Software architecture management solution provides powerful way to manage
the architecture of Eclipse projects throughout the lifecycle

Andover, MA-January 16, 2006- Lattix Inc., the provider of innovative
software architecture management solutions, today announced the immediate
availability of Lattix LDM for Eclipse as part of the new 2.5 version of
Lattix LDM. With this new Eclipse plugin, Lattix further extends the
developers' capabilities to visualize and maintain the architecture during
application development by delivering the power of Lightweight Dependency
Models (LDM) to formalize, communicate and control the architecture of
Eclipse projects.

Lattix has pioneered an approach that utilizes system interdependencies to
create an accurate blueprint of large, mission-critical software systems.
Lattix LDM for Eclipse is the first commercial product to use a dependency
structure matrix for a highly compact and scaleable representation of the
entire system. With the Lightweight Dependency Model approach, architects
and developers can analyze their architecture in detail, edit the structure
to create what-if scenarios and then specify design rules to formalize and
communicate that architecture to the entire development organization.

Lattix LDM for Eclipse provides these unique capabilities:

* Map architecture to actual code : Seamlessly go from the big picture to
the detail. Select a subsystem and examine the code associated with its

* Test architecture and detect architectural violations while coding:
Maintain the architecture during actual development and prevent
architectural erosion.

* Refactor architecture: Combine architectural remediation suggested by
Lattix LDM with Eclipse refactoring capabilities in order to decouple
subsystems, remove unwanted dependencies and rename subsystems so that the
code organization reflects the intended architecture.

"Eclipse customers were demanding the capability to map their application
architecture to the actual code," said Neeraj Sangal, president and founder
of Lattix. "They now will have the means to test the architecture, detect
violations while coding and prevent architectural erosion."

Lattix LDM is part of the software architecture management solutions from
Lattix, which enable companies to improve and maintain quality, enhance
testability, lower costs through more effective development and manage risks
by understanding the impact of proposed changes.

What is Different About the LDM Approach

The new LDM approach offers these distinct advantages over current methods:

Precise - The matrix representation leverages the system hierarchy to
aggregate dependencies and provide a precise big picture view. The LDM can
be automatically synchronized with every build to identify changes and
architectural violations. D evelopers can focus on their part of the system
while maintaining the big picture.

Highly Scalable - The power of the hierarchy and the compact matrix
representation enables the LDM to scale from hundreds to tens of thousands
of classes . The Lattix LDM approach has been successfully applied to many
large commercial systems in a various industries, including financial
services and telecommunications.

Easy to Adopt - Lattix LDM automatically extracts dependencies and builds
the LDM within seconds, so it is easy to deploy at any time in the software
lifecycle. Architectural patterns are easy to discover and enforce in the
dependency structure matrix.

Price & Availability
Lattix LDM for Eclipse and Lattix LDM V2.5 are immediately available for
Java and C/C ++, with prices starting at $995 USD per developer license. A
free Community Edition is also available.

About Lattix
Lattix is the leader of software architecture management solutions that
deliver higher software quality and lower risk throughout the application
lifecycle. Lattix LDM provides a new lightweight approach of utilizing
dependency models for automated analysis and enforcement of architectures.
