Eclipse Ganymede - UML2 Tools
Eclipse Ganymede supports the "UML2 Tools" which allows you to create UML diagrams. The Plugins are a contribution form Borland to the Eclipse community and they are very nice.
A good article about the UML2 Tools can be found here:
A problem for me was the installation of these plugins. If you follow the instructions :
you maybe can not see the new diagram types in your New-File wizzard.
This happens to me. The problem is that the new Eclipse Update Manager dose not show you missing plugins after you select the UML2 Tools from the Update Manager Category
"Ganymede -> Models and Model Development -> UML2 Tools"
As some people suggest it is not necessary to select the hole "Models and Model Development" Category.
In my case I get the UML2 run in Eclipse Ganymede after I added the following plugins form the section "Models and Model Development" :
- EMF - Eclipse Modeling Framework Runtime and Tools
- Graphical Modeling Framework Runtime
- UML2 Diagram Search Features
- UML2 Search
After adding these plugins UML2 Tools works fine!
I did not understand the new Update Manager in Eclipse Ganymede. It seems that the Updatemanager exames plugin dependencies but maybe this will not work in all situations.
