ArgoUML is a powerful yet easy-to-use interactive Java based graphical software design environment that supports the design, development and documentation of object-oriented software applications.

The users of ArgoUML are software designers & architects, software developers, business analysts, systems analysts and other professionals involved in the analysis, design and development of software applications.

It uses Open standards: XMI (XML Metadata Interchange (XMI), an OMG standard for exchanging metadata information via Extensible Markup Language (XML), SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), an XML specification and file format for describing two-dimensional vector graphics, both static and animated), and PGML (Precision Graphics Markup Language (PGML), an XML-based language for representing vector graphics).
