Today AgileJ, the developer of agile software assistive technologies, announced the launch of “AgileJ StructureViews”, a class diagram generator unapologetically dedicated to Java, Eclipse and agile methods:

Java, because it matters to Java programmers that language-specific constructs can be visualized;

Eclipse, because Eclipse has a wealth of project information which can be tapped into; and

Agile, because agile methodologies demand a tool which gives programmers a grasp of code structure, but then gets out of the way quickly to let coding continue.

This is the market gap which AgileJ StructureViews is attempting to plug.

Founder and Chief Executive Officer of AgileJ Limited Mr Paul Wells said:

“Our top priority is to satisfy the needs of ordinary programmers who need a better overview of what they are working on. There’s no space on an agile project for a modeling tool that wants to run the show, so our product provides insight where it is needed, but then steps away as coding resumes. People like code – code is going to be around for a long time. But sometimes it is helpful to get another angle – a graphical view, and that’s basically what we provide. The code has to be the master copy of the model at all times, it's the only version you can trust. AgileJ StructureViews is the only modelling tool to award the code this status."

AgileJ StructureViews has already won recognition from many industry professionals. Dan Haywood of Haywood Associates Limited is an enthusiastic supporter of the product. Dan said:

"I've been using AgileJ StructureViews to illustrate a book I'm writing on Naked Objects. I have to say it's been really useful to help me emphasise some of the key learning points with a minimum of effort."

Note to Editors:

Paul Wells started AgileJ Limited in 1999 in response to his perception of the lack of a programmer-centric modelling tool. Since then AgileJ has grown to include industry and project specific capabilities in response to market demand. Paul Wells is an acknowledged authority on Java, Eclipse and agile methods, having been asked to give presentations at British Computer Society conferences.
AgileJ StructureViews is available for evaluation and download at http://www.agilej.com.

Dan Haywood’s book is entitled Domain Driven Design Uncovered: a Practitioners Guide using Naked Objects and will be published mid 2008.
