The Chime object oriented design tool
IntroductionThis application is a basic Object oriented design tool that will enable easy OO modeling using the Unified Modeling Language.
Main FeaturesThe main features of the application are...
Source code for the ooDesignTool is available at the sourcecode download section
The ooDesignTool is available as a single ready to run executable jar file.
I have tested it with the 1.6u1 Java runtime environment. (There is a bug with the JRE 1.4.2 which does not allow loading of binary data from a .jar file. As this functionality is needed for the icons please run it with 1.6u1)
The Binary can be download here ooDesignTool.jar (Right-click and save link as...)
An example model file to load up can be found here (Right-click and save link as...)
Quick start (Display a model in 4 steps)
- Download the .jar file and example mdl file
- From a command line, navigate to the folder containing the .jar file
- Execute the command, "java -jar ooDesignTool.jar"
- After the GUI has started, select file->Open Model... and open the downloaded model file
ScreenshotsBelow are some screenshots to give you an idea of what the application looks like when running.

I will be producing some more in depth guides to working with ooDesignTool in the near future
I will be releasing the source code for this application under an Open Source Licence also in the near future
