ArgoUML is the leading open source UML modeling tool and includes support for all User documentation On Windows or Mac: Double-click on Argo’s Javadocs Tab allows you to enter documentation on the selected design element. Extract all files from to a folder. Double click. The documentation () is impressive with different formats of a quick start and a user manual ( pages!) that.

We must then give a more detailed specification of each use case. Experience seems to suggest that the iterations will divide in the ratio of around 1: The object is usually highlighted when the mouse button is pressed and then activated when the mouse button is documentztion.

If plugins are installed, then their functions appear here. To do the work we need the design model, containing both static and dynamic descriptions of the program. Training time, style and detail of help system. The new extension point will be inserted immediately before the entry over which the pop-up menu was invoked. Market Context or Contractual Arrangements. Selecting the “Multiple pages” option does print unscaled, by dividing the diagram in pieces, on as many pages as needed.

Welcome to ArgoUML

Most useful where the use case is one of a series of subsidiary use cases that are included in a main use case, where they can form the pre-conditions of the next use case to be included. Once again the recursiveand iterative nature of our process means we will come back to the Build phase many times in the future. Finally, since use cases are functional in nature, we need a document to capture the non-functional requirements capacity, performance, environmental needs etc.

The output of this process is the set of files that constitute the program that solves the problem.

Give it a try and look into the magic of Argo. The “explorer” pane shows relationships between diagrams and design items according to the selected perspective. Neither the hardware nor the software shall be considered the independent variable, but rather they shall be considered equal. The procedure for adding generalizations, is the same as for adding extend relationships, but using the generalization icon from the editing pane toolbar.


ArgoUML User Manual

The popularity of object based and object oriented graphical languages such as Visual Basic and Java reflect the effectiveness of this approach. You can see the generated results as you are building your class and the generating process influences the design assistance. As a result many but not all actions that can be carried out on the menu can be carried out in other ways as well under ArgoUML. This captures the alternative scenarios, as linear flows, by reference to the argoyml flow.

This menu-item is downlighted unless the currentproject has been saved or loaded before i. There are others, but they are less widely used.

The property tab can then be selected in the details pane. Do not use the properties window dialog fields—they are not dofumentation functional and liable to cause you a little frustration.

ArgoUML – Open Source Unified Modeling Language UML Tool

The only diagram is the use case diagram, showing the relationships between use cases and actors. We use the UML package diagram to organize the components of argoumll project. This saves the project using its current file name. The default filter is the first one, which combines all available formats. Its use within ArgoUML is then described.

Currently, the languages German deEnglish enSpanish esFrench fr and Russian ru are supported. An employee actor may be involved in both, one as an employee, but the other in a role as manager. Some of these arggouml commands can be invoked by pressing key combinations, as indicated on the drop-down menu. Dragging the handle at the top to another use case will create a generalization. First everything in the explorer and on the current diagram is deselected, and then everything that is on the current diagram is selected and if the same items apear in the explorer, then they are also there indicated as selected, because they are always synchronised.

In our ATM example so far we have just three use cases to describe all the behavior of the system.


It runs on any Java platform and is available in ten languages. This shows all the artifacts created within the UML design.

In fact, this works the same as for the explorer pane, because both are tree structures. If you want to learn some details about how the project is run and how you should go about to contribute go the the ArgoUML Web Site Developer Zone and read through the documentation there. The only part of the requirements notation specified by the UML standard is the use case diagram.

The Folder drop-down control. This is the right option if you intend using ArgoUML regularly and is not that difficult. The original use case is the specializing end, and the use case to which the handle was dragged will be the generalizing end.

Designers must manually enter designs, but the primary difficulty is decision-making rather than data-entry. Very likely they use different language and notation in their underlying use case specifications. This depends on the size of project. These changes were mostly to adopt the manual to the new functions and appearance of ArgoUML version 0. If not all classes will be replaced.

When this menu-item is activated, a small confirmation dialog box opens, as shown in the figure below. We now have our design fully specified. This has led to the development of a number of lightweight variants of processes often known as agile computing or extreme programming that are suited to very small teams of engineers. The recommendation is that a use case diagram should use the documentation tab of actors to record information about the actor, or if the actor is complex to refer to a separate document that holds information about the actor.

However there is no way to change its fill color from the default white.
