HCL RTist 11.1 2021.34 is now available for download. As always, there are several interesting new features and improvements.

Let’s take a look at some of them:

BIRT support

It’s now again possible to use BIRT with RTist for creating reports and data visualizations. This feature was available in version 10.3 but for an older version of Eclipse. Now, the more recent versions of Eclipse used with RTist 11.0 and RTist 11.1 are supported. Since BIRT is a fairly big component we decided to package it as a separate update site. You can download it from our InfoCenter. At the time of writing only the version that supports RTist 11.0 is available there, but within a few days a version for RTist 11.1 will also be available.

Operations in Enums

Operations in Enums

 

You can now create operations in an enumeration. They will be translated to global functions in C++. Having a global function that operates on or returns an enum literal can be an alternative to wrapping the enumeration in a class.

Template Parameters in Project Explorer Labels

If a class or operation has template parameters, it’s now possible to see this in the Project Explorer, without having to expand the class or operation. A new preference RealTime Development – Project Explorer – Show Template Parameters in Labels controls this behavior:

 

Template Parameters in Project Explorer Labels

 

Path Variables in Transformation Configurations

Path Variables in Transformation Configurations

 

You can now use path variables in certain TC properties. This is useful in those TC properties that specify a path, as an alternative to using string substitution or environment variables. Path variables are defined in Preferences at General – Workspace – Linked Resources. The model compiler was improved to report warnings if it finds variables in a TC that cannot be resolved.

For example:

WARNING : Cannot resolve variable '$(TARGET_DIR)' in 'Location' property:'$(TARGET_DIR)'

HCL RTist Development Team Announces RTist 11.1 for Download
The RTist development team has been busy finalizing RTist 11.1, and today we are happy to announce its general availability for download. The full version number is 11.1 2021.16, and at the same time we also release 11.0 2021.16, which is planned to be the last delivery on the 11.0 release track. All new features in the 11.0 release are also present in the 11.1 release. The only exception is the OneTest Embedded integration which we will make available in the next release of RTist 11.1 (expected to arrive mid-June). Let's have a look at the new features. Code Preview It's now possible to get a preview of what generated code will look like for an individual model element. This feature can be used for understanding how changes made in the model will affect the generated code. It can also be used as a means to compare two versions of a model at code level. Simply generate a code preview for each of the model element versions and compare them. You can also use this feature on transformation configurations to get a preview of all code and/or make files that it will generate. This can be of great help for troubleshooting build problems and to compare versions of an RTist application at code level.     OneTest Embedded Integration The integration with HCL OneTest Embedded allows you to compute and visualize the run-time coverage of state machines in your application. For example, it can be used for finding states and transitions of a state machine that are not covered by current tests. In this release a number of usability improvements were made, in particular in the Model Coverage viewer. For example, you can now choose to show coverage graphically in only some of the state chart diagrams.     Again, remember that...
