UML to Code, Code to UML

With a clean slate, generate source code from UML class model or vice versa.

Java round-trip engineering

Java Round-Trip Engineering

Generate Java source code from UML class model, and let the UML model reflect the change you made in source code. Round-trip engineering helps keep your Java source code and software design synchronized. Every time you generate code or update UML model, changes will be merged.

C++ Round-Trip Engineering

Generate ANSI C++ source code from your UML class model, and let the UML model reflect the change you made in source code. Round-trip engineering helps keep your C++ source code and software design synchronized. Every time you generate code or update UML model, changes will be merged.

REST API generation

REST API Generation

REST, short for REpresentational State Transfer, is a lightweight architectural style used when designing networked applications. Web service APIs that conform to the REST architectural constraints are known as RESTful, or REST API. Visual Paradigm supports modeling the underlying communication model of REST API, as well as the generation of REST APIs and API documents.

Run in IDE

No switching applications, no hassle! Design and implement software within a single environment - your favorite IDE. With the UML editor seamlessly integrated into the IDE, you can focus on developing your great software comfortably. Just click once to update your code from UML design, click again to have your UML class model updated base on the source code.


UML modeling in IDE

Draw UML diagrams right in your favorite IDE. Visual Paradigm's award winning modeling environment can run within a variety of IDEs.


Popular IDEs supported (Eclipse/NetBeans/IntelliJ IDEA/Visual Studio)

Elevate your software development experience to a new level through the seamless integration with Eclipse, NetBeans, IntelliJ IDEA and Visual Studio.

Code generation and reversal, within IDE
Instant Code Generation/Reversal

Instant Code Generation/Reversal

Model the new system with UML class diagram, and then generate the source code for implementation. Use Instant Generator to generate source files from UML class diagram. You can also reverse engineer UML class model from source files.

Form Sequence Diagram from Java Code Logic

Study the runtime behavior of an application by mean of a UML sequence diagram. Visual Paradigm supports the reverse engineering of sequence diagram from Java source code.
