April 14, 2008 - Telelogic, An IBM Company, announced enhancements to its Model Driven Development (MDD) solution, Telelogic Rhapsody. The new features decrease time-to-market through the support of MDD best practices that do not disrupt current project workflow, and provide system engineers a way to leverage advanced visualization and prototyping capabilities to easily validate design correctness and effectively communicate intended design behavior.

Building on Telelogic´s "Code Respect" initiative, Rhapsody now allows C developers to leverage the benefits of MDD while preserving the code structure, functionality and order. Rhapsody further offers the ability to reverse-engineer existing code and then forward-generate identical code. This allows software developers to use the right tools for the job and work at either the code or model level.

With Rhapsody´s Eclipse Plug-in, software developers can streamline their workflow and increase efficiencies by taking advantage of Eclipse´s powerful code editing capabilities and gain the benefits of working with an MDD solution all within the same development environment. Using Rhapsody´s reverse engineering and code synchronization capabilities, Rhapsody´s Eclipse Plug-in allows developers to work on the code or model within one complete development environment. Working in this manner, the code and model remain in synch and it is easy to navigate from one to the other. Developers can leverage debugging at the code or model level using the Eclipse debugger and Rhapsody´s animation with the ability to synchronize breakpoints between them.
