MagicDraw 14.0 Adds New Report Engine
October 04, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsPlano, TX / Chicago, IL, - No Magic, Inc., a leading vendor of award-winning architecture modeling software, today announced the release of MagicDraw® 14.0. This version of No Magic’s award-winning business process, and architecture modeling tool improves documentation capabilities with a new report engine. It adds significant performance improvements and allows you to generate up-to-date reports based on your own templates with custom layout and formatting. Also, MagicDraw 14.0 now adds C++ code engineering support for Visual Studio 2003 and 2005 together with other C++ code engineering improvements.
“The documentation is one of the most important capabilities of any architecture modeling tool. The new MagicDraw report engine is based on user-defined templates and it allows you to create documentation easier and faster. Users can create templates containing fields that correspond to the model elements or define their own report data. Templates can be composed with any document editor using the Velocity Template Language. Our Visual Studio customers will be pleased with the improvements in version 14.0 along with many more improvements under development”, said Gary Duncanson, President of No Magic, Inc.
The new report engine allows MagicDraw users to generate up-to-date reports based on their own template including specifying their own layout and formatting. The templates can be used to create different versions of report data and populate the template with data from any project. The new reports support a set of useful operations including, filter criteria in the template fields. This allows you to specify what modeling elements are included in a report. Also, MagicDraw users can format the template by the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) principle; tables of contents, headers and footers, and pages numbers. The report can be personalized with characters, paragraphs, and fonts that are supported by the chosen file format.
The newly released MagicDraw UML 14.0 adds multiple C++ improvements. The existing C++ code engineering features were updated to support the Microsoft Managed C++ (Visual Studio 2003) and C++/CLI (Visual Studio 2005).
