RTEO  Round Trip Engineering Objects

We all know about the benefits of XML... Every existing data is now represented as XML

Except... the most valuable data for a software architect : source code ...

What if all source codes had their representation in XML ?

Wouldn't refactoring be much easier ?

Wouldn't architecture re-engineering be simpler ?

Wouldn't software architecture's documentation be generated more easily ?

Wouldn't PIM (Platform Independant Model) be more extractible ? ...

Well that's why we're here : experiment this idea throught simple RTEO processes.

The aim is an XML representation of the simplest object oriented language possible :

XOL (XML Object Language)
