    Hi Andreas, thank you for the comment. I’ve visited your website, and saw your product that plugs into RationalRose. I appreciate the idea of OCL which supports constraints in a more natural way.

    Still, if you do not mind, I’d like to mention that GUI of RationalRose just sucks. I mean it. Handling objects in the panel, and setting properties are not intuitive at all. What do you say to supporting eclipse UML tools? just my one penny.

    Hi MKSeo,

    sorry for the late answer.
    Yes, Rose is really dated and cannot compete wit current UML tools. We are working on a new product that will be cross platform in the sense that it is based on XMI.
    For various reasons, it will be based on the .NET platform.

    Best regards,
