simpleUML for IDEA 8.0

Are there any plans to updgrade simpleUML to work with IDEA 8.0? It doesn't seem to work with 8769. "Add to simpleUML diagram" menu item creates a new diagram but does not add the class to it.

Thanks.

Hello Chris,

Are there any plans to updgrade simpleUML to work with IDEA 8.0? It
doesn't seem to work with 8769. "Add to simpleUML diagram" menu item
creates a new diagram but does not add the class to it.


Now that IDEA includes built-in UML support, what would be the point of upgrading
SimpleUML?

Hi Dmitry.

Unless I'm overlooking something, I don't see a way to add dependencies to a class in the diagram. In simpleUML, I can right-click and select the Add->Dependencies context-menu item.

In simpleUML, I can also add and remove arbitrary classes to and from a diagram without changing the source code. This is useful if I'm discussing a pattern in existing code with a colleague and want to show an elided set of classes rather than all the classes that participate in the pattern.

Along the same lines, in simpleUML I can start a diagram with a single class and build up a custom diagram by adding only the subclasses and superclasses that I want in the diagram.

The built-in UML support in Diana looks promising and I'm sure it will evolve into something meets my needs. I just want to keep my current capabilities (with simpleUML) until it does.

IDEA is a great product. Thanks for all your hard work on it.

Chris,
You can add/delete elements from UML diagram using delete button or DnD from
any view(project/package/etc). Also, it's possible to expand classes from
and collapse classes to a package (buttons E and C). Space button will
probably be very useful. It selects all classes in the package the selected
class belongs to. Dependencies and associations are comming soon...

Hi Konstantin.

Thanks for the information. That is good news and will obviate my need for simpleUML.

How do I bring up the UML diagram in the first place?

Make sure UML Support is enabled (it's enabled by default). Go to popup menu
on any view or popup on source editor, select Show Class Diagram. Or just
CtrlShiftAlt+U

Konstantin -

I don't seem to have that option in either the project view popup or the source editor popup (see attachments). Also, Ctrl-Shift-Alt-U doesn't seem to do anything, and if I go to the Keymap preference panel, and search for "uml", there are no results.

I am using build 8823. How can I check that UML Support is in fact enabled?
