OMF 1.2.19 : Search tools and HTML generation

OMF OpenBlueLab Developer Studio

It's the begin of the creation of many tools to manage model simply. The first tool added is the search in a set of OBL files. If you search a particular class or a package in a folder, you just select the folder and fill the regular expression. The second tool is very interesting because it permits to generate a HTML documentation from a REF file. The documentation generated looks like the javadoc and contains all classes and all packages. We can now navigate simply in the global model and to export OBL model. We have added to the concept of deprecated class and we have corrected bug on the compute of dependencies.
