Telelogic tools end reliance to code-centric programming

Telelogic has expanded its Tau Generation2 development tools with the addition of the Tau/Architect and Tau/Developer, which along with the Tau/Tester, are claimed by the company to end the reliance on code-centric programming to deliver faster and cheaper systems and real-time software.

The model-driven Tau Generation2 allow companies to deploy across the entire enterprise an integrated, multi-user visual tool solution that supports and accelerates the entire application development lifecycle - from system analysis and specification to real-time software design, implementation, and testing.

The Tau/Developer is capable of automatically generating complete applications directly from a graphical model, making it suitable for software engineers who design and develop real-time software.

In contrast, Tau/Architect is designed for system engineers who want to model large and complex systems using an industry-accepted visual language. This enables specifications to be validated at an early stage for timely and cost effective error correction.

Both support the Unified Modeling Language (UML) including most of the advanced features of the proposed UML 2.0 standard. This allows engineers using the tools to work on a UML-compatible platform and enable them to "speak the same language".

In addition both are also integrated with the company's DOORS management solution and the DocExpress documentation solution that provides automatic extraction and formatting of up-to-date documentation of the system or software application under development.

"The best measures of the success of our Model Driven Architecture (MDA) are its user benefits, such as increased precision, quality and productivity," said Richard Soley, Chairman and CEO, Object Management Group, the organization tasked to revise UML.

"Organizations using a model-driven or pattern-based application development framework containing a large inventory of business components have the potential to be five to ten times more productive and responsive than those that do not," said Michael Blechar, VP, Internet and e-Business Technologies, Gartner.
