As a member of the Rational Unified Partner Program, NeuVis will provide ongoing support for key Rational offerings, including Rational Rose(R), the company's market-leading visual modeling tool based on the Unified Modeling Language See UML.
(language) Unified Modeling Language - (UML) A non-proprietary, third generation modelling language. The Unified Modeling Language is an open method used to specify, visualise, construct and document the artifacts of an object-oriented software-intensive system (UML (Unified Modeling Language) An object-oriented analysis and design language from the Object Management Group (OMG). Many design methodologies for describing object-oriented systems were developed in the late 1980s. ). NeuVis will enable customers to harness Rational's user requirements and design capabilities by integrating Rational models with NeuVis' NeuArchitect RAD platform as business objects. NeuArchitect extends these business objects into complete application models, adding methods, business rules, pages, messaging, and other attributes. NeuArchitect then automatically constructs and deploys complete e-business application code, including presentation, transaction, business object, database and transport layers, across a variety of leading technologies, including J2EE (Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition) A platform from Sun for building distributed enterprise applications. J2EE services are performed in the middle tier between the user's machine and the enterprise's databases and legacy information systems. and Microsoft application servers. In addition, NeuVis is developing a customized version of the Rational Unified Process The Unified Software Development Process or Unified Process is a popular iterative and incremental software development process framework. The best-known and extensively documented refinement of the Unified Process is the Rational Unified Process or RUP. (TM), a software engineering process, which is integrated with NeuArchitect and optimized for RAD principles.
"Rational's software development products enable organizations to more rapidly bring higher quality solutions to market," said David Abelow, Director of Field Enablement and Alliance Marketing at Rational. "We're excited to have NeuVis join Rational's Unified Partner Program. Together we provide customers unprecedented speed to gather requirements, model, construct, deploy, test and maintain applications across heterogeneous technology environments."
NeuArchitect provides developers the ability to reverse-engineer an extensive array of relational and nonrelational databases, ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) An integrated information system that serves all departments within an enterprise. Evolving out of the manufacturing industry, ERP implies the use of packaged software rather than proprietary software written by or for one customer. applications, and OLTP (OnLine Transaction Processing) See transaction processing and OLCP.
OLTP - On-Line Transaction Processing programs into UML class models. Also, NeuArchitect leverages Rational Rose's ability to reverse engineer existing Java code into UML class models. These models can be modified and extended with business logic, rules, and user interfaces within the NeuArchitect development platform, providing a jumpstart for creating complete e-business systems from virtually any type of legacy system, Rational Rose model, or Java code.

The expansion added 600,000 sq. feet of space and a 5,200 seat concert hall. The total area of the convention center is 1.2 million sq. feet. in Denver, CO. The session will show how to rapidly transform Rational Rose(R) models into fully constructed and deployed e-business applications using NeuArchitect's automated construction capabilities.

"NeuArchitect is a powerful complement for rapidly and automatically turning designs into fully constructed and deployed applications across all leading technology platforms. This combined offering gives customers even greater speed, quality and agility of their application development."
NeuArchitect-based applications are both "business agile" and "technology agile," providing customers with the ability to readily modify applications in response to changing business requirements, and to automatically re-deploy applications to future versions of emerging J2EE and Microsoft technologies, without changing the application.

NeuArchitect is an enterprise-class, integrated visual modeling and automated construction system that enables businesses to rapidly design, develop, deploy and maintain complex, end-to-end e-business applications. NeuArchitect is particularly well suited to building robust collaborative commerce applications that can readily access a wide variety of legacy systems and provide integration via XML and Web services.
NeuArchitect uses object-oriented visual development rather than conventional programming to dramatically decrease time-to-market. NeuArchitect accelerates development by leveraging new and existing UML diagrams, database schema, legacy systems, templates, and components to create detailed business objects and end-to-end application models. From these models NeuArchitect automatically generates complete n-tier applications. NeuArchitect-based applications are portable across all leading deployment technologies, across all tiers, and provide integration with an extensive range of legacy systems.
