This article discusses IBM® Constraint Patterns and Consistency Analysis, an extension to IBM® Rational® Software Architect. This tool facilitates pattern-based, consistency-preserving refinement of UML class models. It supports model developers in elicitation, concise specification, consistency analysis, and code generation of constraints in class models. In this way, you are able to simplify how you can create more precise models, leveraging OCL and constraints in a proven best practice and automated approach.
