You can find general information about the Virtual Developer Modeler by visiting its online documentation. The page you are looking at right now teaches you how a model’s elements affect the generated code. The generator Capability processes models that are made with the DSLs Basic, UI, Function, Persistence, Testing and Product. In the following sections only those modeling concepts are mentioned that are related to capability modeling. All other modeling concepts are documented in other parts of the generator documentation.

Modeling Concepts specific to Capabilities
