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 specialty

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 including an executive overview, see:
