The Isotrol DocGen BOUML plugout is a practical tool to update the OpenUP-based documentation of your project dynamically. DocGen extracts texts and diagrams from a BOUML project and inserts them in an OpenOffice.org Writer document. It's preconfigured with a generic project template and three definition files for Analysis, Design, and Architecture OpenUP-based documents. You can also insert predefined tables and link external images to embed them into the document. You can define your own template and file definitions. It's as easy as writing an OpenOffice.org Writer document and designing your own page format, cover, index page, headings styles, variables, etc. Afterwards, you create an XML file pointing to the parts of the BOUML project with the contents.
