MetaCase, the leading provider of Domain-Specific Modeling (DSM) tools, has announced the release of a new, feature rich version of their flagship software development tool, MetaEdit+®.
With this latest release, MetaCase further simplifies graphical domain-specific language (DSL) creation for the growing number of organizations interested in generating code from models. New language definition tools offer enhanced control, and an intuitive interface eases the task of language creation. As manual coding is not required, new languages can be immediately tested during development, with existing models updating automatically in response to language changes.
Updates to the integrated generator tools add reverse engineering capabilities, enabling users to read data from external sources (e.g. legacy code). This allows expert developers to define how legacy code should be used and integrated within the models.
Included in the release are several new example languages and descriptions, e.g. Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN), insurance product specifications, automotive infotainment systems, and home automation controllers, all designed to assist users in quickly defining their own graphical DSL.
MetaEdit+'s unique multi-user environment allows teams of developers on different platforms, and different modeling languages, to effectively work together. With MetaEdit+'s exclusive SMART Locks™ technology, multiple users can simultaneously edit the same models—even the same objects—avoiding lock-outs, and ensuring that all models are free from design data conflicts. Improved administrative tools streamline multi-user setup and maintenance, delivering remote control functionality for automating key processes, such as routine backups and versioning system integration.
"We are committed to maintaining our position as the technology leader in the field of Domain-Specific Modeling and Languages" said Dr. Juha-Pekka Tolvanen, CEO of MetaCase. "We are pleased to see the sharp rise in organizations that are now recognizing the productivity and quality advantages that Domain-Specific Modeling offers. MetaCase is continually working to make it easier for them to enter this exciting field by providing rich, powerful, easy-to-use tools that continue to outperform the competition."
