Nenad Ukic (Neno) of Split, Croatia published a PhD thesis that has one of the most clear and concise overviews of xtUML I have read. So, even if you are not interested in complexity metrics, this paper is worth reading!
Presentations from xtUML Day 2017 Linköping
This episode of xtUML Day was the best ever. We stepped up from one day to two full days. The venue was stunning. The guest list included virtually all of the current key players in the Method.
Here are all of the presentations (that could be released):
- xtUML 2017 Linköping Flyer (agenda)
- Saab – Modeling at Saab
- Bounding Class Extents Using Constraint Programming
- Proposed xtUML Type System
- Type System with Abstraction
- BridgePoint Features
- Channel Modeling
- Long Term Support (LTS)
- Type System Background and Discussion
- Roadmap Possibilities
- User Experience and User Interface
Thank you to all of the presenters able to release their presentations to the community.
Self-driving cars pose challenges to testing. The quantity and magnitude of sensor inputs create an enormous test vector space. Traditional manual testing methods are inadequate to cover this multi-dimensional vector space with test cases.
To address this challenge model-based techniques are applied to manage the testing complexity. Abstraction and automation increase the productivity of test engineering. Model-based test engineering allows generation of test cases, test data and predicted behavior. Sensor test generation, automated Navigation testing and turbulence induced testing are elements of a strategy to improve the efficiency of testing for self-driving cars.
A case study is provided as an example. Conclusions are then summarized.
xtUML 2015 is a two day summit in Indiana this coming December. The event will cover xtUML methodology as well as open-source BridgePoint development. It will be a great opportunity to meet and learn with other xtUML modelers and developers.
The registration page on One Fact’s website contains all the details.
One Fact is committed to working together with the Executable Modeling community to move toward open standards. We want to collaborate with you to make Executable UML accessible to broad range of users. Join us!

Following on the heels of the BridgePoint Pro 5.0 release, BridgePoint 5.1 for community users and developers has been released by the xtUML team. Head over to the Download page to grab the latest nightly build. You may also want to check out the Release Announcement sent to the xtUML Newsletter mailing list.
The beta version of BridgePoint 5.0 is available for download. This is a “master” build (compiled from the master branch in the public github repositories). It is fully functional and useful for development.
This build will differ from the official 5.0 release by only minor tweaks and fixes found in testing.
