A desktop application for fast UML diagramming.

Installation Instructions

JetUML is distributed in two formats:

Self-Contained Application

Thin Jar

This format requires that you have both Java and JavaFX version 17 or above running on your system.

Download file JetUML-<Version>.jar from the latest release page, to a local directory.

To run JetUML, open a command-line terminal window and enter the command below from the same directory where you downloaded the file, or write a script to execute it more conveniently (use java instead of javaw on OSX/Linux).

javaw --module-path "PATH_TO_JAVAFX_LIB" --add-modules=javafx.controls,javafx.swing,java.desktop,java.prefs -jar JETUML_FILE

Where PATH_TO_JAVAFX_LIB is the full path to the lib directory of the javafx installation and JETUML_FILE is the path to the JetUML jar downloaded. For example:

javaw --module-path "C:\local\Java\javafx-sdk-17.0.2\lib" --add-modules=javafx.controls,javafx.swing,java.desktop,java.prefs -jar JetUML-3.4.jar
