We describe our experiences in developing the Banquet set of integrated software development tools, initially using C++, and then Java as the tool interfacing and implementation and(More)
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) systems are used in many domains to support inter-organisational information exchange. These systems require complex message translation, where data must be transformed from one EDI message format into another. We describe a visual language and support environment which greatly simplify the task of the systems integrator by(More)
