Modelling Toolkit - 1.5

The modelling tool built on ADOxx is packaged and can be downloaded by interested communities members as a standalone application. The download package is made available to all members.

This implementation provides a functionality to transform the modelled data into RDF, which also requires a functioning Java 1.8 installation. A download link and installation instructions can be found at https://java.com. This functionality also uses Apache Jena 3.1.0 (see http://jena.apache.org/ for more information) and JDOM 2.0.6 (software developed by the JDOM Project - http://www.jdom.org/).

Get the patch to fix a bug in the RDF Export.

Change history:

Major changes in Version 1.5:

  • Installation scripts for Linux and macOS created (check README.md of corresponding package for more details).
  • Added functionality for cloning models, available through the “Modelling” component in the “Model” menu.
  • Flowcharts: When executing through the button of the Start Terminal the user will be asked to provide values for all the required variables.
  • Added a "General purpose attribute" to every element and relation. This can be used when certain values/data should be stored at the objects, but none of the other already available attributes fit.

When migrating to a new version it is recommended to use the XML export and import functionality to transfer the models.

Major changes in Version 1.4:

  • Improvements to some elements for UML (hide name of Lifeline, diamond-shaped Relation Node etc.)
  • Improved the execution capabilities of Flowcharts (better "keyword-extensions", pre-set variables like this_objid etc.)
  • Added new concepts which allow to describe and execute external functionalities (e.g. web-services). Check "Edit > Attribute profiles" and "Extras > Execute External Functionality" in the tool.
  • Integrated the extend HTTP call capabilities patch.

Change history:

Major changes in Version 1.3:

  • In BPMN and EPC: Added possibility to further describe the decisions made in tasks/functions through elements based on DMN Version 1.1.
  • In PN: Improved and extended the execution and simulation capabilities.
  • Added an option to show models using mostly only black, white and gray for all model types except UML.
  • Added functionality which executes Flowcharts.

Change history:

Major changes in Version 1.2:

  • In BPMN and EPC: Added possibility to describe automated tasks (BPMN Service tasks, EPC functions) through Petri Nets or Flowcharts.
  • In ER: Added two properties "Data type (direct)" and "Auto increment" for ER attributes, providing more options to the generation of SQL-Create statements.
  • Added additional attributes to elements for enhancing the RDF-Export (e.g. specify element URI, provide additional triples, meaningful references between models/model elements).

Major changes in Version 1.1:

  • In BPMN: Merged "Intermediate Event (boundary)" and "Intermediate Event (sequence)" into "Intermediate Event". The old classes are still available and can be converted to allow model compatibility to Version 1.0
  • In PN: Allowed two special conditions on Arcs which control the firing of the transition without consuming tokens.
  • In PN: Added two model attributes "Visualize priorities" and "Visualize probabilities" to turn on and off the visualization of those transition attributes in the model.
  • Added RDF Export functionality for all models.

When migrating to a new version it is recommended to use the XML export and import functionality to transfer the models.
