MyEclipse 7 introduces early support for drawing in UML 2 - such as the drawings below. These capabilities will continue to evolve, to match the more complete UML capbilities currently found in our long standing UML1 feature set. An example of capablities still to come is the two-way code/UML generation that is currently in our UML1 feature set.
Editor supports multiple UML 2 diagrams:
Our UML 2 editor allows you to create and edit nine different types of UML 2 diagrams.
Composite Structure Diagram
Use Case Diagram
State Machine Diagram
Use the outline view to easily navigate the diagram, graphically or structurally.
Selecting an existing element allows you to further modify it in a tabbed property view. A few properties are shown below.
Use the validation action to validate your UML 2 model. Errors and warnings will be displayed in the diagram, Outline and Problems view.
The UML 2 editor toolbar contains all the features you need to create visually appealing diagrams. The ability to automatically layout
diagrams aesthetically will be added shortly.
Further control is possible through an element's context menu and the Graphics tab in the Properties view.
Graphics Property Tab
Use the UML 2 preferences to specify the default styling for UML 2 entities.
