TOPCASED stands for Toolkit in OPen source for Critical Applications and SystEm Development. It is a system and software engineering workshop based on Eclipse. It aims to provide the tools required to go from requirements to the implementation stages. Focused on modeling development engineering, it includes several graphical editors (for ECORE, UML, SysML, SAM, AADL, and more), an OCL rules editor and checker, several code generators (SMUC, UML2C, UML2Java, UML2Python), a document generator, gPM (a ticket tracker), xHDL tools, Tramway (a requirements traceability framework), and more. External tools can be easily connected to the workshop through its API or models.
Sculptor is a productivity tool that applies the concepts from Domain-Driven Design and Domain Specific Languages. You express your design intent in a textual specification, from which Sculptor generates high quality Java code and configuration. You can use the concepts from Domain-Driven Design (DDD) in the textual Domain Specific Language (DSL), e.g. Service, Module, Entity, Value Object, Repository. The generated code is based on well-known frameworks such as Spring Framework, Hibernate, and Java EE. Sculptor takes care of the technical details and the tedious repetitive work, and lets you focus on delivering more business value (and have more fun). The DSL and the code generation drives the development and is not a one time shot. The application can be developed incrementally with an efficient round trip loop. Sculptor is useful when developing typical enterprise or Web applications that benefit from a rich and persistent domain model.
Eclipse Code Recommender is an intelligent code recommender system which seamlessly integrates into Eclipse's Code Assist, and predicts only those method calls that are likely to be used by a developer in the current (code) situation. It can currently predict method calls for instances of the SWT framework, such as SWT Buttons, Labels, and Texts.
Visual Paradigm for UML (VP-UML) is a powerful, cross-platform, and easy-to-use visual UML modeling and CASE tool. It provides software developers with a cutting edge development platform to build quality applications faster, better, and cheaper. It facilitates excellent interoperability with other CASE tools and most of the leading IDEs.
gPM (generic Process Management) is a generic TOPCASED tool for business process management that can also be used for bug or issue tracking and for other almost any document-based process. gPM is composed of a server and several clients are available (Web-based, Eclipse Mylyn connector, Eclipse rich client). As gPM is a generic tool, it needs to be instantiated for each business process you want to support. Defining a business process consists of providing the product types, sheet types, sheet link types, and the life cycle of each sheet type. gPM configuration also includes roles and access controls, sheet type life cycles, dictionaries and translations, functional extension points, filters, and more. gPM has already been successfully instantiated for both simple development processes (like Mantis or Bugzilla) and complex industrial processes, like in the aerospace domain.
