The objective of the 1st International Workshop on Advanced Software Development Tools and Techniques (WASDeTT-1) was to provide interested researchers with a forum to share their tool building experiences and to explore how tools can be built more effectively and efficiently. The theme for this workshop did focus on tools that target object-oriented languages and that are implemented with object-oriented languages.
This workshop report provides a brief overview of the presented tools and of the discussions that took place. The presented tools, 15 in total, covered a broad range of functionalities, among them: refactoring, modeling, behavioral specification, static and dynamic program checking, user interface composition, and program understanding.
