NDT-GLOSSARY - A MDE Approach for Glossary Generation

J. A. García-García, M. J. Escalona, C. R. Cutilla, M. Alba


This research paper is contextualized within the paradigm of Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) and it is specifically related to NDT. NDT is a methodology included within the MDE paradigm. The aim of this paper is to present a software tool to facilitate the work of requirements engineers during the requirements validation in a software project. The requirements validation activity takes place within the requirements phase of the life cycle in a software project. The developed tool is called NDT-Glossary and it implements an automatic procedure to generate, from the requirements defined in a project developed with the NDT methodology, the first example of the glossary of terms for this project.
