Artisan® Software Tools, the world’s largest independent supplier of industrial-grade, collaborative modeling tools for complex, mission and safety-critical embedded systems and software, has launched Artisan Studio Uno[tm], a free-of-charge yet fully functional, single-user version of its award-winning Artisan Studio SysML/UML collaborative development environment.
Excel Software is shipping an update to the QuickCRC and QuickUML tools to design object-oriented software on Mac OS X or Windows computers. The updates include a new installer, interface enhancements, add and delete diagram buttons and a reduced price of $195 each. The Mac edition is a Universal Binary application optimized for both PPC and Intel based Mac OS X computers. The Windows edition runs on XP or Vista. CRC cards or UML models can be edited from Mac or Windows. CRC cards exported from QuickCRC can be imported into QuickUML to generate a UML model.
Recently published research by VDC Research Group indicates that the automotive industry will represent the largest vertical market, as a percentage of total market revenue, for software and system modeling tools by 2010. VDC defines the software and system modeling tool market to include both standard (UML, SysML, SDL, etc.) and proprietary (MATLAB, SCADE, LabVIEW, etc.) language-based modeling solutions intended to facilitate the process of developing embedded software and systems.
Artisan® Software Tools, the world’s largest independent developer of industrial-grade, collaborative modeling tools for complex, mission and safety-critical embedded systems and software, has launched version 7.0 of Artisan Studio®, its flagship model-driven development tool suite. Artisan Studio provides complete support for UML®, OMG SysML[TM], and Architectural Frameworks in a single, integrated environment.
Artisan® Software Tools, the world’s largest independent developer of industrial-grade, collaborative modeling tools for complex, mission-critical embedded systems and software, has acquired the operating business of High Integrity Solutions (HIS) based near Southampton in the UK. The acquisition is part of Artisan’s accelerated growth strategy and gives the company full ownership of Vds[TM] (V-Design System), a fully integrated, collaborative engineering framework for the trouble-free deployment and maintenance of best-in-class tools for mission and safety-critical systems and software development. The core Vds engineering and support team will also join the Artisan fold, taking responsibility for the product’s ongoing development, support and maintenance.
A new industry standards group – the UPDM Group – has been established to build on previous efforts within the Object Management Group (OMG) to develop a modeling standard that supports both the US Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) and the UK’s Ministry of Defence Architecture Framework (MODAF). The modeling standard is called the Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM). The group’s mission statement is the following: “The UPDM Group is committed to creating a unified profile for MODAF and DoDAF, leveraging the capabilities of UML, SysML and other OMG standards.”
Artisan® Software Tools, the leading independent developer of premium-quality, collaborative modeling tools for complex, mission-critical embedded systems and software, has launched the C# Synchronizer for Artisan Studio®. Artisan’s C# Synchronizer facilitates a “best-of-breed” methodology for C# programmers by enabling software architecting to be undertaken in UML using Artisan Studio while allowing them retain the context of C#-aware features by implementing the coding detail using their preferred C# IDE or program editor.
UML company, Telelogic (now owned by IBM), will be presenting their UML modelling tools at the technology developer’s event, the Embedded Masterclass. This event is to be held in both London and Bristol on May 8th and 13th. Telelogic will be presenting an introduction to the ‘UML 2 Testing Profile’, and its practical application for the testing of embedded software applications. The UML Testing Profile is a test modeling language that can be used with all major object and component technologies and applied to testing systems in various application domains. The presentation will explore how the UML Testing Profile can be used as the basis for the automatic generation of test architectures, the graphical specification of tests using UML concepts such as Sequence Diagrams and Activity diagrams, and the automatic running of tests in a model based environment.
PrismTech(tm), a leader in high-performance middleware and development tools, has partnered with Sparx Systems, a leading provider of modeling tools based on open standards, to fully integrate PrismTech’s OpenSplice(tm) DDS (Data Distribution Service) with Sparx Systems’ Enterprise Architect. The collaboration will create a technology ecosystem that fully supports the lifecycle of complex, data-centric applications — from requirement management to design, implementation, deployment and tuning.
Telelogic (STO:TLOG), an IBM Company (NYSE:IBM) announced enhancements to its market leading Model Driven Development(tm) (MDD(tm)) solution, Telelogic Rhapsody®. The new features decrease time-to-market through the support of MDD best practices that do not disrupt current project workflow, and provide system engineers a way to leverage advanced visualization and prototyping capabilities to easily validate design correctness and effectively communicate intended design behavior.
