Installing the ArgoUML CASE tool UNIX
If you're a software developer using UML, you may want to know about ArgoUML, an open-source Java CASE tool available from Tigris. It lets you draw different views of your project and such.

Version 0.8.1 appears to work fine using their install steps when running it from Terminal, or you can use MRJAppBuilder to create a clickable application if you have installed the Dev Tools CD.

Read the rest of this article if you'd like instructions on installing ArgoUML on Mac OS X.

(1) Download ArgoUML from the site and save it in your Documents directory.

(2) Unpack ArgoUML using tar in a Terminal window:
[localhost:~] dove% cd Documents
[localhost:~/Documents] dove% mkdir argo
[localhost:~/Documents] dove% cd argo
[localhost:~/Documents/argo] dove% tar xzf ../Argo*.tar.gz
(3) Launch MRJAppBuilder (in /Developer/Applications)

(4) Use Add... in the Merge Files pane of MRJAppBuilder to select all of the .jar files from the Argo distribution in your argo directory (~/Documents/argo).

(5) Enter uci.uml.Main in MRJAppBuilder's Application pane Main Classname field.

(6) Press Set... in the Application pane and give the Argo Java application a directory and a name, like Argo in your (not the system's) Applications folder.

(7) Press Build Application in the Application pane.

You're done! You can launch the application from the Finder.

If you don't want to use MRJBuilder but still want to play with ArgoUML, head over to my iDisk kf6gpe; there's a copy of ArgoUML 0.8.1 built as a Mac OS X application.
