We programmers often get stuck tracing the large number of code connections as projects become more and more complex. While code for any one feature is ideally all in one place, this is often not the case. As new features are added to a system, it can become hard to restrict the code from being split among multiple locations. Class diagrams can help by bringing spread out code together.
Architexa creates class diagrams to assist you in bringing related classes, methods, fields together and helps you see all the different code relationships like method calls, inheritance and call references. It also makes it easier for you to see the structure of code you care about in a single view.
It is easy for diagrams to quickly get too large to be helpful. Architexa diagrams help you keep control of what is shown in a diagram. Class diagrams start simple from a single method, field, or a class. While they allow you to easily add members, nothing is added to the diagram unless you want it.

Familiar class diagram representation and default Eclipse icons allow for easy identification of components. Class diagrams show the number of fields and methods present in a class and also the number of classes in a package. Moreover, by selecting a class one can easily see what this class inherits (implements/extends) from (arrow at the top) or what inherits from this class (arrow at the bottom). Similarly 'calls made by' or 'calls made to' a method in a class is shown by horizontal arrows.
Easily add fields, methods, and other classes
The diagrams can be populated with ease by adding fields or methods from a class or by adding classes from a package using the menu buttons provided with the class and package components respectively.

Having too many editors open happens often and gets annoying fast. Architexa allows you to show how all the open tabs are related to each other in a single diagram.
To Open Editors in Tabs:
Select the 'Open in Tabs' button from the Architexa Toolbar
Select a Diagram type and Each class you have open will appear in the corresponding diagram
Right Click on an editor Tab
Select 'Open Editors As' and choose a diagram type
Navigations you have made within the code will also show as relationships within the diagram
