Summary of Intended Learning Outcomes
|1 - Design using the rich-client design paradigm, including code-generation frameworks and modelling frameworks.
2 - Apply meta-models in modelling and program generation.
3 - Implement software in Java which adds to a rich-client application.
4 - Work as a team in a collaborative, shared software development with intermediate and working versions of software shared by the CVS version control system.

The assessed coursework for this course is a single group exercise which is to produce a software product which is a plug-in for the Eclipse extensible development environment. The purpose of the plug-in is to connect models expressed in the UML modelling language to formal analysers. The plug-in is to be presented from a Web site together with demonstration examples and tutorials.
||In this practical exercise students will:
* Research model-driven development, rich-client development, the Eclipse platform and the Eclipse Modelling Framework.
* Design and implement a software product which connects UML modelling tools to analysis tools such as performance or static analysers.
* Collaborate to produce a polished, well-presented product incorporating a thorough test suite.
* Document the system using both developer-focused JavaDoc and user-focused Web tutorials.
* Design and implement a Web site of static HTML content describing the software product.
