Description trembovetski 2005-01-24 15:50:10 UTC
NB is missing what appears to be very useful
feature for many developers: some basic UML
diagram builder. It doesn't have to be full-blown
UML support, just the ability to look at your
classes hierarchy would suffice.

From the email exchange with Trung Duc Tran:

you're right.  We don't have this feature

It seems that this kind of feature falls squarely
into UML tool domain.
 Perhaps what you really want is some kind of
Light UML.  Some of us
were talking about it, but nothing serious so far

I think this should probably something that UML pack should add. Or at least we could use some component from UML pack
to show the class hierarchy diagram.
