Advise on CASE tools for VisualStudio (Modelmaker for Delphi equivalent ?)

P: n/a

Hi,

I'm an ex-Delphi developer and I'm used to the ModelMaker Case tool for
Delphi. Now I'm starting a large project in C# and I need some help in
design.
I'm looking for case tools for VisualStudio.Net.
Any advise is welcome.

You get Microsoft Visio together in Enterprise edition of VSNET. But in case
you don't have that, you could use Enterprise Architectect and of course
Rational Rose (though that is expensive).

Just to add:
Enterprise Architect is a tool from Sparx systems.

Excellent UML round-trip case tool.

Thats right :)....it's pretty simple and very usable too...

Interesting to note that they store the data in Access mdb's...the data
model in that file could be a good thing to look into....

With VS.NET 2005 you have a nice class viewer, but no other UML views (it
isn't pure UML but it's the same concept as class diagrams/static
structures).

Visio EA is useful only for UML as a sketch [Fowler] IMHO.

Rational XDE is a very nice tool, but comes with a big price tag.

Coming from Borland (you) and all, I'd advise you to have a look at their
Together for VS.NET. Almost as good as XDE judging from my limited
experiences and is very cheap.

Warning! The first version was crappy, so don't be fooled by review of the
same.
