Thanks for the comments and interest. I agree that a general tool like
this would be extremely useful!

Regarding the TYPO3-5-devs - sure. This is the only V5 mailing list so
where else can I advertise this?


> Here are just some thoughts:
> Actually I use argoUML [1] for the design of an T3-Extension, DBDesigner
> [2] for the SQL-work and at least Eclipse [3] for the general coding,
> phpDocumentor [4] for the api-documentation and phpUnit [5] for
> unit-testing.
> Actually I use argoEclipse [6], because of its integration in Eclipse.
> A possibility to reduce the amount of different software, or to

> The last thing I want to mention ist, that such a "all-in-one device
> suitable for every purpose" (german: eierlegende wollmilchsau), which
> integrates e.g uml-modelling, php-code-generation, testcase-generation,
> api-generation and perhaps SQL-generation would not only help TYPO3, but
> also a lot of other people in the php-world.
> I would appriciate to assist in this development.
