In this work, we present a tool for automatic source code generation, in OO languages, from abstract models expressed in UML. The tool allows the code generation, as much of the static structure as the dynamic behavior, present in models of software systems. Specifically, it allows to generate source code in the C++ language, from the classes diagrams, state diagrams, and activities diagrams of the UML. This tool could be integrated to a modeling CASE tool, with appropriate exporting capacities of UML models in format XMI . We present details of tool design and implementation, with special attention in code generation for dynamic behavior. In addition, to evaluate the tool, we present study cases.
