IBM Rational Software Modeler (RSM 7.0 et 7.5)


Découvrez IBM Rational Software Modeler, outil de modélisation et de conception visuelle UML permettant de documenter et de communiquer les différentes vues d'un système.

IBM Rational Software Modeler est un outil de modélisation et de conception visuelle basé sur le langage UML 2.0.

  • Il permet aux architectes, aux analystes système, aux concepteurs et à d'autres spécialistes de préciser et de transmettre les informations sur les projets de développement selon plusieurs points de vue et pour diverses parties prenantes.
  • Il étend la portée d'Eclipse 3.2 (RSM 7.0) et d'Eclipse 3.4 (RSM 7.5), environnement de développement de logiciels ouvert.
  • Il est facile à installer et à utiliser, avec des options d'installation souples dans un seul produit pour Microsoft Windows et Linux.
  • Il constitue un support efficace pour modéliser avec le langage UML 2.1. Il vous permet de gérer en souplesse les ressources de modélisation afin de faciliter le développement en parallèle et la restructuration architecturale. Vous pouvez réutiliser des fragments de modèles dans de nouveaux modèles, fractionner et combiner des modèles, déposer et retirer des fragments de modèles séparément, et comparer et fusionner graphiquement des modèles et des fragments de modèles.
  • Il facilite la transition entre l'architecture et le code à l'aide de transformations modèle-à-modèle et modèle-à-code, y compris les transformations inverses.
  • Il vous permet d'appliquer les patterns de conception inclus et/ou de créer vos propres patterns pour vous assurer que les conventions et les meilleures pratiques sont respectées.
  • Il s'intègre à d'autres facettes du cycle de vie, telles que la gestion des besoins et des modifications et les conseils de traitement. Il comprend Rational ClearCase LT.

Features and benefits



Work with any or all of BPMN, UML, UML subsets, specialized UML dialects (profiles), the Rational Deployment Architecture Platform, and "pure" domain specific modeling languages. Mix validated modeling languages, 3GLs, and free-form notations in diagrams. Powerful tools let you quickly create UML profiles and generate tooling for them such as palettes, context menus, property sheets, and model templates. Configure the environment to expose only the capabilities that you prefer to work with

Breadth and choice. Support for complete solution architectures. Modeling that fits your business, your development process, and your role.

Comprehensive, scalable, and adaptable UML2.0 modeling supporting 100% of UML concrete syntax (semantics), and most of UML abstract syntax (notation) including Use Case, Class, Sequence, Activity, Composite Structure, State Machine, Communication, and Component diagrams among others. Simple free-form diagramming.

Capture and communicate all aspects of software architecture using a standard notation that is recognized across all of IT.

Support for multiple architectural frameworks such as DoDAF and UPDM based upon a common UML Profile for Integrated Architectures

Represent solution, product line, and mission-wide concerns in ways that are readily understood by business stakeholders. Richly connect and trace those to project-level representations of designs and implementations.

Dynamic Diagrams – Topic, Browse, and Exploratory. Diagrams can be based on queries and/or automatically populated and formatted as you navigate the relationships within in models or code bases

Save time and use powerful, intuitive modes of visualization that enable rapid discovery and understanding of the elements and overall structures of your solutions

Modeling accelerators:


  • General productivity accelerators such as template models, on-canvas action bars, connection handles, and content assist
  • Domain-specific profiles and accelerators for specific modeling styles such as services modeling

Speed progress, reduce costs, and promote process and architectural consistency


Leverage requirements-to-code traceability to


  • Identify missing or incorrect specifications or realizations.
  • Analyze impacts of proposed changes
  • Manage risks and projects more effectively

Open, extensible modeling, model validation, model analysis, and transformation frameworks

Quickly and easily develop plug-ins to customize the tools and provide new functionality, additional development efficiencies, and competitive business advantage

Team modeling support


  • Flexible model management and architectural re-factoring that lets you split, combine, compare and merge models and model fragments.
  • Powerful, patented technologies for enabling parallel model development
  • Formally supported SCM solutions are Rational ClearCase, Rational Team Concert, and CVS.
  • Other SCM solutions, while not supported by IBM, may work provided that their creators provide Eclipse plugins that make proper use of the Eclipse Compare framework. Check with your SCM vendor

Provides all the capabilities required to support collocated and distributed teams in designing and developing applications.
