This chapter has presented an in-depth view of the Class Designer. Throughout the chapter, you have seen how each of the features of the Class Designer supports the four user scenarios that were the guiding factors in the design of the Class Designer. The Class Designer gives you the opportunity to reverse-engineer existing code and visualize existing code in order to better understand it. It allows you to refactor code through the designer without diving into the code itself. The key feature of the Class Designer is that it ensures that your object model and documentation remain accurate and helpful from the first day of the application to the last day of an application, and into the maintenance cycle.
