Starting from version 7997, PlantUML allows to generate diagrams into LaTeX, thanks to Tikz package.

Note that this is still beta, and many things won't probably work. Since we do not want to spend time on features not used, we will wait for users to report bugs here.

You just have to use the flag -tlatex with the command line, or format="latex" with the Ant task.

If you want to include the LaTeX output directly into another LaTeX document you can use -tlatex:nopreamble. This way PlantUML will only export the tikz-picture itself, without the document preamble.

Class diagram example

class Subscriber {

class AccumUsage {

class IpSession {

Subscriber "1" -[#blue]-> "1..*" IpSession
Subscriber "1" --> "0..1" AccumUsage

Sequence diagram example

Bob -> Alice: hello
return Ok
