Enterprise Architect

It's a design tool and UML modeling easy-to-use. Also, has integration with some development environments that allows code generation. Also provides a wide documentation that is useful when you are using the application on the first times.

Pros

-It's based in the last UML version. - Excellent tool for software modeling, includes all the stages from the business modeling to the maintenance. - Provides a good management of models and artifacts, allowing to know what member of the team is on charge. - It's easy generate documentation for a client presentation or team meeting.

Cons

The interface seems very plane. Doesn't allow to change styles or fonts in the UI. Even the objects in the diagrams can't be much customized.

Enterprise Architect for comprehensive software design

I've used EA since 2005, although not consistently due to different tooling at various companies I've worked for. Recently I've been using the application for the last two years. It is a very comprehensive software modeling and design application suite. My primary usage of it has been to create UML 1.0 and 2.0 compliant diagrams and to model our software architecture artifacts, including database schemas. In the past, I have also used the tool to generate Java code which was a very useful feature. EA makes it easy to organize all of your software artifacts and provides good UML editors for creating and updating existing design diagrams and components. While there are some free alternatives out there for doing UML, I have not found one with the comprehensive set of features, ease of use and fairly low price point that EA has. It is my go-to tool for all software design documentation and description.

Pros

One stop shop for UML modeling of software and creating and maintaining database schema definitions, low price for all the features you get, ability to store data in the external database.

Cons

Windows only (unless you use a VM) - as a Mac user I need to use either Wine or something like VMWare to spin up a Windows VM which is not always an ideal user experience. I'd love to see a Mac version but I know that is probably unlikely with a feature set as large as EA has - it would take forever to port over. That said, I go to the trouble of emulating Windows still because the application is so useful.

Extremely difficult to use, restrictive, not functional

Horrible. Very difficult to use. Cannot add any symbols to a diagram.

Pros

Sequence diagram function to draw call flows. Some functions of the sequence diagram is good like pushing down the arrows.

Cons

too many to mention. Cannot copy diagrams between files. Did an export and import and I lost my imported file since it overwrites everything. The most stupid thing is it actually writes to the same filename during importing. It didn't ask if you want to save the imported file.

Great product

The best part of enterprise architect is the ease of use. I am guy who likes using shortcuts a lot when dealing with UML models and this tool fits the bill. With the available UI options, I can also conveniently present models to the SMEs within the tool itself. The makers seem to do a good job keeping up with the changing UML standards. That makes this tool reliable and accurate.

Pros

I like how easy it is to use this software to create different diagrams.

Cons

Customer support could have been better.
