Sun has put out a whitepaper titled "The Netbeans Tools Platform, A Technical Overview", which it has actually paid to include in the June 2001 Dr. Dobbs Journal. The whitepaper is available as a PDF document from the Sun site.

This whitepaper is very well written and discusses a major new feature recently added: The MetaData Repository (MDR). It will take some time to research this new feature but it seems that this extension was added to allow UML tools vendors to integrate their modeling tools with the Forte IDE.

The way this integration works is through XMI, which is the UML standard for model interchange. There has been a major trend in the industry to create integration between UML tools and IDE's. One of the best examples of this is Together/J which now has an integrated debugger.

It may be a while before any UML tools are integrated with Forte, but being an open-source project, this definitely should be an interesting development to watch.
