LogicLibrary Introduces Logidex 4.0

Adds dynamic asset metrics and enhanced visualization and collaboration features

PITTSBURGH -- October 24, 2005 -- LogicLibrary®, a leading provider of software development asset (SDA) management tools, today announced the availability of Logidex 4.0. Featuring enhanced asset visualization and collaboration capabilities, dynamic metrics, and tighter integration with the IBM Rational Application Development Platform, Logidex 4.0 makes it easier than ever for developers and architects to create and manage world-class business applications.

Logidex makes it possible for organizations to govern the production process for reusable components, Web services, and other SDAs within a service-oriented architecture (SOA). Logidex features tight integration with the industry’s major development environments, including Eclipse, IBM WebSphere Studio, IBM Rational Application Developer, Software Modeler and Software Architect, Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, Borland JBuilder, and SAP NetWeaver.

Said Greg Coticchia, CEO of LogicLibrary. “Logidex 4.0 simplifies impact analysis, provides a deeper understanding and control of assets, and delivers automatic dissemination of asset information to users. With our support for leading systems, such as IBM WebSphere 6.0, Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, and Oracle 10g, LogicLibrary customers have the flexibility to make sure their releases are always in-line with business requirements.”

Logidex 4.0 includes:

  • Dynamic Asset Metrics: Developers and architects can make better-informed decisions with quick access to key metrics provided by LogicLibrary. Easily generated via the many IDEs supported by Logidex, users simply click on a new option titled “View Metrics” to quickly determine important information related to the usage and enhancements for services. %%Advanced Asset Relationship Visualization: Featuring tight integration with Eclipse 3.0, Logidex uses a state of the art technology called Radial View to graphically represent asset-to-asset relationships. By simply dragging and dropping SDAs into Logidex ARV, customers can determine the impact that relationships have on new and existing application developments.

  • Integration with IBM Rational ClearCase/ClearQuest UCM: Services and components are automatically made available in Logidex at the right time in the software development life cycle without human involvement. Logidex uses the unified change management (UCM) infrastructure to automatically document service and component activity based on ClearQuest changesets. Logidex also establishes asset-to-asset versioning relationships based on ClearCase foundation baseline dependencies.

  • Really Simple Syndication (RSS) Support: Logidex users can track asset forum updates and persistent searches via RSS. These asset forums and search results can be directly viewed within an RSS aggregator and allow the user to easily keep track of asset changes, asset discussions, and new or changing assets which fit user-specified search parameters.

Logidex is a collaborative SDA management solution that simplifies the creation, integration and governance of enterprise applications throughout the complete application lifecycle. Its powerful mapping and discovery engine gives businesses and government organizations the ability to identify, manage and control the design, development and consumption of services throughout the distributed enterprise.
