I recognized importance of conceptual models of UML Class diagram, which can be compatible with “Entity Relation” model. Furhtermore, CWM (Common warehouse metamodel), which is also OMG specification, provides ER model representation in UML profile.

We are using it for years now and are using our own tool allowing us to transform an UML conceptual model into code for an applcation. This way we are not losing the power of UML and do not introduce errors by “translating” this model into a notation for yet another tool. The model has to stay the base from where to start and to which all changes must be applied to keep it consistent and up-to-date through the application life-cycle.

As I showed at http://www.agiledata.org/essays/umlDataModelingProfile.html it’s pretty straightforward to extend UML for physical data modeling as well as conceptual modeling.
