Adds new functionality to your CA Gen applications by extending the list of available functions in your models. Any external code can be turned into a Custom Function. QAT Function Manager will even generate the stub source for your platform (C, Java, .NET and COBOL). Learn more…

Features

    • XML Handling: This library enables Gen to handle bi-directional xml, including advanced xpath functions for easy access to selected xml elements.  It also contains functions for applying stylesheets to the xml files you produce to transform the xml into different media and/or file structures.
    • Formatting: This library contains various formatting functions that format to and from text and all of the Gen data types.  The functions allow for advanced edit masks to enable specialized formatting.  Although the functions were originally created for the QAT XML products (Exchange and Publisher), they are invaluable in day to day Gen coding.

Documentation & Specification Tool

QAT GenDocCenter

QAT GenDocCenter is a web based documentation and specification tool for CA Gen models. Import the Gen model into the tool, which automatically extracts analysis and design details from the model. A collaborative web based tool is then used to customize the content to document the specific business rules in the application. GenDocCenter then produces word documents that combine all of the information into Word documents that are formatted based on a fully customizable Word templates. Data model details, including TD names are documented both at the model level and within each action diagram to show the database usage per procedure step and/or action block.

Use GenDocCenter to document an existing application or build specifications for a new application. As the application evolves (new or existing), the documentation can be updated to reflect the changes. For example, the documentation automatically shows the database access (and TD names) for each procedure and/or action block so any changes in database access can be automatically updated. The business rules aren’t automated, but it does provide an easy web interface for documenting them as well as an attractive and customizable printed specification.

QAT GenDocCenter is a web based documentation and specification tool for CA Gen models.  Import the Gen model into the tool, which automatically extracts analysis and design details from the model.  From there, the web interface presents the information for easy entry and customization to enhance the content with the specific business rules in the application.  GenDocCenter then combines all of the information into a formatted Word document based on fully customizable Word templates.
