is there a program that can allows you to design objects hierarchy?

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I''m looking for that kind of program that allow me to design my object hierarchy and modify it easily in a tree-like structure; which are base classes, which are derived classes, what are the members, what they do, etc.. I''m tired of doing this on paper. I always end up with a dirty page full of notes, errors & corrections, misplaced lines, etc. I tried to clean them up by rewriting it, but still, everything always change during the development process. So, I end up with another dirty piece of paper full of notes, errors & corrections, etc..etc..etc.. If you know any program that can do the job, please let me know. Otherwise, I have to make it myself.

I think MS Visio does something like that, or maybe you should find out what UML means (someone told me about it and it sounded like a solution to the problem you currently have).

Yes, visio is a good solution here. Also take a look at Rational Rose... but that''s expensive and probably overkill.


Don''t listen to me. I''ve had too much coffee.

hey, thanks guys. I just looked up on amazon.com, $500 for MS-Visio Professional. Wow, that''s too much for me. Anyway, yeah, I read your thread, Michalson, and downloaded several programs people suggested. They are all awesome, just what I need. Thanks again, people.

If you think that 500 USD for Visio are too much, look at the price for rational.

Whasi t is not? 5000 USD? 6000?

This stuff is expensive, because few licenses are sold.

SmartDraw can do almost everything that Visio can, and it's a lot cheaper. Here's a tutorial on making UML diagrams (including class diagrams) with SmartDraw (www.smartdraw.com).

They've also got a free download that you can try.

We use a product called "Together", which seems to work pretty well, though you need a super machine to run it, because it''s entirely written in java and sucks up mucho resources. I don''t think they have a free version though, so you probably can''t use it anyway.
