That is why I email to umbrello.
I hope, that I find time in a few weeks. Than I can give to you a 
detailed description (step by step)what I mean (better what I mean what 
mda means).
But I start with java in november last year and and although with that 
mda stuff. So I have to  solve some miracle at this time.
But  nearly every day I get more from that what I mean or what I mean 
what mda mean.
It looks for me possible to describe graphicle user interfaces by uml 
completly and with that ozone db, I create db-interface from uml nearly 
complete with umbrello at this time.
