Model Driven Generation (MDG) Integration products tightly integrate Enterprise Architect, UML and related modeling standards with popular Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) such as Visual Studio, Eclipse and Teamcenter Systems Engineering. This gives you powerful visualization tools and traceability right inside your IDE!

Visual Studio Integration

Sparx Systems brings the power of Enterprise Architect and UML to Visual Studio.

The Integration allows developers to navigate the UML model directly within Visual Studio, perform MDA transformations to fast-track development, generate high quality rich text and web based reports.


Visual Studio
Eclipse

Eclipse Integration

The MDG Integration for Eclipse seamlessly integrates Enterprise Architect and UML into the Eclipse environment, providing users with the ability to navigate and refine the development model.

The Integration allows Eclipse users to use the built-in model discussion forum for easy communication and assist with collaboration.


Model Driven Generation (MDG) Technologies extend Enterprise Architect's core modeling capabilities to domain specific languages, UML profiles and frameworks such as Zachman Framework, TOGAF, DoDAF-MODAF, SysML, DDS and many more. MDG Technologies not only expand available modeling notations for Enterprise Architect, but can also provide validation rules, code round-trip engineering, model patterns etc. for specific domains and technologies.
