The ArcStyler is the leading Architectural IDE for Model Driven Architecture (MDA) according to the OMG. It is a new class of integrated platform for architects, developers and project managers who want to leverage models as their design center (model-centric), and automatically produce optimized infrastructure for diverse environments from these models. The ArcStyler enhances classic modeling tools and code-centric programming IDEs by adding automated MDA capabilities to manage the quality and precision of models and to create and manage well-designed IT-infrastructures based on these models. The ArcStyler may be used to add a higher level of automation and quality to any modern development process such as the Unified Process or Agile/XP development. Its architectural support includes automated model-to-model refinement, model quality verifiers and pluggable MDA-Cartridges to create and manage diverse technologies such as J2EE/EJB (all 4 tiers of the J2EE blueprint including Web Services, JCA, Security), .NET or custom infrastructures (COBOL, Host, SAP, CORBA) in an open, extensible MDA environment.

The ArcStyler includes a unique MDA-Cartridge development environment and a standard MDA-Cartridge Architecture enabling anyone to extend all aspects of MDA support or even deliver their own MDA-Cartridges.

Both the OMG and industry analysts have identified the ArcStyler as the leader in a new class of platform for architecture-driven development, the Architectural IDE. For more information regarding MDA. Our recent Wiley including an executive overview, see: book on modern IT architecture, and the first book on Model Driven Architecture, has received top reviews:
