I just installed it and it looks like solid and feature-complete, extensible software. It is far beyond many other open source tools that I tried. It has a native Windows UI, very clean and easy to use, resembles MS Visual Studio. Also try modules and template extensions available from their site. I have found a template to generate

At first glance I could not get copy and past of a text box to work, shame as the product looks great, and copy and pasting text boxes saves so much time resisting new boxes.

StarUML is awesome. Fast and feature rich. But the interface is kinda awkward to use - especially the popup property window.

Nice tool

I could still be a good software. I was looking for a way to draw sequence diagrams quickly, and I couldn't find a way to do this with StarUML.

Haha. See what the last one says and his rating. It is very good

It amused me a lot that you compared a UML tool with a drawing package. It shows a complete lack of understanding of UML and the process involved in designing using UML. The point of UML is that you are creating and relating objects. Diagrams are an aid to understanding and viewing the objects: not the point of the exercise. StarUML is a good tool.

I am very impressed by its prospects! Especially of it extensibility, API and customisation. It needs some work to dig in but it is worth :-)
The only negative fact is the lack of documentation and that it looks like that nobody is working on it anymore.
Anyway, I am working on some tools and templates which will use it!

Havn't started using it, just got it installed and "up n running". Encountered some problem when installing the app (Windows Vista SP2).
First time the install wizard crashed at the end of the process. Reinstalled it and then the program itself wouldn't start... :P So I removed it, reinstalled it again, and this time I didn't uncheck the "Run StarUML now"-checkbox (last step of install wizard), and got it up and running. :) Looks nice, reminds me of VS with the solution explorer(diagram explorer in StarUML) and everything...

StarUML works fine, but is no longer maintained :-(

Best open Source UML-Tool!

given by Anonymous on January 11, 2015

This software should be removed from this list, as it's no
longer open source, you're required to purchase it now. So
much for open source.
