Green is a LIVE round-tripping editor, meaning that it supports both software engineering and reverse engineering. You can use green to create a UML class diagram from code, or to generate code by drawing a class diagram.
The editor features a simple point-and-click interface. Right-clicking in the editor brings up a context-sensitive menu that includes features such as the refactoring and quick-fix functionality. Green supports exporting files to JPG, PNG and GIF formats, as well as saving them as Green UML projects, so that you can share you diagrams without any issues.

Please note that Green UML is effectively a collection of plug-ins (see the structure overview). Development of each plug-in is performed in a separate Eclipse project. There are also additional projects: an update site project
GreenUpdateSite (used to create an Eclipse plug-in installation web site), and feature projects:
GreenSVGSaveFeature (used to package groups of plug-ins together into installable and updatable units which are then uploaded to the update site).
