Once again I'm working on a project and I'm wondering what tools people use for visualisation of their classes?

I can see that Xcode has the class modeller but I believe that is currently read only. Are there other tools out there which will help me generate the class files from the model?

I use good old pen and paper. I think I've heard of some IDE for Java that can turn UML into class skeletons, though. I'm not sure what it was called, if it even exists.

BlueJ has a visualizer for your class heirarchy, though I can't recall how close to UML the diagrams actually are. I used it a few times, and it just seemed to indicate basic composition and relations to unit tests.

Hello,

In most IDE you have a class browser. Often it shows the list of classes on the application your are developing, but not their relationship.

I know Bouml, which you can use to model your classes and generate codes to different languages. It can do also reverse-engineering, that is build a classes diagram from the source code.

I have never seen so far a tool that allows you to explore your classes, modify the models and at the same time the code seamlessly. I am feeling the need for such tool too.
