Linux Software Map: TCM - Toolkit for Conceptual Modeling

  • Description: TCM is a collection of graphical editors for different software specification methods. It contains a.o. generic editors (for generic diagrams, tables and trees), editors for Structured Analysis (entity-relationship diagrams, data and event flow diagrams, state-transition diagrams, function refinement trees etc.) and editors for UML (static-structure diagrams, use-case diagrams, activity diagrams etc.). TCM supports constraint checking for single documents (e.g. name duplication and cycles in is-a relationships). TCM distinguishes built-in constraints (of which a violation cannot even be attempted) from immediate constraints (of which an attempted violation is immediately prevented) and soft constraints (against which the editor provides a warning when it checks the drawing). TCM is planned to support hierarchic graphs, so that it can handle for example hierarchic statecharts. Features to be added later include constraint checking across documents and executable models. In addition to the TCM file format, TCM outputs Plain PostScript, Encapsulated PostScript, PNG and the XFig file format. The TCM file format is simple to read and parse so other forms of output can be generated easily.

  • Platforms: Binaries exist for Linux 2.x (x86), Solaris 2.x (Sparc, x86), IRIX 6.x, AIX 4.x, HP-UX 10.x, SunOS 4.1.x and OSF\1. TCM binaries for Linux use X11R6 and Motif 2.1 or Motif 1.2. (Lesstif is Ok). For each Linux and SunOS distribution there is an alternative distribution with 'statmotif' in the tar.gz file name that has the Motif library statically linked into the executables.
