Development of an object-oriented CASE tool with detailed design information
MetadataShow full item record
The research resulted in the creation of an object-oriented tool for CASE that includes detailed design information- The system will include three major functions: a Class Librarian for keeping tracking all classes available for reuse, a Class Browser for accessing and modifying the details (members and functions) of the classes, and a Graphic Design Tool for developing graphic diagram of an object model. The tool will support the notations and strategies of the Object-Modeling Technique (OMT) as presented by James Rumbaugh and co-workers. It will also facilitate detailed system design which involves specification algorithms and concrete data structures for the software system. The classes created in the system will be used to produce STRIDES™ header file and template STRIDES™ source code. The design of the user interface was a graphic and user-friendly atmosphere that emphasizes a Windows-oriented event-driven point-and-click facility. The tool was implemented in Microsoft Visual 0++ for user interface and Microsoft Access for data management.
