I did not mean to sound demeaning, gregor42
. I apologize if I did in any way.
My planning is simply not structured enough for me to justify using UML diagrams. My projects just aren't long enough at this stage of my career (I'm in college, working as a student Web developer for my university).
I am certain that, at some point, I will want to use a tool such as ArgoUML to plan my projects. I just want to avoid being forced to fall back to a specification that is inflexible for whatever reason--because the other programmers can't bend from their UML diagram, for example.
Please don't take this as a personal attack--I respect your decision to use a UML tool. I just worry about some of my classmates in computer science courses that I am taking. We are taught to think that a strict analysis and design process is absolutely necessary for all programming projects, so I am skeptical of the use of UML diagrams in general.
