NetBeans UML - plugin detail

With NetBeans UML modeling, your designers focus on the design of the application, and your developers focus on the code. First, designers and analysts design applications using UML, a standard modeling language, then developers generate source code from the UML model. Of course it works both ways: You can also update the model from changes made in the source code.

Introduction

NetBeans UML is available via the NetBeans Stable Update Center. Learn how to add a module to the NetBeans IDE.  See the NetBeans UML Home Page for complete details.

With NetBeans UML, your designers focus on the design of the application, and your developers focus on the code. First, designers and analysts design applications using UML, a standard modeling language, then developers generate source code from the UML model. Of course it works both ways: You can also update the model from changes made in the source code.

UML Diagram Types
You can create 8 UML diagram types: Activity, Class, Sequence, State, and Use Case.  NetBeans UML also supports the Dependency diagram showing all the dependencies for a Classifier on the diagram: Generalizations, Associations, Implementations, and Operations.

Forward and Reverse Engineering
You can generate Java code from your model as well as create UML models from your existing Java source. The code generated by the UML module is markerless, that is free of any artificial comments or tags introduced solely to support code generation.

Enhanced Workflow
Create Javadoc style web reports from your model allowing your work to be easily shared with others. There is a full set of predefined and extensible design patterns including EJB 1.1, EJB 2.0 and Gang of Four (23 patterns).

Download Unavailable?

When I click the download button, I get an error saying the page does not exist. Is this a temporary issue, or is it permanently down?

Is there a version for netbeans 7.4 ?

On the main url you gave, I don't see neither the version for 7.3 nor for 7.4

Did I miss something ?

@tomzi: Yes it seems this project is open source

And the best news is, this project is being updated and support for 7.3 is already there. Only this plugin page is not being maintained (maybe some license issue?)!

Open Source?

Is the UML plugin Open Source - can someone else take over the code to make it ready for 7.3?
Can you put a link to this site to the source code?

For Netbeans 7.x

There is a post on stakoverflow that indicates how to install this plugin on Netbeans 7.1. It works for 7.3 as well.

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6944002/uml-plugin-for-netbeans-7-0

(copied from stackoverflow)

Here is how to install on 7.1 (should also work for 7.0)

Add a new configuration to update centers: Tools -> Plugins -> Settings -> Add

As the URL copy the following into the textbox: http://dlc.sun.com.edgesuite.net/netbeans/updates/6.9/uc/m1/dev/catalog.xml

Now on the tab Available Plugins there should be UML in category UML

yWorks Suggestion from M.W. Johnson

The yWorks UML Doclet tool is generating UML diagrams in my JavaDocs with NetBeans 7.0.1 with Java 1.6 on the 1st try! Thank you M.W. Johnson, great suggestion.

NetBeans 7.x Support and Getting UML Diagrams

So after reading a bunch of the internet, the team responsible for the plugin is working on it, but it isn't done yet. They have decided to start over because the old code is unsustainable, which is why it doesn't work with 7.x.

Nevertheless, people want UML Diagrams, so below is a link to my blog, which provides a way of getting UML Diagrams of your classes from NetBeans 7.x.

http://imagine.kicbak.com/blog/?p=58

You cannot generate code from diagrams with my solution, but you CAN generate UML Diagrams in your JavaDocs from your classes in your project.

Why?? "The UML plugin for the NetBeans IDE is available for version 6.7 and earlier releases."

NetBeans UML Home Page (indicated on this page as http://netbeans.org/features/uml/index.html) says above explanation below its screenshot.

I don't understand what the reason is to give up supporting such a great project?

Is there something commercial to get this decision?

Netbeans 7 ?

Great and very useful tool. I would like to use UML plugin with Netbeans 7? It will be possible? If so, when?

very useful!

it's nice to have a native uml tool in netbeans. So I can update my IDE and be sure to have the tool updated too.

What is with uml plugin for NetBeans 6.9

Is there any chance that UML plugin will be available for NetBeans 6.9? If yes so when?

Still supported?

Is this UML plugin still supported in Netbeans 6.8? I've always liked it but cannot find it in the update center.
Posted by jason3421 on Apr 21, 2010
  

It does not work on Netbeans6.8

The diagram can not be displayed while the xml files of diagram are still there.

Offline/Manual installation - how?

Having followed the instructions below (ie unzipping the linked file into the Netbeans install folder), the IDE does not seem to think the plugin has been installed. What other steps are required? I'm using Netbeans 6.5.

re: offline installation

Thanks for the link sergyp. I've downloaded it and unzipped it into the Netbeans installation folder, what steps are now required? Thanks so much for the quick response just now.

Right, ok, this doesn't seem to be working then. Has anyone else managed to successfully install the UML plugin offline/manually? Thanks!

if you have uml6 folder on the same level as platform etc, it should be available without any additional action.

try e-mail aliases

it may be better to ak on nbusers@netbeans.org and users@uml.netbeans.org aiases
if you are not subscibed to any, it's good to mention it in e-mail. so your e-mail will be more likely added to CC section.

Apologies. Whenever I refresh this page, a new duplicate comment seems to appear (I can't figure out why)

Integration to DOORS 8.3

I tried to integrate the UML module with Telelogic DOORS 8.3. After changing the files configDoors.vbs and GetProjectInfo.dxl I can list all the project in the UML Design Cente. If I select a project, a get a message:

Please loginto DOORS before starting UML modeling.

Tough I am already logged in the DOORS. I checked the GetProjectInfo.dxl and GetFolderContents.dxl and I believe that these do not cause this problem.

Please if anybody tried that and succeeded, it would be interested to know. Thank you.

Re: Doesn't work NetBeans UML module

This appears to be an instance of Issue 122186. Please see the following FAQ for a workaround:

Re: No Manual Install Option

Sorry for the delay. There appears to be no notification when comments are posted.

At the bottom of the Download page, there is a link to NetBeans source and binary builds available in zip file format. Foe example, 6.0.1 zips are available here:

http://download.netbeans.org/netbeans/6.0/final/zip/

The UML zip is available under moduleclusters:

http://download.netbeans.org/netbeans/6.0/final/zip/moduleclusters/netbeans-6.0.1-200801291616-ml-uml.zip

After downloading the zip, you can extract into you netbeans install directory.

Does'nt work NetBeans UML module

I have installed Netbeans UML via Update Center. But it does'nt work. The error message a got from Module Manager -> UML -> Core Modeling Library -> Properties. The "Problems" text is: "The module named org.netbeans.modules.uml.tomsawyer/1 was needed and not found". Where I can find this module? It is not be in list of modules in "UML" modules list...

No Manual Install Option

Unfortunately, I have no access to the Netbeans Update Center. It would be nice if the module was downloadable for manual installation.

A very useful pack

Thank for the job, I was working with Rational Rose for 10 years before it disappears :)
All seems to be OK, but I just have a look for the moment.
I 'm going to evaluate it to use it with my students.
Q : It seems that in 'sequence diagram' you can only choose between 2 types of message.

I hope you're looking for UML 2, OCL, ...

So Cool of the NetBeans UML

I decided to transfer from Eclipse to NetBeans, because I can found a good and free modeling plug-in in Eclipse. I like the add-on so much.
