MetaCase’s MetaEdit Plus 4.5 isn’t based on UML. It’s a domain-specific modeling tool, said company CEO Juha-Pekka Tolvanen. MetaEdit Plus differs from UML offerings in that it models concepts “that are specific to a narrow area,” he said. For instance, instead of specifying an application in terms of classes, attributes and operations, as UML tools do, MetaEdit Plus specifies an application using concepts that are specific to that industry. “For the insurance industry, you could model an application in terms of damages, payment, risk and bonuses,” said Tolvanen, offering an example.
