Software engineering easy for Mac OS X.Excel Software have begun shipping MacA&D OSX See Mac OS X. 1.0, is a software engineering tool that automates requirements management, software modeling, code generation, reengineering and flexible report generation. It implements the full 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. notation for object-oriented software design. Package and class diagrams show class structure. Use cases identify the system boundary and capture the functional requirements. Statecharts define specific states of a system and events that cause transitions between states. Object interactions are shown on communication or sequence diagrams, while activity diagrams reveal parallel behavior. Deployment diagrams illustrate runtime relationships for hardware and software components. MacA&D OSX supports structured analysis and design of multi-tasking, real-time systems. Data and control flow diagrams show the flow of information through a system. State diagrams and tables identify modes of operation and event handling. Task diagrams illustrate threads of execution connected by operating system services. Structure charts highlight call structure between modules.
Database designers use entity-relation diagrams (ERDS ERDS Equipment Removal Data Sheet ) to illustrate logical and physical views of an information system. These data models identify tables, views, constraints, assertions, triggers, indexes, procedures and other SQL SQL

Computer programming language used for retrieving records or parts of records in databases and performing various calculations before displaying the results. elements that are used to automatically generate the SQL schema code for an RDBMS (Relational DataBase Management System) See relational database and DBMS.
RDBMS - relational database . Designers can toggle between logical and physical models and show different levels of detail on the diagrams.
MacA&D OSX provides an integrated solution for managing requirements with capabilities to identify, specify, group, track and control requirements. To leverage its modeling environment, it has code generation for object-oriented, procedural and database designs. In conjunction with MacTranslator, class, structure and data models can be automatically generated from code. The extensive suits of verification, balancing, import and export commands help locate information, check for errors and share work with other users, development tools and platforms. The built-in, fully scriptable report generator Same as report writer. comes with over a dozen standard reports for viewing project information using an HTML HTML
