Allen, TX, December 9, 2005. No Magic, Inc.®, a leading vendor of architecture modeling software, today announced the release of MagicDraw® UML 10.5, an upgrade of No Magic’s award-winning UML-based architecture tool. MagicDraw 10.5 extends its business process modeling capabilities to export Business Process Execution Language (BPEL 1.1) compliant code from Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) diagram. The new version delivers a brand new integration with ProActivity Business Process Analysis suite, updated NetBeans integration and improved GUI to increase flexibility and convenience using the tool.

 

No Magic continues its commitment to narrow the divide between business needs and the systems developed to meet those needs by extending a Business Process Modeling offering in its award-winning UML-based architecture tool. The new MagicDraw UML BPEL Export functionality allows the users to export their Business Process Execution Language (BPEL 1.1) compliant code from a Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) diagram. The outputted BPEL code can be used in BEA WebLogic 8.1.

 

“By leveraging our experience gained implementing the best support of UML and other standards from Object Management Group (OMG) in MagicDraw, we move to provide our customers the most complete standards compliant solution in Business Process area,” said Richard Green, CEO of No Magic.

 

The new brand integration with ProActivity Business Process Analysis Suite eliminates the gap separating business analysts from application analysts and system designers. Now MagicDraw UML imports static and dynamic structure information from ProActivity business models for instant creation/redesign of IT systems.

 

In addition to the new business process modeling offerings, No Magic continues to enrich its UML modeling capabilities. This new version delivers GUI improvements that increase the convenience and flexibility of working with MagicDraw UML. To reflect the changes in NetBeans IDE 4.X No Magic has updated the seamless integration with NetBeans IDE. This update allows the most standard compliant UML tool on the market to be used by the users of the latest NetBeans version.
