VP-UML supports object-oriented software development with an award-winning modeling environment that facilitates software design with modeling languages like Unified Modeling Language (UML), Systems Modeling Language (SysML), Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD), Data Flow Diagram (DFD), etc. Version 10.1 of VP-UML introduces 2 major new features, along with more than 25 smaller features and enhancements. One of the new features is the support of software design discussion with PostMania, a social networking platform.
Developed by Visual Paradigm, PostMania is a social networking platform bundled by Visual Paradigm Teamwork Server. PostMania enables software development teams to quickly and easily setup an online social network for their software design projects. Developers, analysts, testers, business users and, in fact, anyone involved in the software development project can join the network to view the designs, and give comments by rasing/joining discussions.
“Communication is the key to successful software projects,” said Angus Chan, product manager of Visual Paradigm International. "Our social networking features are aimed to encourage effective communication between business users and developers, and within development teams, which ultimately boost the efficiency of work and improve the quality of software product."
PostMania can now run within VP-UML, the modeling environment. Developers can raise and join discussions, directly when they are editing or studying software designs in VP-UML. "Developers can raise design issues through posting a discussion on a diagram, or on specific shape. The notification mechanism enables team members be notified immediately when someone has made a post, which facilitates speedy resolution of design issues." said Angus Chan.
The support of PostMania in VP-UML is available to software development teams who are using VP-UML as their software design tool and the Corporate Edition of Visual Paradigm Teamwork Server 10.1 as their version control system. Users who are running in an earlier version can perform an upgrade to enjoy the social networking supports.
