Bottom Line

ArgoUML's user interface is divided into 4 panels: Top left: a hierarchical view of the current project file, Top right: editor for the selected part of the project, in this case a class diagram, Bottom left: the designer's "to do" list and Bottom right: details of the selected object in the diagram or the selected "to do" item.

The drawing window is the main window where people can create diagrams. Using “details pane” of ArgoUML, users can depict their diagram items and link them with elements. The modeling process of ArgoUML is intuitive and smooth. Another feature of ArgoUML is the presence of checklist for every component of a model. Class models are influenced by generation.
