Hi

Is it possible to create an UML diagram in a standalone Java application? Could you point me out, where to start?

I don't need any editing or viewing capabilities. I need only to create a diagram and save it as an image-file (png, jpg, ...).

Hi Denis,


Papyrus has not been designed to work outside Eclipse. We use way too many extension points. So, Papyrus cannot be used in a standalone Java application.


Regards,
Camille

Hi

It's certainly possible.

The UML tutorials explain how to create a UML model.

Then you need to import is as a diagram and lay it out. With luck you
can use the code that lies behind Papyrus actions.

Then you need to save it as SVG. Again use Papyrus code.

In principle you only need small parts of Papyrus, but as Camille points
out Papyrus has not been designed for standalone usage, so you can
expect to have a fairly exciting time stubbing out irrelevant problem
functionality.

Ed Willink
