Hi

I just installed ProR and started to add some requirements I had in a Word document. This looks fine as long as the requirements are pure free text combined with some attributes. However, I need to list the operational states of our system and how different outputs shall be set in each state. This fits nicely into a table in the Word document. Any plans for supporting a table type in ProR?

I have currently also cut and pasted in some UML drawing in the word document. Have you planned a possibility to establish links from ProR to one of the UML modules in eclipse? Is there a way to establish links to external an url, file etc.?

GUI: Is there a way to quickly navigate along a link? Click on the link should move the linked requirement?

Best regards
Ommund Øgård

The traceability to UML could e.g. be done with the CReMa project that itemis will be releasing soon. It supports traceability of any Eclipse-based artefacts.

Hi Ommund,

> Any plans for supporting a table type in ProR?

You can create as many attributes as you like and display them in the Specification Editor. Is this what you want?

ReqIF does have a "Table Internal" (on SpecHierarchy) flag which would allow inline-tables. However, we currently have no plans on supporting this. It's open source, feel free to contribute. Smile

> Have you planned a possibility to establish links from ProR to one of the UML modules in eclipse?

We have thought of that, and from a technical point of view, it's not that difficult. But we currently do not have funding for this kind of work.

> Is there a way to establish links to external an url, file etc.?

This is all supported by the standard, but not yet available through the GUI. We have plans on implementing full XHTML support soon, which would support these features.

> Is there a way to quickly navigate along a link?

To a degree: if you display the links (ProR | Toggle Spec Relations), then you will see the link target in the right column. If you click on the link target, its properties will be shown in the Properties view. Note that a link target could appear more than once in a Specification, therefore jumping there may be ambiguous.

Last, keep in mind that this is open source. We always look for contributors, and you can also consider sponsoring a feature, if you need it urgently.
