State-of-the-art graphical and form-based documentation tools often make documentation a cumbersome task. In this talk we discuss how the new generation of textual modeling workbenches allows to build intuitive, company-specific architecture modeling tools that reduce modeling effort. You will learn how textual modeling simplifies automated documentation and how architecture analysis can be supported by interactive visualizations.
