Hi GenMyModel lovers! We are pleased to announce a new GenMyModel release. What’s new? In short: UML templates, movable links, flowchart improvements, history improvements and custom avatars. Let’s describe each point!
One of the most expected feature was the ability to create UML templates. For a lot of programming language like Java, generic classes are essential if you want to generate some code from your models. We are proud to announce that GenMyModel now supports adding template parameters to a class or an interface. You can also manage template parameters in the property panel of the templated element. Finally you can bind elements to templates using the
template binding tool.
The UML templates specification is not as simple as it may seem. And to simplify we will soon add the possibility to automatically bind a typed element to a template (like in Java when you instantiate a generic type).
Move Your Links
Sometimes when you build your models, mistakes can happen. One of the most common one is to create an association between two objects only to notice later that either the target or the source is wrong. Before you had to delete the link, create a new one, and reset the label and other properties. There is now a faster and better way, you can drag and drop the ends of a link! This works for BPMN2 flows, UML Associations and inheritance links and Flowchart segments.
The Flowchart editor was released a few years ago and needed a refresh. New tools have been added to shapes in order to quickly create shapes and flows from an existing one. You can now almost create your entire Flowchart models without ever using the toolbar!
History Player Improvements
The history has also been improved in order to replay more actions done on your project. This can be useful if you want to restore a previous version or if you just want to check actions that have been done in the past. Don’t hesitate to play with it!
Change Your Avatar
Another feature that you asked for, is the ability to change your avatar. You can now go to the settings page in your dashboard to change it. Note that if you logged in with a social network, you will be able to choose between each service.
Thanks for reading.
