On the topic, here is a cheap light-weight tool called slime which 
prides itself on being built from the ground up with legacy classes in mind.

I've just downloaded it so I'm yet to find out how goods it is in 
reality. It's not a literate tool but it does real-time updating both 
ways - you can even split your screen between code and diagram and watch 
the changes - see the last screenshot at

BTW. Eclipse is an excellent open-source IDE for linux - particularly if 
you're coding Java. Slime is an eclipse pluin that costs 30 euros to 
if you *are* looking for a literate? tool, there's also an eclipse 
plugin for that which is free.
