Thanks for the short intro on BOUML.

I was trying to use netbeans's UML for

C++ reverse engineering, but that does

not exist.

BOUML is great, although it does not

have any eclipse plugin.

Thanks

sguha.


nice presentation


Good, short, straight to the point.

This works with C++ too.

Hi,

I also thanks the author of this video.

Let me just say a lot of new features was added since March 2009, including to draw class diagrams, and I also added video tutorials you can find on documentation web page ( http://bouml.sourceforge.net/documentation.html ) including how to reverse/roundtrip Java code. Because my (French) accent is not good as 'TheBoss' I don't speak but use written sentences in them ;-)

Best regards and happy modeling

Absolutely perfect, the doc did not help me much unlike this video. Thanks for that.


Nice small screen cast on BoUML tool. Helped me figure out

how to get the class diagram view of the reverse engineerd java code. It was not clear from the help.

Great little tutorial which allowed me to get the job done.


Thank you for posting this tutorial.

I could extract the UML diagram by reverse engineering very easily.

Great presentation, Is there also one for seqence diagrams? I have som difficulties with Reflexive messages drawing.

Greats from Holland.


Thank you, Very well done.

The documention that comes with Bouml is a little confusing.

Thanks a lot for your video. It was very useful, to understand immediately what was not so clear fron the standard documentation. In fact I expected that the Calss Diagrams were a result if the reverse sw engineering.

Thanks a lot again

thans -

how to do it on linux - finally !


15. anonymous Sun, 08 Nov 2009 21:12

Thankyou! Your cast literally helped me learn to use what I needed out of bouml! I have'nt yet found Bouml's documentation to create class diagrams :). I now can create class diagrams for my thesis document from my code (yahoooo)!!

It's really worth watching and i am very thankful to you for keeping such a nice piece of work on web.

It inspire me to do the same thing in future.

Thank you

thanks! that did healped :)


12. anonymous Wed, 19 Aug 2009 17:36

Thanks for getting me started


11. anonymous Sun, 02 Aug 2009 17:33

This was awesome!!

Thanks for putting it together.

Thanks for the BOUML video. I think there is a big lack of introduction videos like yours. The problem is that anyone need UML, but the entrerprise software is not on everyones budget.

Keep it goin

Awesome video guys, busy getting into my UML again, used to enjoy it at college, now I need it for work. Feel free to email any sites that might help. Appreciate it. Thanks again


8. anonymous Wed, 08 Jul 2009 08:35

Good tut - concise and to the point


7. anonymous Thu, 02 Jul 2009 12:35

Thanks - useful overview.

PS. I live in Toronto too, small world!

Thank you for posting this tutorial.

here are some sugestions what you could improve next time.

The title is reverse engineering with bouml and what I get is how I draw a class diagram. This is at least confusing.

I miss a clear structure like let's draw a class diagram.

You say two windows will open, without naming them. Then you close one and with a short notice you close the second one with a remark I configured my project hierarchy already. What can I learn except that I will never be able to run the example.

Thank you again

Harald


nice intro to bouml


Thank you very much this is INVALUABLE to know and learn!


Very nice little taster - every now and then I remember how cool the UML concept is and play around with some software - this is next on my list. And while I'm at it, I can't help thinking some general UML screencasts would be very cool. Thanks.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for TheBoss
