Together for Eclipse

This article was originally published in VSJ, which is now part of Developer Fusion.
Borland has released an upgrade to its Together 2006 for Eclipse enterprise modelling product, based on the open source Eclipse 3.2 framework, that includes new capabilities supporting architects, Java and C++ developers, Unified Modelling Language (UML) designers, business process analysts and data modellers. It enables users across the software delivery lifecycle to build and maintain software systems as well as optimise business processes through enhanced visual design.

Together 2006 Release 2 is integrated with Borland’s recently introduced Caliber DefineIT requirements definition product, enabling users to build systems from requirements by creating UML and Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) models. By providing a process for visualising requirements through use case, activity, and sequence diagrams, development teams can transform specified requirements into high-level system architectures and designs without the risk of ambiguity.

In addition, this release adds C++ modelling support, allowing organisations to employ the object-oriented aspects of the language for system development. To increase developer productivity, Together 2006 provides C++ LiveSource to help keep models and code synchronised at all times, as well as C++ design patterns and source code metrics.

Other key capabilities of Together 2006 for Eclipse Release 2 include Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) support to enable analysts to visually model business processes and workflows; Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) support to aid architects in the definition and transformation of architectures from UML-based platform-independent models which can target multiple platforms; SOA manageability and model and code quality assurance.
