Reqchecker allows functional extensions through a plugin mechanism.
The input data source can be extended to read a new data format. The built-in automatic text controller can also be extended with additional controls.
It can, for example, be used as a control platform for office documentation. This case is illustrated by the two plugins from the STUDEC company which offer the functions of proofreading simplified English (link) and proofreading rationalised French (link) (Français Rationalisé).
The development of an extension plugin requires the implementation of an Application Programming Interface (API) provided by Khilogic in Java language. Once created, it simply needs to be dropped into the Reqchecker directory to be active at launch.
Now the reader works without the need to install Microsoft WORD on the computer. The read speed is greatly improved. The plugin supports more features: tracking of changes taken into account, images, hidden text not visible, custom chapter numbering.
Cross document rules
The Cross document rules check module allows you to control how requirements are covered in different documents, for example by ensuring that all high-level requirements are covered in both the software architecture AND the low-level requirements. This type of control is necessary to implement the V-cycle rules of IEC 62304, DO178C, ISO 26262, etc.
Default document mode improvement
The default mode assigned to a new document is improved: if the document can be read in “database” mode then this mode is assigned, otherwise the most used mode for documents with the same extension is assigned.
