Cradle version 7.5 is coming soon!
Currently in BETA testing Cradle version 7.5 adds some significant new features including support for ReqIF and a REST based Web Services Interface.
Cradle import export facilities have been extended to support ReqIF (Requirements Interchange Format). ReqIF is an XML file format that can be used to exchange requirements and their associated metadata, between software tools from different vendors.
The Cradle Web Services Interface (WSI) is a REST based HTTP API. The WSI allows clients to use simple HTTP requests to browse Cradle schema information, run queries, follow links, view / edit items etc.
