A software development method in which the design and implementation activities are performed concurrently so that they influence each other. The software architecture and program code are automatically kept mutually consistent using software. This process is based on a formal modeling language (such as UML), from which at least the basic body of the program is generated using automatic program code generation. The insights and improvements obtained by refining and testing this program code flow back into the modeling of the program via a reverse engineering process. It is possible to produce software based on ‘practical experience’ in a relatively short time, with source code that is consistent with the software architecture, by cycling through this code generation / reverse engineering loop several times. Round-trip engineering is almost exclusively used with object-oriented languages (e.g. C++ and Java) in combination with UML.
