UML is a great object oriented modeling language that helps when working on small, medium or large projects, in small or large teams. Although ActionScript (AS) is a powerful object oriented programming language (which has got practically no learning curve for developers familiar with Java or C++), it was difficult to work with UML and AS without getting headaches. This will change with the release of UML4AS - UML for ActionScript and Flex.

UML4AS - UML for ActionScript and Flex is a "developer friendly" UML modeling tool that has bi-directional code synchronization support. Let me be more specific:
  • UML modeling tool - creates and manages class models and diagrams
  • bi-directional code synchronization - can generate and reverse engineer .as and .mxml files
  • developer friendly - is the whole philosophy behind UML4AS; UML4AS - UML for ActionScript and Flex is flexible and adapts to the existing development workflow. Among the many elements that make this possible I would enumerate the CodeSync technology (make simultaneous changes to the model and code, and synchronize without problems), tight integration within the IDE, etc.
I will soon be adding more articles about UML, ActionScript and Flex, and how they can be used together in a fun, easy and productive manner using UML4AS.

Meanwhile take a look at http://www.uml4as.com for more info.
