Software and Research Groups
in the field of Object-Oriented Modelling

Below, a list of object-oriented modelling software products is collected together with links to the corresponding Web-pages of the products to get more information on them. The second column refers to the research groups developing the software products. The "features" column should give a short hint in which area the software tools are applied. This is, of course, a subjective description. To get more "objective" information follow the corresponding link to the software tool.
