Inc. announces the release of EventStudio 2.5, a
sequence diagram based system design and architecture modeling
tool for the Windows platform.

Sequence diagrams are a very effective way of modeling an object
oriented system. Unfortunately, most UML based modeling tools only
offer primitive support for sequence diagrams. EventStudio provides
advanced constructs for sequence diagram based object modeling.
EventStudio supports generation of message sequence charts (MSCs)
and call flow diagrams used in telecom and embedded system
development. Process workflow generation is supported for
business process re-engineering applications.

When modeling with EventStudio, developers describe the
interactions in the system in terms of a simple declarative
modeling language. EventStudio then analyzes the model for
design errors, inconsistent operations, resource leaks and
invalid timer operations. Once the design issues have been
addressed, EventStudio automatically generates sequence
diagrams and collaboration diagrams.

EventStudio allows the developers to explore a large number
of success and failure scenarios without the overhead of
individually documenting each scenario. The developers define
a base scenario and then define other scenarios by just
specifying the differences with the base scenario. EventStudio
manages the scenario definitions and generates the documents
by merging the base scenario with the specified differences
for each scenario.

EventStudio automatically handles diagram layout, formatting,
scaling and page breaks for sequence diagrams and collaboration
diagrams generated in the Adobe PDF and Microsoft Word Picture
(EMF) formats. This allows the developers to focus on system
architecture and design, without getting bogged
down by document layout issues.

EventStudio has been designed to handle diagram generation
for systems with a large number of interacting objects. For
greater modularity, objects in the system can be classified
into groups and sub-groups. This classification is used to
generate diagrams that focus on a particular aspect of the
system, thus enabling better understanding of a complicated
system. Some of the supported document types are: interface
documents that focus on the interactions involving an object
or an object-group; a diagram focusing only on the inter-group
interfaces; a document that only lists messages that match a
specified regular expression.

System Requirements

EventStudio 2.5 runs under the Windows NT/2000/XP platforms.
It requires 10 MB of disk space. The free Adobe Acrobat Reader
is needed to view PDF files.
