EventHelix.com 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.

Price and Availability

EventStudio 2.5 is available now. The single license is priced at US
$99;
deeply discounted multi-license packs are also available.
EventStudio can be ordered from http://www.EventHelix.com/EventStudio
