Gentleware Celebrates 5 Years of Success

Elizabeth Graham writes "Poseidon for UML’s merit sees it through tech downturns to emerge leading the competition.

HAMBURG, GERMANY - Nov. 21, 2005 -- On November 27th, 2005 Gentleware AG, a global leader in Unified Modeling Language (UML) tools will celebrate the fifth anniversary of its inception. With its 'Poseidon for UML' software line, it has flourished to have one of the most widely downloaded UML tools worldwide. It all started when founder and CEO Dr. Marko Boger was a project leader of the open source project ArgoUML; Dr. Boger realized the great demand for a tool like ArgoUML as well as the amount of work necessary to shape it into a professionally usable tool. He took the risk of starting a company with the intention of bringing the most user-friendly UML tool to a broad audience; today that risk has paid off - the result is a smart tool that can boast over 1,200,000 downloads.

True to its purpose, Gentleware has continued to develop Poseidon for UML with real users in mind. The newest releases have not only implemented the UML 2.0 standard within a user-friendly interface, they have also incorporated features like inspections within Sequence Diagrams and limiting element associations only to legal relationships. These and other unique functions were specifically included to let the user focus on the task of creating, not on the distractions of notation or tool usage. Version 4.0 of Poseidon for UML will integrate even more of these innovations, and is expected to debut before the end of the year.

In honor of this important anniversary, Gentleware is making an unprecedented offer: Purchase Poseidon for UML by December 9th, 2005 to receive 30% off Poseidon for UML licenses plus get a free Update Subscription, valid for all major and minor releases within 12 calendar months. To take advantage of this exceptional offer worth between USD 209 and USD 1069 per license, order online from the Gentleware Special Offers webpage ( , or mention this offer when ordering by phone, fax, or email.
