The objective of the project is to customise a well-founded object oriented approach and to provide a complete object oriented software engineering tool, set in the field of intelligent financial applications built on top of relational databases. The OMT (Object Model Technology) methodology for analysis and design will be adapted to the needs of business applications, and the tool set will include reusable components libraries. A quantitative evaluation of the tool set and of the object oriented approach will be made, comparing development productivity and efficiency of results with previous developments of the Eastern partners based on more traditional approaches.
The technology transfer between Objectif Technologie and its Eastern partners has been completed and all partners have acquired a good practice level in the use of OMT for object oriented analysis and design. OMT notations have been enriched to allow database independent modelling and to support deductive rules declaration. A first version of the tool is now available. A set of specific scripts has been developed that provides functionalities such as consistency checking, libraries and component management. The final version of the case tool will also include Word 6 automatic documentation and C++ code generation improvement.
The software environment for business applications is intended to be enriched through business libraries components integration. Within ADORE, three libraries are developed: the first one provides C++ technical classes covering client-server business applications development; the second and the third libraries focus on SQLWindows applications development.
The industrial partners from Eastern Europe are particularly interested in promoting object oriented technology for business applications. The Western partner benefits from the experiments conducted in Eastern Europe to demonstrate the adequacy of these techniques in business applications and the possibility of merging different approaches in the transition from existing systems to newly developed intelligent systems.
