Generating UML diagram from Java source code

Sometimes we may need to generate UML diagrams from source codes. Here’s what I do for Java code: graphviz + ant + UMLGraph. Details below:

1. Install graphviz and ant, download UMLGraph from

2. Place UMLGraph.jar in your project, for example, under

3. Write or modify your ant script, for example:

4. Run this ant script.

5. You will get the UML class diagram as expected in the generated Java docs. Here’s one example (click to enlarge):




用Qt Designer设计界面比较方便,用熟之后效率会更高。把界面设计好之后可以通过继承的方式给自己的类添加逻辑。如果设计的界面保存为mycaculator.ui的话,uic将会自动将这个XML文件转换成ui_mycaculator.h,其中的namespace为Ui。



更新:上面的正则表达式不对,因为’+’, ‘-‘和’*’在正则表达式中有特殊意义。应该为如下:

Multiple Sessions

A SessionManager' is used to manage all the sessions. The SessionManager’ keeps a list of sessions. When it receives data, it will first check which session the data belongs to. Then the data is given to the corresponding session. If it does not belong to any session in the list, a new session will be created and added to the session list.

The basic code looks like this:

Session Establishment and Tearing Down

Each session has a ‘status’, it can be ‘new’, ‘establishing’, ‘cancelling’, ‘established’, ‘tearingdown’ and ‘destroyed’.

When a new session is created, its status is ‘new’.

When an ‘INVITE’ is received, it sends out an ‘OK’ message and change its status to ‘establishing’.

After receiving an ‘ACK’ message the status will be changed to ‘established’.

Then begins the transferring of voice data using RTP.

When the sending finishes the status will become ‘tearingdown’.

A ‘BYE’ message is also sent to the client.

The status becomes ‘destroyed’ after getting ‘OK’ from the client.

When a ‘CANCEL’ message is received, the status becomes ‘cancelling’.

Then it sends back ‘OK’ and ‘Request Terminated’ messages.

After received an ‘ACK’, the status becomes ‘destroyed’.

The thread is as follows:

Generating Voice File

When the web server receives a POST' message from the web page, it will first check whether the message is valid. If so, freeTTS‘ is used to generate a voice file and the file is saved in the `wav’ directory with pre-configured file name.

The voice generator looks as follows:

Non-ASCII characters in Email subject

In this system, Email subjects are encoded in Q' scheme, a scheme similar to quoted printable’. The format is “=?charset?Q?encoded subject?=”, in our case, the charset is `ISO-8859-15′.

For example, the Email object in this system is as follows:

MIME Encoding

Quoted printable characters are encoded in the format =XX', where XX’ stands for the hexadecimal value of the character.

The encoder looks as follows:

URL Decoding

The charset of the form page is ISO-8859-15'. HTTP will encode the form message in URLEncoding, that is, space is replaced with +’; non-ASCII characters are encoded inthe format %XX', where XX’ stands for the hexadecimal value of the character.

The URL decoder in this system looks as follows:
