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 Real-Time Software Tooling (RTist), an Eclipse-based modeling and development environment for creating complex, event-driven, real-time applications.

Rtist provides software engineers with feature-rich tooling for design, analysis, build and deployment of embedded, real-time systems and IoT applications.

Supporting the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and its real-time profile (UML-RT), RTist allows developers to design their applications at a higher abstraction level than code.

With 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

Try HCL RTist today and develop stateful, event-driven and real-time applications.

RTist 11 2020.22 Now Available
By: Mattias Mohlin, Senior Solutions Architect for HCL Software
The latest release of RTist 11, called 2020.22, is now available. Here’s a look at what’s most noteworthy: Final Modifier Supported The C++ 11, Final Modifier is now supported by the model compiler. There is a new Final property that can be set on classes and capsules to specify that they cannot be inherited. The same property is also available on operations to specify that they cannot be overridden. Automatic Variables with Auto Keyword Another C++ 11 feature is automatic variables declared with the auto keyword. In RTist, you can now create attributes typed by a special auto type that has been added to the CppPrimitiveDatatypes package. You need to specify a default value for the attribute, set its Initializer Kind property to either "equal" or "brace" and make it static const or static constexpr, so that the model compiler will generate an initializer for the corresponding C++ variable. The C++ compiler will deduce the type of the variable from that initializer value.   Fix for Broken References An important improvement in the 2020.22 release is the better support for working with broken references. In the previous versions, the tool had difficulties coping with certain broken references, and as a remedy it sometimes deleted elements with such references. Now this no longer happens, and instead we have made it easier to fix broken references by means of a new Quick Fix called "Rebind Broken References". This quick fix can be run from the context menu of a broken reference problem in the Problems view, and it is able to rebind broken references that have been introduced by refactorings, where not all affected references could be updated at the time of the refactoring. A common example is when elements in a model library are moved so they end up in a...

Design Room ONE Gets Authentication Improvements
By: Alexander Strabykin, Development Lead at HCL Software
During several last sprints, the Design Room ONE team has been working on various improvements and enhancements in Authentication functionality. The latest Design Room ONE 2.0 2020.16, which is a part of HCL RTist, brings multiple important updates. First, we simplified the installation and configuration procedure significantly by introducing Docker support. Now, with a fewer commands, users can get Keycloak, NodeJS, Mongo running and connected, watch the demo video or check the detailed instruction on GitHub to learn more. Second, authentication is no longer blocking running reports against models published on the Design Room ONE server; updated instructions cover the necessary configuration steps. Before running a report, a user needs to enable Basic authentication scheme in Design Room ONE server settings, and after that provide necessary credentials when configuring the Data Source in the reporting tool, as shown below.     Third, automated publishing scenarios, when for example a new version of the model gets published to server each time it is updated in the repository now also support authentication. Two new attributes user and password were introduced to specify the credentials to be used during automated publishing process. And finally, multiple improvements were made to publishing wizard. If the Allow insecure connection checkbox is checked, it will also permit communication with Keycloak server, even if its HTTPS certificate cannot be verified, this comes handy for example when the default self-signed certificate is used in Keycloak deployment. Another improvement can be observed when connecting to a Design Room ONE server takes noticeable time, e.g. because of network delays. Now users are notified on the operation being performed in the header section of the Export wizard window.   Stay up-to-date with all our releases and features by checking out our blog.
