LogicLibrary Adds 'Smart Controls' To SOA

Software development tools maker LogicLibrary is adding corporate governance tools to its service oriented architecture toolbox.

The provider of software development asset tools said its latest Logidex 3.6 comes with a Smart Controls feature that makes it possible for organizations to govern the production process for reusable components, Web services and other SDAs within a service-oriented architecture .

The release comes as companies of all sizes are faced with data-retention rules such as Sarbanes-Oxley. LogicLibrary said its Smart Controls feature in Logidex 3.6 users helps users define and manage software development lifecycle (SDLC) validations, processes and roles related to all software development assets.

The goal is to be able to see information that is actionable, and automated either entirely within Logidex or mixed with a customer's external tools. In addition, LogicLibrary said Logidex 3.6 includes integration with LogicLibrary's code-scanning technology Logiscan, expanded IDE support, additional integration with the IBM Rational Software Development Platform, and support for Firefox.

Plus, Logidex's Federated Repository feature enables IT organizations to automatically share selected assets across interconnected libraries, company officials said.

Greg Coticchia, CEO of LogicLibrary, said the support for the distribution of reusable SDAs both enterprise-wide and across multiple lines of business is a key ingredient of the SOA governance process.

"The more a customer can manage, the greater their value and payback will be -- and no other solution provides greater out-of-the-box management of software development assets than Logidex."
