SAN FRANCISCO Artisan Software Tools Wednesday (July 13) released a new version of its Artisan Studio product, formerly called Artisan Real-Time Studio, which highlights the concept of ergonomic profiling, the ability to build a compelling environment based on the needs of specific domains or applications of UML.
Using ergonomic profiling, Artisan Studio 6.0 takes on new menus and explorer windows based on the UML profiles the user is working with, including new icons, item types and diagrams, according to Artisan.
Artisan Studio 6.0 features a profile for modeling compliant Department of Defense architectural frameworks, which allows modelers to describe compliant architectures using diagrams and graphical notation, based on UML 2.0 modeling techniques and technology, according to Artisan (Cheltenham, UK).
Artisan 6.0 also includes multi-user change tracking, which automatically tracks changes on each model element, the company said. Artisan Studio 6.0 also offers choices of code generation on-demand code synchronization, in which a user chooses when code is generated from, or reversed into the model, or automatic code synchronization, which provides instantaneous synchronization of model and code.
