- Wireflow diagram - A wireframe-based flow chart: Wireframes is a widely adopted UX tool that allows designer and client to work together in identifying the content and functionality of screens. A wireflow makes UX even more effective by harnessing the power of wireframe and flowchart, creating a step-based UX diagram that illustrates the steps and decision points of particular scenarios and the possible navigation paths throughout these steps.
- Animating Wireflow diagram: As long as a user interaction involves alternate and exceptional cases, there are multiple paths of wireflow that can be navigated. To reduce the application complexity, the wireflow editor allows you to specify a particular path (or often called scenario) of wireflow to be animated, so that we can split a user feature to be in sync with the partition of a simple user story or testing scenario.
- STEPS Wizards: Analysis and Design Step-by-Step: Seamless Techniques Expressed in Prescribed Steps (STEPS) is a powerful and groundbreaking feature for software development. Like a recipe that tells you how to cook a meal, STEPS are recipes that lead you through a series of well-defined steps for conducting a particular (reusable) analysis or modeling pattern for certain aspect of your development process. Your team can reuse or choose the appropriate Wizard in your project from the default set provided by Visual Paradigm.
- Visual API designer for Swagger and API Blueprint: Design, describe and document RESTful API in a total graphical way. You can design RESTful API easily by creating simple Class Diagram, like the one below. The graphical design approach, along with our award-winning diagramming interface make API design simple, straight-forward and error free.
- Visual Paradigm Online: After five years of consolidation, our dedication of high quality service in Agile Development has positioned VPository as one of the leading platforms in the agile and visual modeling industry. To reflect this tremendous expansion of VPository, we announce the update of the brand identity from VPository to Visual Paradigm Online ("VP Online") to re-message the products and online services we supply.
- On-Demand Model ETL: Design your desirable views of model data in a tabular form for bulk-view/edit/prioritize/visualize using Model ETL big data technology.
- Upgrade to Hibernate 5.1: To ensure that your work continues to remain secure and robust, we have upgrade our ORM support to use Hibernate 5.1, the latest version of Hibernate.
