Astah is a lightweight UML editor integrated with ERD, DFD, CRUD and Mind mapping features for software developers. Developers, analysts, testers and managers can communicate with one another effectively using Astah diagrams because all the diagrams are consistently stored in one model. Besides the standalone editions, "Astah share"(a web server edition) will boost the communication by providing a web-browser view of the shared diagrams so that the team can exchange comments like social network services.
The previous versions of Astah have been known as JUDE.
