Description of table columns

Follows a description of the less obvious column names:

  • Native - whether the tool uses UML2 as its native format. If UML2 is not natively supported, that means the user has to perform some sort of conversion step (e.g. import/export) in order for the tool to accept/provide UML2-compatible models.
  • Modeling - whether the tool supports modeling.
  • Code generation - whether the tool supports code generation.
  • Tool version - version of the tool when verified. If the tool has not been verified yet, it will be empty.
  • UML2 version - version of UML2 adopted by the tool when verified.
  • Notes - any quirks or comments about UML2 support in the tool.
