Eclipse again- UML!!
I was asked of my opinion on a modeling tool by one of the research groups before they jump and purchase rational rose. I already knew the Eclipse SOA guys have done significant work in this direction. EMF and eclipse UML2 had quite a bit of development in this direction but the I found this product which had everything nicely packaged and of course its free. Its a product called Omondo and worth downloading. The class diagram posted here is done using the tool and it impressed me. It threw exceptions once in a while, oh well I should fix at least one bug before start complaining.

Few days ago I visited my Woden and WSDL Working group collegues at IBM Toronto and Arthur Ryman was so nice to arrage a visit to Niagara on the second day. It was once in a lifetime experiance to withness such a massive mass of water (over half a million gallons per second) falling down over 150 feet. Next time i am gonna go i am sure to be ready to get wet. You don't need to go in the boat ride to get wet, I got wet badly at the top of the fall from the rain like dripping from the moisture generated by the fall. It is an experiance of a lifetime.
