Object Insight Announces New Object Modeling Tool

Object Insight announced Javision, an object modeling tool designed to enable Java programmers to shorten development time by making code more manageable and accessible for re-use.

The vendor said that by using Javision, developers can instantly visualize the structure of their code and create a visual blueprint.

"A major obstacle to successful Java development is the lack of a good code/design iterative development lifecycle," said Ron Suarez, president of Object Insight, said. "Good design requires visualization and filtering tools that can provide control over the life of a Java project and aid in understanding and documenting the complexity of multiple class libraries and beans."

"For $99, developers are empowered to visualize their entire application by reverse engineering object models from code," added Suarez. "This visualization then stimulates thinking about changes that can be made in a pop-up source code editor and compiled, while remaining in a diagram view."

Javision addresses the need for better code documentation and uses a single notation system, the Unified Modeling Language (UML), which is now an industry standard. Developers can edit source code from a pop-up editor for any class in a diagram, following an interactive code/design lifecyle. The vendor said that the iterative process--of design, prototype, develop, test, and deploy--can be shortened substantially by using the software.

Developers can obtain Javision for Window 95 and NT on a 30-day "try before you buy" basis, and subsequently purchase the product for $99.
