  • Optional – the view is optional
  • Mandatory – the view is mandatory
Attribute View Optionality specifies the optionality for import attribute views:
  • Same as parent view – the optionality is the same as the parent entity view
  • Optional - the view is optional
  • Mandatory - the view is mandatory
  • Same as attribute definition – the optionality is the same as the attribute’s optionality


  Studio Developer Code Generation
Posted by: Darius Panahy - 2020-07-08, 08:20 AM - Forum: IET News and Announcements - No Replies

The beta test of the new GA Gen Generator APIs has completed successfully and these have now been published as official PTFs for CA Gen 8.6.

This enhancement to CA Gen has been delivered as a partnership between Broadcom and IET as detailed in the CA Gen Edge forum.

The APIs enable the generation of code for all supported platforms from Studio Developer.

To enable code generation for Studio Developer, download the latest release of Studio Developer from the IET Support Centre and also apply the following PTFs to your CA Gen 8.6 toolset:

  • GSN86202
  • TSN86208


  Studio Developer Code Generation Beta Test
Posted by: Darius Panahy - 2020-06-12, 10:50 AM - Forum: IET News and Announcements - Replies (3)

IET and Broadcom are delighted to announce the availability of a new generation feature in IET's Studio Developer which uses the recently provided code generation APIs for CA Gen.

Studio Developer is an add-on module for CA Gen that provides a modern and intuitive user interface based on Eclipse, with notably a new action diagrammer with features that have been on most CA Gen developer's wish list for some time, including keyboard driven entry, an undo/redo capability, auto-suggest / complete coding aids, more flexible editing of statements, and much more. There is also an improved UI Designer, a powerful Model Explorer, and a high level of compatibility with the legacy Gen toolset, so it is very easy to use by both experienced and new CA Gen developers.

One limitation until now has been a lack of generation support from the local model. To address this, Broadcom and IET have collaborated on the development of new workstation APIs for code generation which have enabled us to support code generation from within Studio Developer.

The new release of Studio Developer with code generation support is now available for beta testing. If you are interested in participating in the beta test of Studio Developer's code generation capability, please contact me via email: darius.panahy@iet.co.uk.


  Merging IET Community and Support Centre accounts
Posted by: Darius Panahy - 2020-06-10, 01:41 PM - Forum: IET News and Announcements - No Replies

Earlier this year we launched the IET Support Centre web site as the place to download software, view known problems, raise issues and also subscribe to email notifications.

More recently the IET Community was launched which is where we now post news items and which also provides a subscription feed capability.

To make it easier to manage your access to these sites and also manage which news items you wish to subscribe to, we have decided to merge the user accounts so that you now logon to the IET Support Centre using your IET Community email address and password.

From now on we will only post news items and product updates on the community site, so if you wish to receive emails when posts are made to any of the forums, please subscribe to these. The Tips and Techniques forum includes a post on how to do this.


  Announcing the IET Community
Posted by: Darius Panahy - 2020-06-03, 03:12 PM - Forum: IET News and Announcements - No Replies

IET are pleased to announce a new feature on our web site, the IET Community.

IET Community is a bulletin board where we be posting our news and tips, replacing the News page on our web site and the IET Blog.

More importantly though, it is also a discussion forum where we actively encourage all of our customers and partners to contribute


The background to setting up this new community is that we feel a greater sharing of ideas and resources would be of benefit to you all: our customers. We have recently had a number of discussions with some of you over various topics including DevOps, web services and best practice. And whilst IET has always prided itself on the level of support and advice we offer, (which means that there has not been the need for a community forum to handle product support issues or advice), our recent discussions on interesting topics like DevOps and product integrations have made us also reflect that there is a lot of potential out there for sharing your own valuable experiences, knowledge and perspectives with others: be it current challenges you are facing or taking advantage of new technologies and techniques.

We want to open up access to as many as possible and so please publicise the site to all of your CA Gen developers and support staff.  We hope that this community becomes a useful and valuable resource and helps promote improvements in all of our use of CA Gen, so don’t be shy – get posting!  

To allow the community to be used by anyone, regardless of whether they are an IET customer or not, it does require a separate login, but this is a simple process using the Register button on the Community home page.

Please note that the IET Community does not replace or change the existing support process, so please continue to send support requests via email, phone or the IET Support Centre.
