ToscanaJ was created as an open source browser/viewer for conceptual schemas and optimized for a non-technical audience.
ToscanaJ is a Java-based and user-friendly instrument that comes with additional tools for creating the data displayed and to offer additional and more technical analysis capabilities.
The main tools are:
· ToscanaJ: The viewer/browser component
· Elba: An editor for conceptual schemas on relational databases. Database-aware and offering extra tools like exporting SQL scripts.
· Siena: In many ways similar to Elba (mostly thanks to shared code), Siena edits conceptual schemas that store their data in memory.
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
Affecting different programs:
· CSC import has been enhanced to import not only diagrams, but also concrete scales and contexts for which no diagram exists.
· OAL export of a context with unassigned attributes will now start with a line containing a colon followed by the list of unassigned attributes.
· Fixes to support running the software on Java 6 and 7 installations.
Specific for Siena (still not fully complete):
· Bugfix: starting a line with a colon used to create an object with no name, which caused errors when trying to display the object in a label. The behavior has been changed to interpret such a line as a list of attributes that may or may not be assigned to any object, thus allowing to define any type of context.
