Many existing UML tools are far too heavyweight for quickly producing a few simple models. These heavyweight UML tools usually contain large amounts of functionality, which can lead to usability problems and poor productivity. Lightweight web-based UML tools are designed to support quick and easy production of models. The use of the web has added benefits including portability and group collaboration. This report discusses lightweight groupware UML case tools and presents a lightweight web-based class diagram editor that requires no web browser extensions.
