Delphi 8 for .NET's modeling tools use UML notation to graphically depict the design of a software system. In the UML, different activities undertaken during design are represented by certain types of diagrams. For example, you would define the user roles and system requirements in a use case diagram, while installation requirements would be defined on a deployment diagram. Designers capture the vocabulary of the system they are modeling in Static Structure, or Class diagrams; this is the type of diagramming surface integrated in Delphi 8 for .NET.
Note: This topic covers Delphi 8 for .NET's built-in UML modeling tools, which are based entirely on the ECO framework. For information on code visualization, and producing a class diagram from an arbitrary set of Delphi source code, please refer to the Code Visualization link at the bottom of this topic.
