Lattix Offers Eclipse Plugin to Extend Developers' Capabilities

1/18/2006 - Lattix, Inc., the provider of innovative software architecture management solutions, announced the immediate availability of Lattix LDM for Eclipse as part of the new 2.5 version of Lattix LDM. With this new Eclipse plugin, Lattix further extends the developers' capabilities to visualize and maintain the architecture during application development by delivering the power of Lightweight Dependency Models (LDM) to formalize, communicate and control the architecture of Eclipse projects.

Lattix has pioneered an approach that utilizes system interdependencies to create an accurate blueprint of large, mission-critical software systems. Lattix LDM for Eclipse is the first commercial product to use a dependency structure matrix for a highly compact and scaleable representation of the entire system. With the Lightweight Dependency Model 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 provides these unique 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."

Lattix LDM is part of the software architecture management solutions from Lattix, which enable companies to improve and maintain quality, enhance testability, lower costs through more effective development and manage risks by understanding the impact of proposed changes.

What is Different About the LDM Approach
