Elegant UML IDEs

An elegant UML diagram presents a breeze of experience for developers in creating complex software design patterns, architectures in a more comprehendable way. There are a lot of tools that help us in this perspective. The best editor that strikes our mind in this is Microsoft Visio. But for casual developers who are pricked by the price of the same there are some free IDEs available to learn UML.

A few of them are:

  1. ProxyDesigner from ProxySource [This has been really valuable tool. Unfortunately, ProxySource website is no longer available and a website hijacker seemed to have taken the domain. I have a version of ProxyDesigner with me. A search revealed an older version hosted with WinSite. Thank you, Winsite. Here is the link of the same.]
  2. Dia Editor (hosted at SourceForge)
A few more like MetaMill are available in Shareware flavor. If we are intending to purchase it after the desired period, I think these can be used.  For those interested, I would also like to share the UML QuickReference Card over here.
