Netfective Technology SA is an IT Consulting & Services company focusing on Application Generation. The Company's primary expertise is the design and production of applications in package mode using Microsoft.NET and J2EE technologies. The offered solution is BLU AGE, an application generator which conforms to UML 2, OCL 2 and MDA (PIMs/PSMs). BLU AGE is a true alternative to offshore development: 100% of the expected code is generated from the built UML models and the prototyping of GUIs. The provided training services are: UML 2, OCL 2, MDA and the BLU AGE Enterprise Model-Driven Development Method.

Class Listings:

1 Object-Oriented Technology

Duration: 1 day

Objectives: this 1-day course aims at revising and consolidating all of the concepts (encapsulation, inheritance…) and precepts (reusability, maintainability, design by contracts…) of object-oriented programming but also object-oriented analysis and design (modeling)
Required skills: some basic knowledge about object-oriented programming
Tools used: an open source IDE (e.g., NetBeans) is used by the trainer only, for illustration purposes
Provided material: copy of slides, studied source code available on the Web

2 UML 2.x, OCL 2.x and Model-Driven Development

Duration: 3 days (2 ½ days UML/OCL and ½ day MDD)

Objectives: this 3-day course is a complete presentation and learning of UML 2.x. It stresses the key differences with UML 1.x. A case study is exhaustively modeled and implemented (all models are provided). A special focus is put on precise modeling with the OCL and an introduction about the notions of Platform-Independent Model, Platform-Specific Model and model transformation (MDD)
Required skills: Object-Oriented Technology module
Tools used: free or demo. version of a UML CASE tool (e.g., MagicDraw™), open source IDE and J2EE server
Provided material: copy of slides including the full case study (requirements expressed in natural language), availability of the case study’s J2EE implementation on the Web (source code, IDE project, database script), case study’s models in XMI format

3 Blu Age™ Model-Driven Development Method

Duration: 1 day

Objectives: this 1-day course is an in-depth description of the Blu Age™ rigorous modeling framework. The precise process (key steps and mandatory dedicated models) associated with Blu Age™ is presented as well as a Blu Age™ UML profile which defines stereotypes and tagged values for annotating business models
Required skills: UML 2.x, OCL 2.x and Model-Driven Development module
Tools used: none
Provided material: copy of slides

4 Creating Applications with Blu Age™

Duration: 3 days (1-day domain modeling plus 1 use case design and full implementation, 1-day incremental modeling: addition of CRUD-based use cases, 1-day complex functionality design and implementation)

Objectives: this 3-day course demonstrates how to construct a large-scale application (case study of the UML 2.x, OCL 2.x and Model-Driven Development module) based on a 100% code generation. This module also includes the design of Web-based GUIs, their Blu Age™-based parameterization and their seamless integration with the built models
Required skills: Blu Age™ Model-Driven Development Method module
Tools used: free or demo. version of a UML CASE tool (e.g., MagicDraw™), Blu Age™ application generator, open source IDE and J2EE server
Provided material: copy of slides, availability of the Blu Age™ UML™ models, source code and deployable files (J2EE) on the Web.
