The meaning and ideas you want to express can’t be seen through code editing alone, but creating diagrams can easily show your ideas. Thus, UML (Unified Modeling Language) has been used to solve the object-oriented problems for a long time, providing a common language among analysts, designers, and programmers for software design.

Astah (formerly called JUDE = Java and UML Developers’ Environment) is a fresh-new, lightweight, versatile, and professional UML modeling tool for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms, developed by ChangeVision from Japan, written in Java. It has a concise, intuitive, and easy-to-use user interface, and is able to quickly create visual UML models and diagrams, which can help users better understand system design, easier to understand the software development framework, and more clearly express their modeling ideas.

Astah integrates UML modeling and mind mapping capabilities in one place, supports the creation of flow diagrams, data flow diagrams, ER diagrams, CRUD diagrams, requirements diagrams, traceability maps, mind maps, and many other diagrams. It also supports all graphics defined in the UML specification, a variety of standard file formats, multiple programming languages, distributed modeling, project consolidation, interaction with other modeling tools, collaborative development, and many other useful functions. In short, it can meet all your UML modeling and diagram creation needs, so as to maximize your UML modeling and mind mapping efficiency.
