UML Tool for Fast UML Diagrams.

If you want a tool that robustly enforces UML syntax or has the latest UML language elements or SysML profile, then this is not the tool you want.  However, if you need a way of developing a quick concept without going through endless rigour and data dictionary definition, then this is a fantastic option. The most common model elements are all there and you can annotate all the class elements, associations, relations, etc.  that you need.

I have used this twice now to rapidly develop a diagram to convey a systems concept for which UML syntax is an obvious choice, but didn’t have the time to use Rhapsody or EA. Less cumbersome (and expensive!) than Visio – its easy to cut/paste the diagram as a bit map and quick to load up and modify. Can be used stand alone or as a plug-in to the Eclipse SDE. I have only used it standalone, so can’t comment on its use within Eclipse.
