RMA: A Pattern Based J2EE Development Tool
The development process for creating J2EE web applications is complex and tedious, and is thus error prone. The quality of a J2EE web application depends on correctness of code as well as the efficiency and flexibility of its architecture. Although the J2EE specification has promised to hide the distributed nature of the application, application developers still have to be aware of this fact in both the design (architecture) and implementation (code) perspectives. In this thesis, we present the detailed design of our pattern-based J2EE development tool, RoadMapAssembler (RMA). RMA demonstrates how patterns can be used to generate efficient architectural code while also hiding the deployment logic and distributed nature of J2EE applications in the implementation perspective. Furthermore, it shows the generation of a J2EE framework as a process of assembling patterns in an incremental fashion using known inter-pattern relationships.
