Welcome to EVE - the Evolution & Validation Environment!
Reuse in software construction has been a core aspect of software
engineering since the term was coined in late 70's. Strategies for
reuse like high level languages, structuring and encapsulation have
made valuable contributions. Today, the software industry produces
components as reusable parts, which deliver advantages like faster
time-to-market, cost reduction, better maintainability, configurability
etc. While the reuse of code and components improves, one important
contributing factor of the engineering process remains out of scope:
Although design reuse is more effective and beneficial than code reuse
models of software systems still are not assets of the software process.
As a result design reuse does not impact the actual software engineering
is the point where EVE comes into play.
We hope EVE has the potential to globally reuse and
share know-how expressed in models and model services, independent
of and complementary to existing modeling tools.
