ViSta is a tool suite designed to support the requirements specification phase of reactive systems. It includes a template wizard, a graphical editor and a statechart visualization tool. The template wizard guides the user through the steps necessary for the extraction of relevant information from a textual description of requirements. This information is stored in a database that is used by the statechart visualization tool to automatically generate statechart layouts. The statechart visualization tool offers a framework that combines hierarchical drawing, labeling, and floorplanning techniques.
