EventHelix releases EventStudio System Designer 4.0
EventHelix.com Inc. announces the release of EventStudio System Designer 4.0, a use case and sequence diagram based system design and architecture modeling tool that runs on Windows. Users model the system in a text based modeling language. EventStudio analyzes the model for design errors and automatically generates use case and sequence diagrams.

EventStudio supports systems engineering and modeling in several application areas. Modeling in Telecommunications, Networking and Embedded Systems is supported with message sequence charts and call flow diagrams. Use case and sequence diagram based modeling simplify object oriented analysis and design. Process workflow generation is supported for business process re-engineering applications.

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 release adds the ability to generate diagrams at different levels of abstraction. EventStudio adds support for UML style modeling of object interactions. A preprocessor is included in the modeling language. The preprocessor promotes design reuse by specifying common portions of a design in include files. Macros may be defined to represent commonly repeated message sequences.

Color, line pattern and font of an element in the sequence diagram can be changed using the style specification. The style specification can also be applied to specify the formatting and images for sequence diagram columns.

EventStudio supports single click synchronization between PDF documents and the developer’s model. EventStudio adds support for several statements. Actions involving multiple entities may be specified using the joint action statement. A heading statement allows the user to partition the sequence diagram into multiple sections. Bidirectional message interactions can now be depicted with a single statement.

EventStudio 4.0 runs under the Windows 2000/XP/Vista platforms. It requires 10 MB of disk space. The free Adobe Acrobat Reader is needed to view PDF files. EventStudio 4.0 is available now. The single licence is priced at US $299; discounted multi-license packs are also available. EventStudio can be ordered from http://www.EventHelix.com.
