3. About This Document

This document describes Poseidon for UML and how to use it. It is intended as a user guide. It is not a book about UML or Java. Basic knowledge about UML as well as Java is assumed.

We are working hard to make Poseidon for UML as intuitive as possible. You should be able to open up Poseidon for UML and start using it without looking into this documentation. However, you will find it useful to read through this document to get you up to speed faster and discover useful features earlier.

This version of the User Guide has been reorganized to help you find the information you need more quickly. The first four chapters help you get up and running with Poseidon for UML, chapters 5 through 13 are reference sections, and the final group of chapters discuss the more advanced features of Poseidon.
