans UML can do this too, and it's free.
  5. Re: netbeans UML[ Go to top ]

    Thanks, I will look into that.
  6. Is there open source/free alternatives to Flowchart4j?
    jTracert is a free alternative for Flowchar4J It's hosted at google code: http://jtracert.googlecode.com/
  7. Visio? Why not support real UML modeling (not drawing) tools designed to support Java development? Why not Enterprise Architect, Rational, TogetherCenter, Magic, or the UML tool built into Eclipse? Why not XMI? I never liked Visio for UML, but when when they dropped Java support after Microsoft absorbed them, I quit all together. Enterprise Architect is cheaper an so much more capable. (I prefer it over Rational and the other over-priced competitors.) In any case, I don't want a bunch of stand alone drawings. I want the drawings connected to objects in a repository that I can reuse during the design, development and maintenance processes.
  8. Visio is Garbage[ Go to top ]

    I've tried repeatedly to use Visio and unfortuately I've always found it incredibily painful and unproductive to do so. I've still only found one decent diagramming application: http://www.omnigroup.com/applications/omnigraffle/.

    I feel your pain. I do not have the luxury to use a Mac so Omnigraffle is out of the picture. I use yEd (http://www.yworks.com/en/products_yed_about.htm) for most of my graphing needs. It is probably not anywhere near as versatile as Omnigraffle, but it does the job many times better than Visio. This one is Java/free, so it does not hurt nearly as much.
