Subject: re: UML Modeling
Message text written by "Nieman, Scott" >I will look at smartdraw as well. I am just concerned about the timeframes, learning curves and all that. Regards, Scott <<<<<<<<<<<< Smartdraw is incredably easy to install and learn, that's why I suggested it. I also think that while UML is good - it is in itself a MAJOR impediment to broad adoption here. In my lecturing around the country most people are EXTREMELY negative toward ANY kind of CASE, case, or Case (!) technology, bottom line - it has a really bad rap and people don;t want to go there again, even if it is "free"! My suggestion is that we use the UML experts as a resource to draw pretty pictures to document the results and decisions of the group. That way we are not tying ourselves to the wall. People can create written narative descriptions of what they see as important, and can review JPG pictures of diagrams and process flows. This should all be intuitive for everyone, and allow everyone to input content. It is important that we provide the ability to interact with Repository and other XML/edi content without any prerequisite for UML. DW.
