Accessibility of the web-based features

The Visual Paradigm product family has two client products: Visual Paradigm ("VP Desktop") and Visual Paradigm Online ("VP Online"). Visual Paradigm is a traditional desktop application that can be downloaded and run in your operating system, while Visual Paradigm Online is a modern zero-configuration service that runs on a web browser.

Although the two products are fundamentally different, they are related in a way that some of the VP Desktop features rely on the web technologies provided by VP Online in order to function. The table below summarizes the features involved, with respect to the editions of VP Desktop in which they are supported.
