  Teamwork by Cadre Technologies, Inc (see vendor list).
  It runs on SUN, ULTRIX, VMS, HP, APOLLO, OS2, etc, with X window support on
    most of the platforms with more to come soon (including some low-cost PC X
    emulators.     [from cadreri!sat@Sun.COM (Scott A. Trachtenberg)]

We have been using for the past few years the following two tools: (Schemacode
International Inc (see vendor list))
SCHEMACODE: automatically translates schematic pseudocode design into source
code.   Works for most programming language except ADA.  Available on PC, soon
on UNIX. Educational licence 250$ + 50$ per PC.  IEEE Computer had a good
report on this tool. Sometime last fall.
DATRIX: a tool for software quality assessment on PC and UNIX machines.  Works
for C, FORTRAN and PASCAL.  Measures up to 40 metrics and provides a unique
representation of the control flow, which is useful for testing, program
understanding, and program evaluation.  Expensive; educational licence for
500$, including up to 10 workstations.
We have been using these tools for the past three years in 4th year undergrad
and grad soft.eng. courses Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal.

  ToolBuilder (formerly TBK) by IPSYS Software Plc (see vendor list).
  It provides meta-tools (design editors, structure editors) a single
underlying ERA database (supporting fine structure) and a uniform UI based on
Motif. Tools exist for HOOD (design for Ada). Might have educational discounts.

  STONE by FZI (see vendor list).
  (see also archives file "environments") - An SEE for research and education.
An OODBS called OBST is used as the core of the environment.  OBST is available
via anonymous ftp from []. OBST provides currently an
interface to C++.  A call interfaces to C is also available, as well as an
embedding of OBST into the interactive tool command language TCL.  [from
Bernhard Schiefer <>]

  Rational Environment by Rational (see vendor list).
  A tightly integrated, interactive software engineering environment for total
lifecycle control of Ada projects. Supports design, development, unit test,
maintenance, verification, document generation, configuration management,
subsystem tools, incremental compilation. Can also integrate with external
front-end CASE tools and external target compilers.  [from: Bob Geiger

  Objectory by Objective Systems (see vendor list).
  An object-oriented Analysis and Design method with supporting CASE-tool. The
tool is a multi-user tool with a central repository and includes multiple
diagram and documentation techniques, consistency checks, traceability, etc. It
covers several models including Requirements, Analysis and Design models and
also C++ code generation. The tool runs on multiple platforms. An overview of
Objectory can be found in "Object-Oriented Software Engineering - A use case
driven approach", by Jacobson et al, published by Addison-Wesley 1992.

  OOD (see by
Prof. Taegyun Kim of Pusan University in South Korea.
  A free tool for educational use, based on Rumbaugh's Object Modeling
Technique.  Prof. Kim has built it on a SPARC, but it should build on most UNIX
systems with X11-R5, Motif-1.2 and a "reasonable" C++ compiler.

  Bridgepoint (see
Engineering/blurb/bridgepoint.html) by Objective Spectrum, Inc. (see vendor
  Set of CASE tools for Shlaer-Mellor OOAD (from analysis to code generation).
Significantly reduced fees are possible for educational institutions.
