Hi all,

Could someone help me on how can I generate UML diagram from my existing Java source/classes? Is there any good plugin that would allow me to do it? I will appreciate any suggestion.

Thanks,

In think the MoDisco project would be able to help with that.

The creation of UML diagrams from a java code is called "reverse engineering ".
You can use the following options:
- use of the Modisco plugin and code inside what you need
- create an EMF model and then transform it to UML (Papyrus, Topcase, UML 2 tools)
- map the code to the metamodel (e.g. Omondo)

I think that the ultimate stage is to directly map your java code to your model & metamodel.
I have written a documentation on this subject: http://www.forum-omondo.com/documentation_eclipseuml_2008/re verse/reverse/reverse_engineering_example.html
