    Need recomendations for a UML tool.

    Hi,

    I'm starting to learn UML and at school we are using Rational Rose Enterprise edition.

    This is not exactly within my budget.

    I've searched and found quite a few, but ended up suffering information overload. All I want to be able to do is create the following:

    Use Case diagrams
    Class diagrams
    State diagrams
    Sequence diagrams

    Are there any free (open source) ones which look good?

    I'd really like to be able to generate C++ (and any other!) code with it, I know some of the tools can, but I couldn't find any for free.

    I plan to use this tool a lot over the next few months, so I really appreciate your recommendations.

    Thanks very much.

    If Rational Rose is not in your budget I doubt these will be either.

    If your budget means "free", there's ArgoUML. I never used it but seems competent enough.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
