Creating top-level Java classes in domain modeling class diagrams

You can use domain modeling class diagrams to create Java™ classes that are not enclosed in other types (top-level classes) to visually develop Java applications.

Before you begin

You must have a domain modeling class diagram open.


  1. In the Palette, click Class and click an empty space inside the class diagram.
  2. In the New Java Class wizard, in the Source Folder field, specify the source folder for the new class.
  3. In the Package field, specify the package to contain the new class. If you want the new class to be created in the default package, leave this field empty.
  4. Clear the Enclosing type check box.
  5. In the Name field, type a name for the new class.
  6. Under Modifiers, select access modifiers for the new class.
  7. In the Superclass field, specify the superclass for the new class.
  8. Click Add.
  9. In the Implemented Interfaces Selection window, select the interfaces for the new class to implement and click OK.
  10. Select method stubs to create in the new class.
  11. Click Finish.
