MDG Integration and Enterprise Architect bring the best of UML 2.0 to your favorite IDE

MDG Integration brings many of the benefits and rich modeling power of Enterprise Architect and UML 2.0 to Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. Intuitive navigation and editing of the model is provided directly inside the IDE using the EA Project Explorer. At the click of a button, MDG Integration allows you to reverse engineer and generate .Net code from UML elements using EA's template driven Code Engineering Framework. Reporting and documentation is also covered, with high-quality rich text and web-based document generation built-in. With support for MDA transformations, Baseline management and Engineering of key XML based technologies, MDG Integration provides the functionality required of a fully fledged modeling platform right inside Visual Studio.

Keep on Track and Share the Vision

By providing developers with access to analysis and design blue-prints directly within the IDE, MDG Integration helps to keep architects, analysts and developers all on the same page. The simple and intuitive interface provided by MDG Integration ensures a minimal learning curve for developers who maybe more comfortable working from the IDE or do not necessarily possess modeling expertise. The model information is concise and easily accessed. A built-in Model Discussion Forum also facilitates communication across the whole project team, allowing peers to collaborate and exchange ideas relating to the model.

The MDG Integration for Visual Studio 2005 is only available for Professional and Corporate editions of Enterprise Architect. MDG Integration is included in the ICONIX PowerPack/VS.Net 2005 bundle, along with our EA for Power Users and Mastering UML Multimedia tutorials.
