Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Software Architect (with MSDN Premium)
Team Edition for Software Architects includes the new Application Designer, a visual design surface that helps software architects design, configure, implement, and deploy service-oriented applications. View larger.
The Application Designer allows users to create application diagrams that can be implemented into code at any time. View larger.
With Team Edition for Software Architects, you can keep application design documents synchronized with code at all times, design and configure .NET Web services visually, create and manage a living blueprint of an entire distributed system using the first SDM-compatible tool, communicate information using a common modeling language, and validate design prior to implemenatation to ensure that your distributed application will deploy successfully.
Visual Studio Team Edition for Software Architects integrates tightly with the Visual Studio Team System, allowing architects to communicate efficiently with all members of the software development lifecycle. Creating, viewing, or assigning work items, and sharing artifacts easily among all members of the team is easily accomplished. The Distributed System Designers treat models as first-class citizens in the development lifecycle and provide a continuously synched view of the code. This "trip-less" round-tripping ensures that the model remains up-to-date with the code at all times.
Team Edition for Software Architects offers a rich, extensible infrastructure for customers and third-parties to build upon and lets you leverage integrated partner solutions to extend the Distributed System Designers to provide support for management and deployment of distributed applications. Advanced customization features allow you to model new application types or application hosts using the System Definition Model (SDM) SDK, or extend existing SDM models.
New Distributed System Designers integrate seamlessly with the Visual Studio 2005 IDE, enabling architects to design, implement, and validate distributed applications. The Logical Datacenter Designer can be used to create a logical view of your datacenter, including logical servers, endpoints, communication boundaries and pathways. With Team Edition for Software Architects, you can import IIS configuration information from a physical IIS server. A scriptable deployment report captures all information required for deployment, and the rich extensibility mechanism enables users to create new resources, model new application and server types, and specify custom settings and constraints.
