Visual Paradigm for UML (VP-UML) is a UML CASE Tool supporting UML 2, SysML and Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) from the Object Management Group (OMG). In addition to modeling support, it provides report generation and code engineering capabilities including code generation. It can reverse engineer diagrams from code, and provide round-trip engineering for various programming languages.

UML Modeling

VP-UML supports 13 types of diagrams:

Requirements Management

VP supports requirements management including user stories, use cases, SysML requirement diagrams and textual analysis.

A SysML requirement diagram specifies the capability or condition that must be delivered in the target system. Capability refers to the functions that the system must support. Condition means that the system should be able to run or produce the result given a specific constraint. VP-UML provides a SysML requirement diagram for specifying and analyzing requirements.

Business Process Modeling

Supports BPMN 2.0 for modeling of business processes.

Data Modeling

VP-UML supports both Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERD) and Object Relational Mapping Diagrams (ORMD). ERD is used to model the relational database. ORMD is one of the tools to show the mapping between Class (computer programming) from object-oriented world and entity in relational database world.
