Modeling GDMO in UML helps us take advantage of the native information resident in existing, standards-based information models while building next-generation software systems.
New features that are common to both Rose GDMO Link and Rose MIB Link include:
Multi-File Reverse Engineering: More than one GDMO document, ASN.
New or upgraded features for Rose GDMO Link include:
Equally important, the Model Organizer establishes a protocol-neutral representation of GDMO documents by creating generic managed object classes (with attributes and operations) in UML.
The Model Checker finds and reports errors in "basic" syntax (names, relationships between managed object classes and packages) and in the mapping from UML to GDMO (makes sure structures are present, checks that mandatory GDMO property fields are complete).
Rose GDMO Link does a very good job of capturing all the information in a GDMO document or ASN.
ObjectStream has demonstrated that it is committed to building a product that is GDMO-compliant and continues to move towards implementing all of the primary GDMO recommendations," Embry said.
