The Design Pattern Toolkit is an Eclipse-enabled tool for generating applications based on customizable model-driven architecture patterns. This plug-in can speed up the development of common types of applications by the use of patterns that capture best (or current) practices for the design and implementation of those applications. Users apply patterns to information encoded in XML files to generate multiple Eclipse resources of multiple types that together make up an application. The toolkit has a component for pattern-based resource generation as well as a component that supports pattern development and distribution.
Version 1.4.0: Enhancements and fixes; new WSDL and SAX Parser patterns; pattern can be applied to any Eclipse resource; sample appdefs can be declared and deployed with pattern; new prototype "Exemplar Analysis" tool helps build controller/view templates and initial appdef file.
