QuickUML 3.0 adds PHP
Excel Software recently unveiled QuickUML 3.0, an update to its Unified Modeling Language programming software, adding new features and functionality. Users can now generate PHP code in addition to C++, Java, Delphi, and Objective-C. New presentation features allow for class-definitions of operations, properties, and events, with customized color, access, data type, and visibility options. Users can view an entire project in a multi-pane window, where work is saved as a platform-independant XML formatted text file. New users can purchase QuickUML 3.0 for $300 directly from Excel Software.
QuickUML uses case descriptions linked to models, code, and foreign documents, while class and package diagrams can be displayed with rich presentation options. The software includes sequence diagrams to model object interactions, and can navigate, print, level, validate, and export diagrams. QuickUML includes a dictionary with design namespaces, stereotypes, text imports and exports.
