ARText - Software Component LanguageThe software component language lets you efficiently model software components. You can benefit from the easy and concise syntax, and the fully integrated editing environment.
The language focuses on the AUTOSAR Software Component Description Template, and supports the following features:
- Assembly Connectors
- Data Types
- Internal Behaviours
- Port Interfaces
- RTE Events
- Software Components
- and more...
Release independentThe software component language is AUTOSAR release independent, supporting all releases from 2.1 through to 4.0. With one representation of your model, you can easily switch between each AUTOSAR release through a project preference setting.
Bidirectional transformationThe software component language is not a one way street, you can easily convert your model to AUTOSAR XML as well as convert your existing AUTOSAR XML model to the software component language.
Succesfully used in practiceThe language is in a mature state, and is successfully used in projects today to define software component models.
Syntactic sugarThere are special language constructs included to help speed development, here are a few that are features of this language:
Enumerations - Easily and quickly define needed enumerations.
Star Notation - Conveniently specify parameter accesses, data read/write accesses, and data send/receive points for all elements from the referenced port.
Auto Connect - Automatically create all possible assembly connectors, by matching port interfaces.
