I'm sorry to say that, but currently it is not possible. The UML support has been dropped by NetBeans a few years ago (after 6.7 release)Al. Since than it has been taken over by community (led by Javier Ortiz <firstname.lastname@example.org>) about 2-3 years back and it is been developed as community plug-in. This group is very focused on Java support. Meanwhile Javier asked me about C++ APIs couple of years ago. You may try to sync up with him to figure out there they are with C++ support.
In Studio you may try the Call Graph feature which is not a substitution to UML by any means, however it may serve you well depending on your needs.
Also please note that Visual-Paradigm provides a commercial UML plug-in for NetBeans: http://www.visual-paradigm.com/support/documents/vpumluserguide/2381/2384/66569_overviewandi.html
while the IDE integration is mentioned as a feature of free community edition as well. I know for sure that VP supports C++ UML, but I do not know if that support is enabled for NetBeans and Solaris Studio.
Yes, I am interested primarily in the class diagram. Class hierarchy is definitely good but a class diagram would help in a lot of ways.
- Documentation.(as you have mentioned, with export ability).
- For quick reference, no need to go through older design docs and helps if the type hierarchy list is too lengthy.
