U.S. market for over-the-counter securities. Established in 1971 by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), NASDAQ is an automated quotation system that reports on :SLCTY), a leading vendor of component-based modeling tools for multi-tier client/server development, today announced the release of SELECT Enterprise v5.1.
The new version, which will be available at the end of April, supports the Unified Modeling Language See UML.
(language) Unified Modeling Language - (UML) A non-proprietary, third generation modelling language. The Unified Modeling Language is an open method used to specify, visualise, construct and document the artifacts of an object-oriented software-intensive system (UML (Unified Modeling Language) An object-oriented analysis and design language from the Object Management Group (OMG). Many design methodologies for describing object-oriented systems were developed in the late 1980s. ) and will help developers achieve the benefits of Rapid Architected Application Development (RAAD RAAD Refugee Aid and Development
RAAD Rapid Architected Application Development ). Additional new features include integration with Logic Works' data modeling toolset ERwin, CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) A software-based interface from the Object Management Group (OMG) that allows software modules (objects) to communicate with each other no matter where they are located on a private network or the global IDL (1) (Interface Definition Language) A language used to describe the interface to a routine or function. For example, objects in the CORBA distributed object environment are defined by an IDL, which describes the services performed by the object and how the data generation and improved C++ generation and reverse-engineering.
In 1994, SELECT offered the first object-oriented (OO) modeling toolset to support the combination of Rumbaugh's OMT (Object Modeling Technique) An object-oriented analysis and design method developed by James Rumbaugh. See Rational Rose.
OMT - Object Modelling Technique and Jacobson's Uses Cases -- two key elements of the UML. SELECT's pre-existing support of these techniques within the SELECT Enterprise component modeling toolset allows its customers a smooth transition path to the new industry standard.
"J. Frank is using SELECT Enterprise for Forte as a large product development effort. The 5.1 version of SELECT Enterprise will allow us to use such UML features as the interface mechanism and categories, as well as provide us with a standard notation Standard notation refers to a general agreement in the way things are written or denoted. The term is generally used in technical and scientific areas of study like mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology, but can also be seen in areas like business, economics and music. for documenting the product design. We also intend to take advantage of the new IDL generation," said Bob Lent, distinguished engineer for J. Frank, a vendor of large-scale customer service solutions.
With this new version of SELECT Enterprise, improved code generation and reverse-engineering for C++ will result in faster generation, increased flexibility and overall enhanced performance. The addition of a CORBA IDL generator will allow IDL to be compiled by CORBA 2.0 compliant Object Request.
Brokers such as Iona's ORBIX, ICL's DAIS, and DEC's ObjectBroker. SELECT Enterprise will also include integration with Logic Works' ERwin as an extension to SELECT's Storage Mapper. The bi-directional interface will extract object model information from SELECT Enterprise via OLE automation See COM automation. and allow modifications to the entity relationship model to be reflected back into the SELECT object model.
"Today's leading corporations are building distributed OO applications to gain competitive advantage. However, they continue to leverage their major investment in RDBMS (Relational DataBase Management System) See relational database and DBMS.
