Is there any program/plug-in out there that can turn a java project into a UML diagram?

I'd like to visually see how the java classes of a program connect together through inheritance and interfaces and I was wondering if there is a program or plug-in that can take all the sub-directories of a java project and construct a visual UML diagram?

Btw, I'm currently using the latest version of Netbeans.

Netbeans does some UML but you might need to download a plugin (it's in the third table in the above link).
