Visual Paradigm Professional Edition is a powerful and full-featured UML tool that will help you draw use case diagrams for modeling system functions. The application supports and provides everything you need for organizing and identifying system requirements via use case analysis. By using this tool you will also be able to manage use cases (with the grid function) and write new ones (thanks to the flow of events editor).
Visual Paradigm Professional Edition provides a set of versatile and flexible documentation utilities that will let you create content-rich and professional-look system specifications and documentation. The program is able to support all types of UML and SysML diagrams, offering you powerful modeling support. In addition, the program will prevent you from making accidental change on your model. This is done by performing an Impact analysis for ensuring the completeness of design.
Visual Paradigm Professional Edition also lets you use "flow of events" for analyzing how user goals can be accomplished. The "flow of events" is a technique that lets you analyze the cooperation between system and user in accomplishing use cases.
Another technique that Visual Paradigm lets you use is Impact analysis. This feature will let you discover possible influences that may occur when updating a design blueprint. The Impact analysis prevents unexpected consequences that may result by updating your design blueprint. You can perform three types of impact analysis in Visual Paradigm Professional Edition: analysis diagram, chart and matrix.
Visual Paradigm Professional Edition supports UML and SysML and allows you to easily write your own document templates with custom styles and layouts. The resulted documents can be exported and saved as PDF, HTML or MS Word files.
Visual Paradigm also lets you draw requirement diagrams in order to specify and analyze system requirements. This lets you define a way to test the requirements and establish users' needs in detail. The requirements can be also related with proper connectors.
Visual Paradigm Professional Edition lets you perform code and database engineering using Java and C++. The program supports reverse engineering and code generation in more than 10 different programming languages. By using this tool you will be capable of generating databases, patching a database or creating full executable DDL files directly from your ERD. You can also reverse engineer ERD from a legacy database.
Visual Paradigm Professional Edition enables you to define keywords used in project for better understanding the vocabulary utilized within a project and among the development team members and final users. The program provides a Glossary where you can define and add new terms and phrases.
You can use Visual Paradigm Professional Edition as a standalone application, or you can integrate it with and IDE (Integrated Development Environment). The program can run inside Visual Studio, NetBeans, IntelliJ and Eclipse. By doing this, you will be able to review your software architecture described in UML directly from your IDE. You can also generate code and perform code reversal within a single environment.
Visual Paradigm Professional Edition also provides tools for easy modeling and diagramming, allowing you to create diagrams in order to improve your modeling efficiency by minimizing re-work. The model quality will be improved as well.
Visual Paradigm provides an adequate environment for collaboration, allowing you and your colleagues to work as a team using the Visual Paradigm Teamwork Server, CVS, ClearCase, SVN, or Perforce. These tools offer the capability of discussing and sharing designs on the Web.
Visual Paradigm also lets you import and migrate a wide range of drawing and modeling tools, allowing you to easily develop you models without restarting your project from scratch.
