After a long, hot and very dry summer, it feels refreshing to now announce a new fresh version of Design Room ONE. The latest version is now 2018.33 and is available for download. In this release we have focused on supporting export of models from Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition (RSARTE). RSARTE is an Eclipse-based tool for development of real-time C++ applications. Learn more about RSARTE on this page.
Just like RSAD, RSARTE supports UML2, but in addition it also supports the real-time profile of UML (known as UML-RT). This profile introduces a few additional concepts, such as capsules and protocols, that are useful when modeling real-time applications.
You can install and run the Design Room ONE Integration plugin into RSARTE 10.2 in the same way as with RSAD 9.6. When you export an RSARTE model, Design Room ONE will recognize the UML-RT specific elements and present them in the Explorer view of the web application in the same way as in RSARTE. Diagrams will also look the same as in RSARTE. However, note that currently other views in Design Room ONE, e.g. the Properties view, are still not adapted to work like in RSARTE. Properties will instead be displayed as in RSAD.
If you are an RSARTE user, interested in publishing your models to Design Room ONE, please provide us your feedback. We intend to further improve the support for RSARTE in Design Room ONE over the coming sprints.
