Structure101 for Java Version 3 from Headway Software
is now available in beta. Version 3 introduces the ability to define software architecture diagrams, make them visible to the whole team via the IDE and warn developers if they add or change the code in a way that is inconsistent with the defined architecture.
Structure101 Version 3
1. A new Architecture perspective in the structure101 client automatically creates architecture diagrams from the code, lets you edit these interactively, and map architectural elements to the physical code.
2. A new structure101 Eclipse plug-in makes the project architecture diagrams visible to each developer and warns them if they make inconsistent code changes.
3. The updated structure101 web application makes the architecture diagrams visible in a web browser, and provides RSS alerts when new violations make it into the project mainline.
