About the UML modeling environment in Visio

The UML Model Diagram template in Microsoft Office Visio provides full support for creating object-oriented models of complex software systems. It includes the following tools, shapes, and functionality:

  • The UML Model Explorer, which provides a tree view of your model and a means of navigating from one view to another.

  • Predefined intelligent shapes that represent the elements in the UML notation and support the creation of the UML diagram types. The shapes are programmed to behave in ways that are consistent with the UML semantics.

  • Easy to access UML Properties dialog boxes where you can add names, attributes, operations, and other properties to UML elements.

  • The ability to reverse engineer projects created in Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 or Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 to generate UML static structure models.

  • The ability to reverse engineer projects created in Microsoft Visual Studio. NET and generate UML static structure models.
