Tool functionalities are usable on IT research and teaching on LUT. Visual Paradigm is build on java so it works in linux as well.
  
 +===== Status =====
 +**2009-09-24** Note: New version 7.1 . Visual Paradigm web pages has changed also.
  
 +**2009-05-26** 3 Floating licences in purchase process for comlab.
 +
 +**2009-06-02** Floating license server installed at cursa.pc.lut.fi virtualmachine,​ license port is 1998. 
 +
 +===== Installing =====
 +
 +Software is founded under [[smb://​www2.it.lut.fi/​software/​VisualParadigmForUML]] network folder. ​
 +
 +Software is available for Linux, windows, Unix and MacOS systems. It's made with java, but jre is bundled with it, separate java installation is not necessary. During installation choose ''​standard edition''​ and do not define license files. After installation run software and use functions founded at client to define floating license server.
 +
 +"​License keys" -> "​Floating license"​ -> "​Configure"​
 +
 +server: cursa.pc.lut.fi
 +port: 1999
 +
 +
 +Do not use license import tools, this will reserve one license from server for loca use only.
 +
 +**Note** bundled java jre in visual paradigm is slow. Relink VP_SuiteN.N/​jre to point system
 +jre (/​usr/​lib/​jvm ..).

 + 
 +Commercial Standard edition (or edition at need) for research. These licenses costs then. Visual Paradigm for UML is $360 single seat and $470 for floating. Floating or single seat ? => floating 
 + 
 +I suggest we buy 3 floating licenses for the laboratory use. It costs $1410. Ok. Funding: "CT30 yksi lisenssi ja 2 lisenssia UMSIC hankkeelta."​

-==== Commercial Visual Paradigm for UML Standard Edition ====+==== Commercial Visual Paradigm for UML Standard Edition, Single Seat ==== 
 +Standard edition [[http://​www.visual-paradigm.com/​product/​vpuml/​editioncomparison.jsp|feature set]] seems to be usable for modeling and development on research and teaching. One noted feature with standard edition is team collaboration by subversion version management system. 
 + 
 +Single seat license cost is $360 with one year maintenance. http://​www.visual-paradigm.com/​product/​vpuml/​vpumlpricelist.jsp 
 + 
 +=== Limitations === 
 +//​**Single-Seat License**. Visual Paradigm'​s single-seat (team-member-based) license allows a licensee to install the software on a computer that belongs, and provides sole access, to the named user only. Since the license is team-member-based,​ the software must be used by the licensee only, without running more than one instance concurrently. The single-seat license only allows installation on a maximum of three computers.//​ http://​www.visual-paradigm.com/​product/​vpuml/​vpumlpricelist.jsp

 +=> This seems to be not good, as personnel are moving a lot in department. 
 + 
 +This seems to be bind to person at buy process. http://​www.visual-paradigm.com/​shop/​howtobuy.jsp. It is not very convient for laboratory use as people are moving a lot on long run. 
 + 
 +==== Commercial Visual Paradigm for UML Standard Edition, Floating ==== 
 + 
 +Floating license allow multiple person on multiple computers use the software. Also taking license temporary with eg. laptop on travel is possible.

 +==== Visual Paradigm SDE (Smart Development Environment) in Eclipse ==== 
 + 
 +Not working very eclipse way. Has own conventions embedded into eclipse. => Better use plain standalone Visual Paradigm for UML.
