Question Optimal J?

Hi All,

Did any one use or know about Optimal J?

If so please pass on some information. Is it an MDA tool?

OptimalJ is one of the leading MDA tools on the market today. Compuware itself is a major software publisher with revenues exceeding 1.25 billion dollars a year and close to 10,000 employees.

OptimalJ is built on top of NetBeans , which is Sun's open-source software development platform. NetBeans provides key functionality to this and other MDA tools - the Metadata Repository or MDR. For more information on MDR and the JMI interface to MDR, see the thread in this forum, JMI Watch.

OptimalJ has an advanced scripting language called TPL which provides architects with the ability to transform UML model information stored in the MDR repository into software artifacts - the heart of what an MDA tool does. TPL and OptimalJ's Repository API hide the complexity of the JMI interface from the user and provide a number of higher-level constructs for creating templates and patterns for code generation.

Out of the box, OptimalJ ships with TPL scripts to generate J2EE applications, including EJB and Web Services support. These scripts produce code which follows Sun's Core Patterns to a large extent.

For more information, take a look at http://javacentral.compuware.com where you can download whitepapers and documentation as well as participate in OptimalJ forums. This site does require registration (free), but it is worth it if you want to get more information on the product.
