xtUML Projects with Legacy Code

Details

Overview

BridgePoint by Mentor Graphics includes the capability to simplify the co-simulation of xtUML models with components realized in legacy Java code, a common activity within existing BridgePoint projects. Known as Verifier IRC, this capability offers greater opportunity to leverage xtUML models deeper into test and validation activities. The capabilities of IRC are explored and fully demonstrated in this presentation.

What You Will Learn

  •  What is the Verifier interface to realized components?
  • When should it be used?
  • What is the coding style employed in IRC?
  • What are the configuration options available?
     

Who Should View

  • Systems Engineers
  • SW Engineers/SW Architects
  • HW/Electrical Design Engineers
  • Systems Designers
  • Projects Managers for Systems Projects  

About the Presenters

Presenter Image Campbell McCausland

Campbell McCausland is a Software Development Engineer, working on the BridgePoint xtUML product line at Mentor Graphics. A 15-year BridgePoint veteran, McCausland joined the BridgePoint team in 1996 from Napier University in Edinburgh where he was course leader for the Master of Science in Software Engineering. His interest in model-driven software development goes back to his work at UNISYS in the late 1980s when he was introduced to the early software design tool, Teamwork.

Campbell's first major contribution to the BridgePoint product was MC-Java, the model compiler that is now the cornerstone of BridgePoint's self-hosting capability. He initiated the BridgePoint port from C++ to its current Java implementation, simultaneously moving it under the Eclipse infrastructure. He later created the first self- hosted Verifier implementation and, shortly afterwards, added the Verifier-Java interface. Campbell graduated from the University of Bristol, UK.

Presenter Image Cortland Starrett

Cortland Starrett is the Engineering Manager of the BridgePoint xtUML product line, leading development of executable UML modeling and translation technology at Mentor Graphics. He is responsible for the production of tools and methods for translating xtUML models into source code such as C, SystemC, Java, and VHDL.

Before coming to Mentor Graphics, Starrett previously served on engineering staffs at Pitney Bowes and IBM. Cort is an inventor, holding several patents, and author of many published technical papers. He received a BS in Electrical Engineering from Purdue in 1988.
