XJ DOME is a set of tools and technologies for those who wish to speed up development of distributed COM applications and improve their quality and manageability. DOME supports several development phases (graphical modeling, code generation, simulation and deployment), as well as run-time (monitoring and management). DOME is tuned to work with MS Visual C++.
While distributed computing platforms such as CORBA and DCOM are now used industry-wise, there still are no corresponding high-level support tools. Most commonly used development environments (e.g. Microsoft Visual Studio) provide only low-level support for distributed programming leaving a lot of routine work to be done manually.
