  1. Compuware OptimalJ 4.0 adds Eclipse support (3 messages)

    Compuware has unveiled version 4.0 of its OptimalJ enterprise Java development environment, which includes a new developer edition for Eclipse. All future version of OptimalJ, which supports model-driven archicture (MDA) development, will be built on Eclipse. Compuware has also launched a Pattern Plaza, an online exchange that enables architects to share OptimalJ transformation patterns and collaborate on implementation improvements.

    What is OptimalJ's market share among Java IDEs?

    OJ isn't an IDE so much as a design tool. I don't think any MDA tool has garnered much in terms of market share. Mind share is open for debate I guess, but judging by the level of interest in this news story I'd say we have our answer. Compuware has invested a lot in OJ, but it hasn't exactly taken hold (yet anyway).
  4. MDA, code-generation and OptimalJ[ Go to top ]

    In my mind, OptimalJ is still the prototypical (and probably by now very mature) implementation of MDA - and that "real-world MDA" (rather than the admittedly very neat theoretical concept) I equate with heavy-duty code-generation, which I consider A Bad Thing. The alternative, which is to keep the amount of code to an absolute minimum by carefully organising/designing/architecting/hand-crafting it, just seems so much more intelligent.

    Otherwise there is no real point to this post ;-)
