Industries today are generating thousands, if not millions, of new lines of code in their complex and real-time systems via model-based designs.
Additionally, both new and legacy systems require enhancements to capture and react to the plethora of data being created by both people and devices, every second.
In order to gain a competitive advantage, companies need advanced tooling to support and scale their embedded and IoT applications with strategic uses of these model-based designs.
Companies that adopt new technologies and are able to react to this data to enhance the customer experience, gain a significant edge on their competitors.
Imagine a refrigerator telling you that you’re out of milk.
Or, a device that tells your doctor exactly where and when your heart has an irregular heartbeat.
How about a coffee maker that brews you a fresh cup even when you’re sleeping in?
So, how are developers creating these applications that need to be integrated with both real-time embedded systems, while multi-tasking with external devices?
Embedded systems developers are looking for a developer tool to deliver secure, high-quality production code with quick, agile methodologies allowing them to react to new business requirements while minimizing maintenance cost of long-lived applications running on many different device preferences of their users.
Also, companies strive to implement strict, continuous delivery processes to ensure code integrity and a stable, highly available production deployment of these real-time applications.
Introducing HCL RTist, an Eclipse-based modeling and development environment for creating complex, event-driven, real-time applications in C++.
Part of the HCL Software DevOps family, HCL RTist provides software engineers with feature-rich tools for designing, analyzing, building, debugging and deploying real-time applications.
HCL Software DevOps enables you to manage risk, control cost and drive revenue via a proven and trusted, end-to-end secure DevOps solution.
Supporting the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and its real-time profile (UML-RT), HCL RTist allows developers to design their applications at a higher abstraction level than code.
With HCL RTist, you can:
— Build executables in every way
— Help support large-and-small scale agile teams
— Easily install, customize and publish
— Mix graphics and code in designing of applications
— Detect failure using high-level debugging
Check out this infographic showcasing HCL RTist’s benefits and capabilities.
A major highlight in HCL RTist, NodePlus gives you all the necessary tooling for developing IoT applications.
You can use NodePlus for extending existing HCL RTist applications with features often needed in IoT applications, such as communication with web servers, emitting MQTT events, accessing databases, etc. Even if such things could be done directly in the RTist application using C++, it is often significantly easier to do it in a language that is more commonly used for web-related tasks.
For example, NodePlus lets you develop using Node-RED, a popular “low code” tool where graphical flows of interconnected nodes can realize sophisticated functionality without almost writing a single line of code. Thousands of pre-made nodes are available for free online, and one can simply drag-and-drop them into an application to use them.
