I’ve evaluated the enterprise versions of VP-UML 5 and SDE for Eclipse 3 for a month now. But I’m not able to decide which version is the better one.
VP-UML is my favorite one but syncing the code automatically with Eclipse (Eclipse 3.1 on WinXP SP2) doesn’t work, so I’ve to update it manually everytime I switch to Eclipse.
SDE EC syncs automatically but there are some problems about the ui-handling. Examples: 1.) I have to push the expand button in the diagram navigator two times to expand the selected diagram. 2.) After changing a class or interface in the class diagram, select another one and then click “Select in Code” the changed classes java-file is activated instead of the selected class. It happens also if I click the tab of that selected file directly. After clicking the tab the changed file is automatically activated and will be synchronized with the model.
I think VP-UML is a bit more stable then SDE EC, isn’t it? So I would buy that one. But what’s your experience with VP-UML 5 / SDE for Eclipse 3?
