Hi Enrico,

some month ago I did some research on CASE tools. Here is my experiance:

Rational Rose is ported to Linux. Unfortunately it fills the sourcecode with 
plenty of commentlines and makes it nearly unreadable. I was in the Beta 
team but left it a while ago. They told me they are developing a new version 
which is pure parser related an doesn't write any comments any more. I don't 
know if the version came out allready.

Together Soft is compareable to Rational Rose. It is written in Java, so you 
have to have a powerful machine to get it to an acceptable performance on 
larger projects. The layout of diagrams is great. It works with C++ but is 
mainly Java oriented. I rejected it because there was no way of putting it in 
a pure analysis mode. Very often when moving arround objects in the 
UML-View across other objects the display stock an the software decided to 
embed the moved class into the class I crossed over. At the same time it 
started reediting all the references etc. in the complete sourcecode. Without 
an undo option this is a horror!
The good thing is you can download the software and you have a trial period.

The other tools I found for Linux were far not as powerfull as the two above.
