Martijn Iseger writes "MetaCase has released a Linux version of its customizable modeling and code generation environment MetaEdit+, aimed at the expert developer looking to gain productivity by generating full code directly from models. MetaEdit+ 4.0 now runs on all major Linux distributions, such as RedHat 6.0 or later.
MetaEdit+ environment includes Method Workbench that an experienced developer uses to define a modeling language as a metamodel and a code generator to turn the models into code. Method Workbench guides the process and creates automatically the development tools for the development team, who can then focus on making high-level design specifications using the domain-specific modeling language, resulting in full generation of code directly from design models.
The Linux release further extends platform support of MetaEdit+ in addition to Windows XP/ 2000/NT/98, HP-UX, and Solaris.
Evaluation version for defining modeling languages and code generators is available at http://www.metacase.com/.
