Umplification Tooling

The Umplificator is a reverse engineering tool for the incremental automatic detection of opportunities for refactorings and model transformations in source code consisting of Umple or an Umple base language such as Java.

To transform a program written in Java into Umple you can use one of the following tools:

  • Eclipse: To use the Umplificator with Eclipse, you need to load the the Umplificator plugin (cruise.umplificator.eclipse.X.X.X.jar). This can be obtained from our downloads site.

  • Command-line based compiler: You can use the Umplificator from the command line. Simply download the latest officially released version of the umplificator jar, and run it as "java -jar umplificator.jar *.java".
  • Note that it is also possible to umplify files with extension ".ump".
