Any tutorial available? [message #476073] Thu, 11 December 2008 12:48 Go to next message

Hi. I was used to teach OOP and Java Language at the University using
Eclipse plus EclipseUML Free Edition. but it seems Omondo has decided to
stop EclipseUML Free Edition support and development and UML2 Tools
seems the natural substitute.

The typical scenario my students should do is a UML Class Diagram
defining all the classes with their attributes, operations, relations,
etc... and then get automatically the Java skeletons to move into the
implementation. I have given a first try to UML2 Tools on Ganymede and
after some tests and after reading this forum and wiki, it seems that
could be the final idea of this project but its current state is not
enough mature from an usability point of view for such scenario in the
education context (learning OOP and Java Language).

But I was wondering if perhaps I was not doing things correctly. So that
is the reason of my post... is there any tutorial that explains how to
perform an scenario as the one described? I have already read
http://www.vogella.de/articles/UML/article.html one but it is very
basic, and I have found other posts asking same thing with no answer...

Thanks in advance,

Chemi.

If it's really just class diagrams, I might suggest you to try EMF.

www.eclipse.org/emf
help.eclipse.org/stable/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse.emf.doc /references/overview/EMF.html


EMF is *NOT* UML. So if you need the buzzword it can't help.. But if
not, you can probably do everything that you require in Ecore, EMF's
modeling language. I really have told people things like 'see here I
have a nice UML diagram', where it was actually Ecore. UML just sounds
more familiar to managers :-p

There are tools that allow graphical editing of Ecore models, I'm aware of:
