  • You can generate C# code from UML class diagrams if you also install Visual Studio 2010 Feature Pack 2 with Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate:

  • Thanks Esther for your quick reply.

    I tried generate code from class diagram. its awesome but it does not gets you business logic or flow. Its jst create skeleton of classes (methods , properties)

    how can i get business logic, association, flow transformed


    1. calling of methods from one function to another.

    2. loops, conditional statements

    Thanks in advance

  • There is not a way to generate the business logic with the code generation templates we shipped in the Feature Pack.  You can author your own templates along with using the UML API http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee329484.aspx
