A free and open source tool written in Java that enables users to model and draw UML diagrams and export them to PNG and SVG image files
Be carefull, because PlantUML does not prevent you from drawing inconsistent diagrams (like having two classes inheriting from each other, for example). So PlantUML is more a drawing tool than a modeling tool.
Additionally, PlantUML is a component that allows to quickly write :
· sequence diagram,
· use case diagram,
· class diagram,
· activity diagram,
· component diagram,
· state diagram
Diagrams are defined using a simple and intuitive language. They can be generated in PNG or SVG format.
