Sharing the same Project

Hi,
I’m a project development leader actually working for www.ldsosf.com.br.
I considered to the director of the company the purchases of version 3.0
of Visual-Paradigm for UML Standard Edition (We work with VFP8 development
tool).
But before is important to resolv a question:
The problem is that we need to work in team in the same project.
How to share alterations in same document VPP?

For example:
I need to make changes in some use case diagrams
and , at the same time, other team component needs to make changes in some
class diagrams.

Hi Eduardo,

Thank you for trying our product. At the moment, the feature that you have mentioned does not exist in VP-UML but will be in the future involving a server component.

Hi Masi,

“in the future” means anytime within a few months. At the moment, our UML tools works and supports the UML 2.0 notation. The team-work server solution shall be available soon.

We are also evaluating this tool for use by a team. We use IntelliJ IDEA and a couple of us have installed the SDE-IJ Professional trial version.

What we’d like to be able to do eventually is:

  1. Work on our individual machines doing design work with SDE-IJ and coding with IDEA.
  2. Check any changes into CVS
  3. Get the latest changes from CVS each time we make a change.

Is this easily done with your product?

Some other questions I have :

  • In March you’d mentioned that a server version might be available in a few months. Where does this stand at the moment? Will this help in the scenario above?

  • Is a newer version than is currently available due out soon? How often do you release new versions? If I buy the current version, what is the cost of upgrading in the future? Are there free upgrades for a period of time?

  • The entire development organization, which includes non-java development groups are looking at UML tools. We’d like to standardize on a single UML tool across the organization. Do the discounts apply if you mix SDE with the VP-UML standalone versions?

Thanks for your help,

Damon
