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

  • Live Event Date: September 10, 2014 @ 11:00 a.m. ET / 8:00 a.m. PT Modern mobile applications connect systems-of-engagement (mobile apps) with systems-of-record (traditional IT) to deliver new and innovative business value. But the lifecycle for development of mobile apps is also new and different. Emerging trends in mobile development call for faster delivery of incremental features, coupled with feedback from the users of the app "in the wild". This loop of continuous delivery and continuous feedback is …

  • Packaged application development teams frequently operate with limited testing environments due to time and labor constraints. By virtualizing the entire application stack, packaged application development teams can deliver business results faster, at higher quality, and with lower risk.
