    UML Diagraming

    ooba Level 1
      Has anyone come across any free tool out there that can take an Action Script class and generate UML diagrams from them?

      Microsoft Visio hosed my UMLs and I do not want to recreate them by hand.

      Please post links. Thanks all.

          I'm sorry but I cannot find anything on that web site that mentions anything about creating AS from UML or creating UML from AS. Please specify where on that site it mentions the ability to generate UML or reverse engineer them.

          Thanks.

            Don't really know any good "free" UML tool, but you can try latest version
            of Enterprise Architect - now they support AS.

              Yes, I downloaded the trial the effort on that part is getting my empolyer to purchase anything.

              That is why I am trying to find something that is free. Dont know which battle is worse, trying to find a free one or getting employer to buy the darn thing. :(

                    okay,

                    It would appear that there is NOTHING out there as of right now that is free and able to do this UML to code and vise versa functionality.

                    However everyone note that http://argouml-actionscript3.tigris.org/ is in an early design phase that will support the generation of AS3 code so keep an eye on that.

                    In the mean time was FORCED to purchase http://www.sparxsystems.com.au/products/ea_purchase.html professional version $200.00.
