Modelio 3, a major new version

Paris, September 30th 2013 - World wide modeling, high performance support of large-scale projects, complete support of internationalization, improved ergonomics and Eclipse/EMF compatibility are the major new features of this version

World Wide Modeling: The distributed enterprise repository

Modelio is proud to introduce a new, exclusive technology, which will enable you to distribute and share repositories via the web or other networks.

Modelio brings you the concept of model fragments, which can be distributed and shared on the web. Modelio projects can group together
several model fragments from different sources and provide users with transparent access to model elements.

Distributed model fragments interconnected on a network

With model fragments, sharing a model with outside participants is a simple question of sending them a URL.

This unique technology lets you avoid the constraints of centralised modeling tool repositories, thereby ensuring a means of providing intra and
inter-enterprise repositories, whatever the number, distribution and nature of the participants.

Modelio models are no longer imprisoned in a central repository, but are rather open and interconnectable on a planetary scale.

Users work on the model fragments that they have transparently selected in their projects, without having to worry about where these fragments are
located or where they have come from.

Modelio manages missing links in the same way as web browsers manage links between web pages, and re-establishes models once access has been re-established.

For more information on model fragments, read the "World Wide Modeling: The agility of the web applied to model repositories" white paper, or read our dedicated web page on world wide modeling.

High-performance support of large-scale models

As well as its World Wide Modeling capacities, which enable users to break projects into model fragments and distribute them via several fragments, Modelio has strengthened its support of very large-scale models through new model management architecture combined with high-performance cache and swap techniques.

This new architecture has increased Modelio's storage and editing capacities, as well as its speed, giving users a sensation of immediate generation and code/doc-model consistency.

Complete support of internationalization

Modelio now provides complete support of languages such as Russian, Asian or Arabic languages in models.

Complete support of internationalization

Improved ergonomics

Modelio support Eclipse 4, and its spreadsheet editors, project configuration and model explorer have also been reworked for greater user comfort.

Eclipse/EMF compatibility

Modelio 3 brings you a new EMF-compatible API for handling the metamodel, so as to facilitate the portability of MDA applications between the two worlds. Modelio continues to bring you the benefits of its EMF API, minimizing the volume of code to be produced (unique element creation factory, filtered accessors, and so on).

The current API is maintained.

 

Modeliosoft presents its solutions for embedded systems & software at Embedded World 2013, from February 26th to 28th.

Modelio System Architect Solution in particular meets the need of embedded systems, providing the following functions:

  • System modeling based on SysML, UML and BPMN
  • Requirement analysis support
  • Traceability management and impact analysis
  • MARTE support for embedded systems
  • Code & document generation

Modeliosoft will present the results of two European research projects using Modelio to master complex issues with embedded system design:

  • Enosys: Integrated modeling and synthesis tool flow for embedded system design. The main objectives are to shorten time-to-market and to reduce design costs in the development of new electronic products.
  • Mades: Model-based methods and tools for Avionics and Surveillance embedded Systems. This project aims to develop the elements of a fully-fledged model-driven approach for the design, validation, simulation and code generation of complex embedded systems to improve current practice in the field.

A French TV channel recently made a show about Softeam. The UML modeling tool Modelio is also presented during this TV show.

July 2012: Modeliosoft presented Modelio at the INCOSE 2012 symposium. The INCOSE case study was realized using Modelio, and presents some of Modelio's many capacities (videos, whitepaper or generated documents can be downloaded).

Modelio provides a large set of functionalities for complex system modeling, such as:

Release of Modelio Java Solution 2.2 on June 15th 2012

Modelio Java Solution 2.2 enhances developer agility, boosts developer productivity in Eclipse, and improves application quality, even where developers have not used an initial modeling approach.
Based on existing Java code and Java code currently under development, Modelio Java Solution 2.2 consolidates this code, builds architecture overview models in UML, and completes Javadocs with these models.

Benefits brought by new features

  • Update of existing code
  • Construction of design overview models
  • Support of audit and reverse engineering
  • Improved Javadocs

Key features

  • Reverse engineering of existing code, and automatic construction of UML models
  • Construction of package diagrams with overview of inter package/inter-class dependencies
  • Browsing in dependency graphs, analysis of causes
  • Update/generation of Java utility methods
  • Generation of Javadocs integrating UML diagrams, HTML browsing in Javadoc graphs

Key features of the current Modelio Java Solution


Automatic update of Java utility methods

The Eclipse IDE is used to create utility methods (equals, hashCode, toString) from a class definition. However, it does not maintain them, which can cause well know problem, such as bugs and maintenance work. Modelio keeps the Java code consistent, by reversing it and keeping generation "up to date".

Design diagram generation in Javadocs

Never before will you have seen Javadocs as attractive as those produced by Modelio. With Modelio, you can automatically improve all the Javadocs belonging to your existing applications.

Reverse engineering and UML diagram construction

  • Modelio analyzes your application (.java, .jar), and builds UML models and diagrams dedicated to Java programmers and designers
  • Class diagrams
  • Package diagrams with dependency overview
