    • Stereotypes and taggedvalues, or more generaly, UML Profiles

      Add support for stereotypes and tagged-values, first use case is for customizing code generation based on Class Diagrams but should be further extended to any other meta-class and diagram.
      More generally, it relates to the support of UML Profiles

      • Allow Array types

        I'd like to be able to have arrays of objects/primitives as parameters/return types. Simply adding [] or [][] behind the class type would be great.

        • Support all 14 Diagram Types of the UML 2.0 specification

          Need the tools and templates for 14 diagram types of the UML 2.0 specifications. (http://bit.ly/UML2PointOh)

          That is the only way GenMyModel will be able to compete with Gliffy

            • keys

              It would be nice to be able to mark an attribute as a foreign key or primary key in the properties. It would also be nice to identify unique constraints as combinations of attributes.

              • Add Component Diagrams

                Can you add Sequence Diagrams, Component Diagrams, and Deployment Diagrams. Also, allowing for drag and drop from the Project Explorer to a diagram would be useful.

                • Final variables and classes and custom variables types

                  At the moment you can not specify that a variable or class is final. This is possible in java and other languages. You can not specify variable types like String[], List<Classname> or Thread, and so one. These are standard included in several languages. So it would be nice that you can create a list somewhere and you can use these types then whenever you want in your project.

                  • Automatic get and set for attributes

                    Could be nice if it generates the get and set operations, automatically.

                      • Automatic Association between classes

                        So far, it is incredibly easy to use, and no need for all things usually others application offer. It is intuitive, almost natural.

                        I think that generating associations automatically after setting attributes it something good to implement. Let say I create a class Person and another Family, when I insert an attribute into Family and set his type to Person, that would generate a association from family to person.

                                  • Allow image in classes

                                    Allow putting in image in the header of a class. This would make classes easier to recognize.

                                    Give possibility to simply find the image from a google image search and allow for easy resizing (like what mindmeister has).

                                      • Addition of Composite Diagram

                                        If SysML is ever supported the Internal Block Definition diagram is pretty important to support, and it is similar to the UML composite diagram. An important aspect of this is to provide the ability to generate the composite/IBD from the class/BDD. This provides a way to show the interconnections between systems.

                                        • Allow attributes in DataTypes

                                          DataTypes should support attributes to create structured types.

                                          For example: http://www.uml-diagrams.org/data-type.html
