Hi all I have four classes and I would like to know if anyone is aware of a software package for windows that is capable of analysing my Java files and from there creating UML diagrams?

I think I had seen something to this nature but I would appreicate all of your advice and hopefully you can point me toward a solution.

The purpose if to increase productivity and reporting mechanisms for my work !

Many many thanks

Excellent response Javatm

ArgoUML looks very useful and Jug creates a diagram from the class itself,

I will just experiment for a short while to check which one is best
