Excel Software Ships WinA&D 6.1 for Software Design

By Harold Halbleib

Excel Software began shipping WinA&D 6.1 with major enhancements to support UML 2.2, data flow diagrams, scriptable reports plus class models and code generation for REALbasic.

Excel Software began shipping WinA&D 6.1 for system models with simulation, requirements management, software design, code generation and scriptable reports.  The new software has major enhancements to support UML 2.2, data flow diagrams, scriptable reports plus class models and code generation for REALbasic.

WinA&D 6.1 enables a software designer to draw the 14 major diagram types specified by UML 2.2 including newly added support for Component, Component Structure and Timing diagrams.  The new Timing diagram can show object states with multiple state lines or shaded areas.  Diagrams may contain component objects, classes with ports and required or provided interfaces using ball and socket notation.  Sequence diagrams can include interaction frames with conditional regions.

Data flow diagrams have been enhanced to allow links to external child diagrams.  A process on one diagram can link to a child diagram in a different document.  This enables each developer in a project team to work independently on separate documents yet maintain a tightly integrated project with a global data dictionary and double-click navigation between diagram levels.  Data flow names can be drawn horizontal or vertical on a diagram with the name coming from the Flow Properties dialog or as a composite list from the dictionary entry.

Developers can model a REALbasic project with a UML class diagram, then generate or view source code with one click.  The integrated report generator allows a script to run commands and make dialog selections.  The new diagram management features include commands and buttons to create, delete, lock or duplicate diagrams.

WinA&D is a comprehensive tool to model systems, design software and generate code for SQL, C++, C#, Ada, Java, PHP, REALbasic and other programming languages.  It includes integrated requirements management, scriptable report generation, diagram generation from code and distributed team development.

WinA&D 6.1 runs on Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 computers as a Single User or Site License.  The Standard edition is $495, Desktop edition $1195 and Developer edition $1995. The company web site has demonstration videos and PDF white papers on a variety of development topics.  Excel Software delivers software tools to thousands of users worldwide.  Product lines include tools for software modeling, software development, software protection and licensing or marketing automation.
