Version 1.1 of isee.NET Framework includes support for updated development environments and additional features that will extend your ability to integrate iThink and STELLA models with other applications, databases or data analysis tools.
Take advantage of the following:
Microsoft.NET Framework 2.0 – Developers can now leverage new functionality in the Microsoft.NET Framework 2.0 such as Generics, Anonymous methods and improved ASP.NET architecture.
Performance Improvements – Performance improvements to the simulation engine have significantly reduced overall memory consumption.
Support for Graphical Functions – A Graphical Function class has been added, allowing developer access and manipulation of model variables defined as graphical functions.
Support for Message Posting – Messages defined in your iThink or STELLA model are now fully supported. Handle the new Simultion.MessagePosted event for access to posted Messages.
Time Property – A new Time property that is indexed by run number allows easy access to elapsed time by DT.
Reporting Services – A new ProvidesReporting class and Output.Values property provide developers with reporting services that mirror iThink and STELLA Table reporting options.
Adding Inputs and Outputs – New Simulation methods for adding inputs and outputs in code eliminate the need for them to be defined on the model Interface layer. The ability to clear output data for multiple runs in a single method call has also been added.
Easier Model Preparation – Improvements made in iThink and STELLA version 9.1 simplified the process of preparing a model for isee.NET Framework. By enabling “Show Pages” on the Interface layer, model builders no longer need to use Graphics Frames to define Interface pages. Developers can now group controls that will be exposed in custom applications or websites by page number.
Enhancements to ASP.NET Applications – ASP.NET application can now host multiple simulations within a single web application using the new MultipleSimsPageController class.
Visual Studio 2005 Sample Solution – A new sample solution that demonstrates how to use the Framework to perform advanced sensitivity analysis is now included.
