We evaluated a large number of object-oriented CASE tools, concentrating on 14 that seemed particularly interesting. Our primary evaluation criterion was the degree of automatic code generation, but we also considered custom document generation, ease of use, consistency checking, and other factors. We found that, although many tools claim to do automatic code and document generation, very few actually do complete generation of code, and fewer still provide an easy method for automatic generation of design documentation. We present some details of our evaluation, explain why we did not select any CASE tool, and then make suggestions based on our experiences
