Lattix LDM V2.5

Lattix Inc., a provider of software architecture management solutions, announced the availability of Lattix LDM for Eclipse as part of the new 2.5 version of Lattix LDM. With this new Eclipse plugin, Lattix aims to extend the developers' capabilities to visualize and maintain the architecture during application development through lightweight dependency models (LDM) to formalize, communicate and control the architecture of Eclipse projects.

The product has an approach that utilizes system interdependencies to create a blueprint of large, mission-critical software systems. Lattix LDM for Eclipse uses a dependency structure matrix for a compact and scaleable representation of the entire system. With the LDM approach, architects and developers can analyze their architecture in detail, edit the structure to create what-if scenarios and then specify design rules to formalize and communicate that architecture to the entire development organization. Lattix LDM for Eclipse can: map architecture to actual code; test architecture and detect architectural violations while coding; and combine architectural remediation suggested by Lattix LDM with Eclipse refactoring capabilities.

"Eclipse customers were demanding the capability to map their application architecture to the actual code," said Neeraj Sangal, president and founder of Lattix. "They now will have the means to test the architecture, detect violations while coding and prevent architectural erosion."

The LDM approach promises to deliver the following advantages: the matrix representation leverages the system hierarchy to aggregate dependencies and provide a big picture view; the LDM can be automatically synchronized with every build to identify changes and architectural violations; the hierarchy and the compact matrix representation enable the LDM to scale from hundreds to tens of thousands of classes; and Lattix LDM automatically extracts dependencies and builds the LDM within seconds.

Lattix LDM for Eclipse and Lattix LDM V2.5 are available for Java and C/C++, with prices starting at $995 per developer license. A free community edition is also available.
