Visual Thought

Jeremy Rayner’s June 15 blog entry directed me to another free drawing tool for UML diagrams. Thanks for the link!

p>Visual Thought is a drawing tool so it has the same advantages as Visio in that it’s not designed for MDA or for code generation, so you can happily use it for agile modelling. As I have some modelling to do over the summer as I rewrite my Client-Server Programming in Java Module, I’ll let you know how it goes!
