OctoUML: An environment for exploratory and collaborative software design
Paper in proceedings, 2017
Software architects seek efficient support for planning and designing models at multiple levels of abstraction and from different perspectives. For this it is desirable that software design tools support both informal and formal representation of design, and also support their combination and the transition between them. Furthermore, software design tools should be able to provide features for collaborative work on the design. OctoUML supports the creation of software models at various levels of formality, collaborative software design, and multi-modal interaction methods. By combining these features, OctoUML is a prototype of a new generation software design environment that aims to better support software architects in their actual software design and modelling processes.
