Key Features of HCL RTist

The new features introduced in HCL RTist 11.3 2023.19 significantly benefit software developers, enhancing their productivity, efficiency, and code quality.

  • Development of Real-time Applications:

    HCL RTist allows the development of real-time applications using graphical UML diagrams like state charts and composite structure diagrams. This visual approach simplifies the design and modeling process.
  • Code View and Editor:

    The tool provides a code view and editor based on Eclipse CDT for writing C++ code associated with model elements. It includes code for state transitions, enabling developers to combine graphical modeling with manual coding.
  • Model Compiler:

    HCL RTist includes a model compiler that generates optimized C++ code from the model. It offers customizable build processes, allowing the creation of multiple application versions from a single source model.
  • Efficient Run-time Library (TargetRTS):

    The TargetRTS library provides essential services like message-based communication, timers, logging, and more. It can be customized and built for specific platforms, enhancing application functionality.
  • Code-to-Model Synchronization:

    HCL RTist supports bidirectional synchronization between generated C++ code and the model. Changes made in the code are automatically reflected in the model, simplifying development and maintenance tasks.
  • Model Debugger:

    The model debugger allows developers to debug applications at the model level. It supports local and remote debugging on the target platform and can be combined with traditional code debugging using Eclipse CDT.
  • Compare and Merge:

    HCL RTist facilitates the comparison and merging of changes made in the model and code, providing version control and collaboration capabilities.
  • Team Development Support:

    HCL RTist integrates with various source code management (SCM) systems, with enhanced support for Git through EGit integration. This enables team collaboration and version control of RTist model files.
  • Publishing Models and Web Access:

    Models created in HCL RTist can be published to a web server, allowing access from web browsers. This promotes collaboration among project members and facilitates contributions to model development.
  • Traceability and Reporting:

    HCL RTist offers traceability between model elements and related items stored in external systems, such as requirements and test cases. It supports the generation of reports that include information about these related items.
  • Migration Support:

    HCL RTist supports migrating UML-RT models created in IBM Rational Rose RealTime and IBM Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition, ensuring compatibility and smooth transition for existing users.

HCL RTist 11.3 2023.19 is a significant update of the modeling and development environment for creating complex, event-driven, real-time applications in C++. Upgrading to the latest version ensures access to the most advanced tools in real-time application development.
