Online PR News – 03-June-2010 – – Nantes, France – June 2, 2010 – SODIUS announced today MDConnect™ for DOORS solutions that help the DOORS® user community navigate through their requirement data in Eclipse and interoperate with other applications.
IBM Rational DOORS is a well established platform for engineers, allowing them to manage project requirements. It is often used in conjunction with other lifecycle tools of various types and from multiple vendors, creating increasing challenges to design and maintain traceability throughout the projects. All the necessary interactions between those applications make integration and interoperability questions more and more critical.
MDConnect for DOORS has been designed to facilitate access to DOORS objects in the market-leading Eclipse environment. Users can easily view, filter and search for DOORS items while working with other Eclipse-based applications.
MDConnect for DOORS is available for free from SODIUS’s website and is complemented by commercial extensions allowing DOORS to link with other applications.
The RSA Extension is the first extension available. It offers a smart integration of DOORS and Rational Software Architect allowing users to link modeling artifacts to DOORS requirements.
For developers working with Rational Software Architect and tracking their project requirements in DOORS, synchronizing data and maintaining traceability is often difficult and time consuming. MDConnect for DOORS with its RSA extension offers a smart solution to edit, maintain and report traceability between requirements and model elements within a single user interface.
By simply using drag-and-drop, users can visually build the relations and enrich their project visibility. In addition, a variety of reporting tools are available to manage traceability and impact analysis.
This new offering enforces SODIUS’s commitment to bring innovative solutions to address interoperability challenges and allow lifecycle tools to work together.
All resources are available at, the SODIUS website dedicated to DOORS solutions.
