Code generator completes OO design suite
The Code Genesis tool from SES Inc automates the translation step in object-oriented (OO) design, which allows software developers to create robust code by starting with a system model. After simulating the model to ensure that the system behaves as required, developers can use Code Genesis to translate the working model to C++.
Code Genesis is the final piece of the company's objectbench design suite, which includes the objectbench Editor ($5000) for creating the system models and the objectbench Simulator ($20,000) for verifying the model's accuracy. The Code Genesis tool includes a graphical model that helps organize the templates that map model notation to code and tools to customize the templates and design environment. Code Genesis costs $44,000.
