Change Vision Launches New UML/Mind Map Modeling Tool for Agile Software Development

TOKYO, JAPAN. - Oct. 21, 2009 - Change Vision, Inc. today announces that "JUDE", Change Vision's major-product-for-10-years UML/Mind map tool, will be changing its name to "astah*" and released on October 19th, 2009 with new features in an aggressively cost-effective product line-up.
As Agile software development projects increase, there is more demand for easy-to-use sketching and modeling tools for developers in the project teams. astah*'s motivation is to provide developers worldwide with an easy-to-use sketching and modeling tool for drawing diagrams such as UML, ERD, DFD and Mind Map without too-much-cost-burden on the team.

On the released of astah*, Change Vision (1) introduces new editions, "astah* UML" and "astah* share", and also (2) presents a great reduced-price offer for easy introduction to the development teams.

"astah* share" is a web-based communication server edition that loads astah* diagrams so that developers, testers, analysts and managers can share the diagrams via Web browsers and exchange comments to them like social networking services.
