Recently I wanted the good and fancy UML editor for NetBeans 6.8 to display the class diagram of our twitter search jetwick, but I couldn’t find it in the update center.
The solution seems is simple. I clicked here and got the zip called netbeans-6.8-200912091457-ml-uml.zip which needs to be extracted into your NetBeans installation. After this I was able to create an UML project from the project menu:
I created a project to reverse-engineer my java project where even maven (jar or war) was possible. Look here:
But at the time of NetBeans 6.5 the packages were filled with content! Now they are empty and no class diagrams can be easily generated from source code 😦
The import of the java files seems to work, because if I right click the project I could create a model report with all my classes and its dependencies.
Do you know my mistake? I just wanted to create a class diagramm from my project.
Update: There seems to be no solution for NetBeans 6.8. See StackOverflow.
Update2: No, wait. Read this.
