 ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Westmount today announced the release of Westmount Lite, an optimized database design and implementation environment. Based on the advanced I-CASE products Westmount develops and sells, Westmount Lite is a tool specifically targeted towards design and maintenance of database environments. Westmount Lite visualizes in detail the corporate data models. The flexible code generator implements this model in the latest Ingres Informix database technology. Through Reverse Engineering, existing databases can be read into the environment. The finishing touch is provided by the Docwriter, which automatically generates documentation of DTP-quality. This provides database developers with a professional way of discussing their designs with application developers, end users, management and so on.
 Users of Westmount Lite make a graphical design the extended Entity Relationship Diagram technique by Chen of the databases to be generated. Design information of existing databases can easily be incorporated through the Reverse Engineering capability. Referential integrity declarations can be included in the design. Once the graphical design is completed and consistent (automatic consistency checks), SQL code is generated from it, including referential integrities and stored procedures. The graphical design is database-independent, which means that from the same design, several relational databases can be generated. Westmount Lite has strong multi-user support and is equipped with an extensive version management system. The reports and documentation automatically generated with Westmount Lite are of DTP quality. The Docwriter workbench is integrated with FrameMaker and Interleaf. Westmount Lite is available for the Ingres and Informix relational databases and is based on Unix development environment. Apart from Unix, DOS and VMS can also be target environments, depending on the quality of the relational databases concerned. Because of the friendly user interface (OSF/Motif), developers will learn to work with the product very quickly. Westmount Lite has been developed in such a way, that a smooth migration towards a full Westmount I-CASE Yourdon environment is always a possibility.
 Westmount's main products are Westmount I-CASE Yourdon (for Information System Development) and Westmount I-CASE Ward/Mellor (for Technical Systems Development) formerly known as ISEE and TSEE, which are fully integrated CASE tools for analysis, design, implementation and maintenance.

Automatic documentation generation according to corporate standards, document management facilities and fully integrated version and configuration management are also featured in the toolset.
