xjCharts is a visual toolset for development of application components with event-driven behavior. It drastically saves developer's time when dealing with concurrency and synchronization in multithreaded/multiprocess environments.

When do you need a statechart?

During its execution, a program performs operations in response to the external or internal events and conditions. The existence of a state within a program means that the order in which operations are invoked is important. For some algorithms, this event and time ordering of operations is so pervasive that we can best formally characterize the behavior of such programs in terms of a state transition diagram.

A state transition diagram (statechart) is used to show the state space of a given algorithm, the events that cause a transition from one state to another, and the actions that result from a state change.

xjCharts toolset

xjCharts includes:

  • UML-compatible Statecharts Editor / C++ Code generator
  • Runtime Engine (library)

The user draws a statechart (a state machine with a number of useful extensions) and xjCharts Editor generates its C++ implementation into the given source file. Being linked with xjCharts Engine, the resulting code behaves according to UML semantics. Transitions in xjCharts are triggered either by OS synchronization objects (system events, mutexes, semaphores and threads) or by timeouts. Actions associated with states and transitions are specified in C++.

xjCharts Editor can work either standalone or plugged into MS Visual C++ 5.0/6.0. In the latter case the Editor views are synchronized with an open MS Visual C++ document.

Download

Full version of xjCharts can be downloaded from

The setup file size is 1.2MB; it includes User's Manual, HTML Help and exapmples. Install and uninstall supported.

xjCharts is free for non-commercial use. Commercial users must purchase a license.

Portability

The code generated by xjCharts Editor as well as the source code of xjCharts Engine is developed as portable as possible. On the contract basis XJ ports xjCharts Engine to compilers / target platforms other than MS Visual C++ / Win32. XJ also sells source licenses for xjCharts Engine.

  • MongoDB has the flexibility, adaptability and extensibility to embrace widely varying data types and rapid design/deployment cycles. Combining MongoDB with our 5100 ECO Enterprise SSD brings amazing results in smaller, simpler deployments compared to legacy storage. In this technical brief, we compare two MongoDB test clusters, each using the Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM) for RAID configuration: 5100 ECO 3-node cluster: Two Micron 5100 ECO (1.92TB) per node configured as a software RAID 0 (LVM) Legacy …

  • Are you weighing the benefits of cloud storage versus on-premises storage? If so, the right answer might be to use both — a mix of on-premises and public cloud services with data mobility between the two platforms. Hybrid has piqued interest as more organizations look to the public cloud to augment their on-premises data management. Analyst firm IDC predicts that by 2018, 85% of enterprises will operate in a multi-cloud environment. Check out this easy-to-absorb infographic to explore five reasons to …
