No Magic has just released a new version of MagicDraw that enhances integrations with the most popular open-source MDA tools AndroMDA and openArchitectureWare. Additionaly, the new version of MagicDraw Teamwork Server now integrates with IBM® Rational® ClearCase® and Subversion version control system repositories.

 

Plano, TX, June 4, 2007. No Magic, Inc.®, a leading vendor of architecture modeling software, today announced the release of MagicDraw® 12.5.  This version of No Magic’s award-winning business analysis, and architecture modeling tool enhances integrations with the most popular open-source MDA tools AndroMDA and openArchitectureWare. Also, MagicDraw 12.5 Teamwork Server now integrates with IBM® Rational® ClearCase® and Subversion, the top rated version control system repositories. Additionally, it delivers code and model analysis enhancements, updated EMF UML2, and UML Action Semantics support. MagicDraw 12.5 contains major improvements in quality, general usability, and performance improvements, and contains significant bug fixes. In addition, MagicDraw 12.5 comes with enhancements to the SysML, DoDAF and MagicRq plugins.

 

“We have received a lot of requests from open-source Model Driven Architecture (MDA) tools users for more seamless integrations with AndroMDA and openArchitectureWare. And we are committed to make MagicDraw the MDA developer’s modeling dream choice by providing a more convenient way to work in MagicDraw’s modeling environment, thus eliminating the time of transformation from UML model to working code. MagicDraw is a leader in supporting MDA tools within the modeling environment, and we are listening to the growing MDA community around the world,” said Gary Duncanson, President of No Magic.

 

Additionally, the new version of MagicDraw Teamwork Server integrates with the most popular version control system repositories IBM® Rational® ClearCase® and Subversion. The integrations allow maintenance of all the development artifacts in one repository, thus minimizing administration costs. Thus, no additional maintenance burdens are necessary – such as backing up the data, constantly monitoring growing disk space, necessary for storing project versions.

 

MagicDraw 12.5 delivers improved code and model analysis. It provides a convenient means to see the logical dependencies between classes and packages in form of UML dependencies. This is especially helpful after doing reverse engineering.  Updated import/export into the latest EMF UML2 2.x allows interchange of UML 2 models with other UML modeling or MDA tools supporting EMF UML2 2.x. Added support of UML Action Semantics gives additional flexibility for MagicDraw users to create their architectures in a fast and convenient way.

 

MagicDraw 12.5 includes general usability and performance improvements, and contains significant bug fixes.  Along with bug fixes in the main application, similar usability and performance improvements were made in the SysML, DoDAF and MagicRq plugins.

 

MagicDraw 12.5 was a ‘User Response’ release, taking almost 70% of their implementation requests.  MagicDaw current users, and potential new users, should be delighted with the results of this release seeing that their feedback can make a difference!
