UML – Design by picture
Most professional software designer use or at least know UML, the unified modelling language. By means of a formal visual language, software designer describe software systems. Having it roots around 1994 at Rational Software Corporation, UML finally became 2005 an ISO/IEC standard. Today, UML 2.x is able to describe functional, structural and dynamic system properties.
Tool chains for UML
While describing software systems during the specification or development phase of a software project, is a value by itself (customers are able to understand certain parts of UML), UML is even more useful with a well prepared tool chain. Users of Eclipse or Netbeans can easily add such a tool chain to their preferred IDE and generate code out of UML. Today, JAVA is probably best integrated with UML tool chains. But I even saw a generator for PHP.
A Flex tool chain for UML
The GUI of gModel ist straight and fast. Best of all this tool exports XML, HTML Doc, ASDoc, StubCode and AS 2.0 StubCode.
Give it a try and launch gModeler now! It’s nice – but probably largely unknow to the Flex community.
