Advanced Tools for Object-oriented Software development
ATOS (Advanced Tools for Object-oriented Software development) was a
three year (1999-2002) research project financed by:
The research was carried out at the Software Systems Laboratory, Tampere
University of Technology. The aim was to study advanced tool support for
UML based software development. In particular, we were investigating new
kinds of automated tool support that could be integrated with a CASE tool.
Our platform for prototype implementations was TED, a software design
environment developed and used at Nokia.
The main research lines were:
- Visual UML-integrated scripting mechanisms
- UML model transformation / abstraction / synthesis / checking techniques
- Reverse engineering techniques producing UML models.
ATOS project was finished on schedule on 31st of March,
2002. The tools and techniques produced during the project were
further developed in the UML++ and ART projects.
