Code generation tools
Data modeling tools
UML
Refactoring tools
QVT or Model transformation Tools
Configuration management tools including revision control

CASE tools are software tools to help in the application of CASE methods to a software project.

The FourGen CASE Tools were originally developed in 1983 by FourGen Software Technologies based in Seattle, and bundled with Informix-4GL as I-4GL Forms, I-4GL Menu's until 1996, are the cornerstone of MBD (Modifiability by Design) concept, and provide a Rapid Application Development environment for industrial strength applications on Informix-4GL technology that will run against Informix and DB2 databases.

The FourGen CASE Tools suite contains a Form Painter, Screen Code Generator, Report Code Generator, Featurizer - for adding custom business logic, Menu System, and a front-end GUI (graphical user interface) Generator.

These tools are available today on major flavors of UNIX and Red Hat Linux and SUSE Linux operating systems.

FOURGEN business was later acquired in 2002, by Syed Kamal of Gillani, Inc.
