COVERS 3.1a: object-oriented modeling, code generation and simulation software.

COVERS 3.1a - visual object-oriented modeling, code generation and simulation software. Supports development of real-time applications and can be used with Microsoft Visual C++ 5.0 [http://www.xjtek.com]

Area of application:

includes reactive systems like:

  • Real-time applications
  • Distributed algorithms
  • Communication systems and protocols

Scenario of using COVERS:

  1. The user specifies the system under development as a set of Active Object classes using COVERS visual structure and behavior editors.
  2. COVERS generates a C++ class for each Active Object class. The C++ code is open for the user modifications at this stage.
  3. COVERS compiles the generated code using the built-in compiler and links it with either
    • virtual time engine to produce an interactive visual simulation model
    • real-time engine to produce a real-time application.
  4. Alternatively to step 3, the user can include the generated C++ files and the library containing monitor in MS Visual C++ 5.0 project as a part of a bigger application.

Features:

  • OBJECT-ORIENTED MODELING LANGUAGE for building hierarchical models of arbitrary complexity and scale.
  • VISUAL. All stages of model development are performed within a single visual environment with wide debugging and animation capabilities.
  • STATECHARTS are supported - an advanced notation for object behavior description included in the Unified Modeling Language.
  • FORMAL SEMANTICS. COVERS simulation engine is build according to the formally defined language semantics and treats correctly the subtle aspects of concurrent system behavior, such as nondeterminism, atomicity or racing.
  • LIBRARIES of frequently used objects (e.g. resources, networks) are supplied with COVERS. The user can create his own libraries of reusable components.
  • FULL ONLINE DOCUMENTATION on the Web.

Operating systems:

  • MS Windows 95
  • MS Windows NT
  • MS Windows 3.1
