From update site:

From binaries:

  • If you've installed jUCMNav from a latest build instead of an official release, make sure you remove the latest builds.

  • Additional help for DOORS Export is available
  • Additional help for CSM Export is available

Reporting Bugs / Usability Requests

  • Send your bug reports to
  • Include reproduction steps, sample .jucm files and, if applicable, copy-paste the error log messages.
  • If you're zealous enough, we'll create a BugZilla account for you smile

Enhancements / Fixes since 2.3.0

  • Core Scenario Model (CSM) Export and more performance annotations
  • Small issue where Scenario traversal complained about not having a valid parent.
  • Various bug fixes and enhancements in the MSC Export and MSC Viewer.
  • Duplicate map / grl diagram now sets IDs for the new elements.
  • Pointcut stubs and concern management for Aspect-Oriented URN. Work in progress.
  • New preference for enabling/disabling the automatic addition of existing links when dragging GRL intentional elements from the outline.
  • Major cleanup of SWT handles that were created and caused application to crash on Windows after intensive usage. (Sleak plugin was very useful)
  • New collapse default for outlines for improved scalability.

Known Issues in 2.4.0

  • Autolayout still a prototype
  • User documentation not translated yet.
  • User documentation only partially reflects integration of GRL and scenarios.
  • There are no extension points to give your own scenario/strategy algorithms and no UI to choose them.
  • Visibility of GRL contribution icons and text now can be set via jUCMNav's main preference page, but open editors are not automatically updated. You need to reload the model.
  • Memory leak. With very large diagrams (30+ complex maps), you might only be able to open it half a dozen times before you run out of memory. Restart Eclipse to clean memory or increase JVM heap space until we find the memory leak source.
