Actifsource V7.0.0

Actifsource code generator for any programming language


Actifsource 7.0.0 distinguishes between aggregates and compositions (like in UML) instead of ownRelation.

  • Aggregated resources lead to a separate .asr file on the file system
  • The lifetime of the .asr files for aggregated resources is managed automatically
  • Diff/Merge will work with much better performance on separated models
AS ResEd

License Restrictions

  • Use the Actifsource Community Edition for NON-commercial projects only
