Silvertejp is an MDA-tool, a code generation and instrumenting framework powered by UML class diagrams.

Model driven architecture (MDA)

The basics of MDA is to use generators to transform a platform idependent model (PIM) to a programing language and platform dependent model (PDM) one can render to source code.

That is exatcly what Silvertejp does.

PIM input

  • UMLet, an open-source UML tool with a simple user interface
  • Java 1.5 annotated classes (used by Limax)
  • ASCII UML interpreter
