Class Toolbox

The Class Toolbox can be used for creating Class models and Data models. Such models contain Package diagrams, Class diagrams and Object diagrams - those diagrams that usually display elements concerned with the logical structure of the system, such as Objects, Classes and Interfaces.

Logical models can include domain models (high level business driven object models) through to strict development Class models (defining inheritance, attributes and operations).
