Rhapsody is a UML 2.0 based Model-Driven Development solution that fully integrates and automates the systems and software engineering processes and tasks in order to achieve a fully deployable system to allow both functional oriented and object oriented design techniques to co-exist in one environment. It allows embedded software engineers to analyze, design, implement, and test UML-based applications graphically. Production-quality code is automatically generated as the design evolves and graphical animation allows design diagrams on the development host to be debugged before testing the software on the target. This capability enables reuse at the design level and compresses the overall development cycle. Rhapsody has an open architecture that enables interfacing to leading requirements traceability, configuration management, and testing tools.
