Reengineering tool for generating graphic models of programming source code on Mac OS X computers. MacTranslator scans source code to extract design information that it outputs to a text file. That text is imported into the MacA&D modeling tool to automatically generate UML class models, structure charts and rich data models. MacTranslator enables developers to generate accurate models of unfamiliar code in minutes. Through a mix of options and translation commands, MacTranslator can process over a hundred programming language dialects of C, Pascal, Basic, Fortran, C++, Java, Object Pascal, Delphi, Objective-C and SQL. Programming models help developers understand, reuse, maintain and forward engineer new software. A developer can click through generated diagrams, select a diagram object and click directly to the associated source code.
What's new in this version:
Class properties introduced in Objective-C 2.0 are now captured. Static imports and generics are now supported for Java. Design information and source code files can be extracted from a REALbasic project.
New features have been added to assist a developer when translating source code from one programming language to another. Language translation projects are increasing common as developers migrate code between computers (Mac, Windows, Linux) and devices (computer, phone, iPad).
