Welcome to the Joint-Venture Blog from Fabio Cortesi and Stefan Jäger.
With two co-workers from Zühlke, I wrote an article about an scalable Java EE scheduler. This article got published in the JavaSpektrum magazin 04/2009.
It’s written in German and can be downloaded here.
There are many UML tools out there. But if I want to draw just a simple UML 2.0 diagram without having a heavy model as background, I use Visio. Why? Because it’s just simple.
Unfortunately, the built in UML templates are not quite good. But fortunately, you can download UML 2.0 stencils for Visio from the internet. These stencil are perfectly UML 2.0 conform and helps to draw simple UML diagrams.
I just found a really good Quick Reference sheet about the Design Patterns from the GoF (Gang of Four). Have a look at this blog.
