In a very interesting article on IBM DeveloperWorks author Benjamin Lieberman elaborates on how to use colors in (architectural) diagrams. And probably even more important: how not to use colors.

Without a doubt, the use of color dramatically impacts any diagram or presentation. You can use color to draw attention to particular aspects of a diagram, to distinguish differences between elements, or simply to increase the visual appeal. When misused, however, color can cause discomfort to the viewer and even create ambiguity. Discover some of the common mistakes modelers can make when applying color to diagrams, and learn a set of simple rules you can follow when presenting model information containing color.

It’s hosted here and presents a technique of grouping your classes along their role in a system and coloring them accordingly. –Barend, 2007-03-18

An agile approach to modeling with its “just-in-time design” contrasts with the traditional approach of “big requirements up front.” In this article, Anil Hemrajani introduces the agile approach and shows how it can be used to build enterprise applications.dev2dev

With lightweight domain specific modeling, developers can implement and use their own code generators to avoid repetitive manual coding and increase efficiency. This article shows how to make this approach easy, by being in control of the DSL and code generation tools. [theserverside]
