Automating Software Design

A major European research project has developed a system that helps software developers take new software from the drawing board to executable code. The VIDE project (for VIsualize all moDel drivEn programming) began with the goal of making the development of executable software a single process instead of a sequence of separate activities. Funded by the European Union, the project has been underway for two years and has produced a design and development toolkit that is reported to simplify, speed up and decrease the cost of the creation of high-quality and easily-modifiable software. The system is based on a pre-existing modeling language called UML, for Unified Modeling Language.
