Subject: OOTher: OO DOC TOOL for MS-Win3.0/3.1 (Coad's OOA)

OOTher: OO Documentation Tool Release 1.04d

MS-Windows 3.0/3.1

Archive file:

(general format: where is release e.g.
104 for 1.04, is correction level: omitted for first
release 'a' for 1st correction, 'b' for 2nd correction, etc.)

Short description:
The tool is a complete documentation development pakage for
Peter Coads OOA method.

The main purpose for the tool, is to be used as a 'note pad'
for OO modelling. It is not only simple and easy to use, but even
enough powerful for productive work.

The tool is build around an easy to use graphic object editor and is
capable of documenting all objects, their attributes, services
and also associations between objects.
Models can be merged into larger models, allowing also merging
contributions to objects, e.g. new attributes.
A model may also reuse object definitions in other models.
The tool also documents processor and process structure.

In oposite to Coad's OOATool (tm) $50 demo version it has no
constraints in number of objects (OO Doc Tool has been successfully
run with 139 objects!) and it's $950 cheaper than Coad's commercial

The resulting file is ASCII with open & documented format,
i.e. it's easy to add own utilities for data extraction.

The tools distributed as zero-fee shareware for students and
as cheap shareware for others ($50/home user license, $150/5
licenses for others).

Complete user documentation is attached in form of a hypertext
windows-help file.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!
