Wolfgang Fellger | UML


Taking the risk of sounding backwards: What exactly is so great about using UML tools to develop a class model?

Don't get me wrong: They are nice for visualizing a rough model of classes and how they interact which each other. But when it comes to defining methods and attributes, the workflow is typing

public Data load(String location);

versus (in Visual Paradigm):

Yeah, I can feel my productivity skyrocket...

I am now typing up my class definitions in the old fashioned way and import them into the UML tool.

Is this the way it's meant to be? I doubt it.

Update: A fellow student and self-proclaimed VP guru just informed me that there is Add>Operation in the context menu which is a lot better. Thanks!
