I work for a company that produces an object-oriented programming tool.
We use Unified Modeling Language (UML) conventions for all analysis and
design, which
includes a plethora of diagrams.

UML is a convention that was designed and is championed by Rational
Rational has a number of web pages on its website (
dedicated to UML.
UML Version 1.1 should be adopted by the Object Modeling Group (OMG )
sometime next year.
It is already recognized as a de facto standard.

The "graphics" are not pretty (they're schematic), but they get the job
done, and they're widely
recognized throughout the OO community.

Hope this helps
