Rhapsody for C++

http://www-01.ibm.com/software/awdtools/rhapsody/
I've read a little,  but is this a member of new generation softwares for programming/developement purposes including ide?
Is it better that msvisual c++ .net? or better than c++builder?

New, relatively speaking compared to C++, yes. But it's been around for over a decade. I used it for design (OOD), as well as automatically generating code (OOP). You can build directly from it (provided that you have hooks into one or more compilers), and your code can be in a configuration management system (e.g., ClearCase).

You can build an OO model (and it will analyze it for correctness - lots of different errors related to unresolved references).

You can draw sequence diagram scenarios and then run a simluation to verify that the actual sequence diagram matches the designed sequence diagram.

The code generated by state diagrams is non-intuitive, and takes a bit of time to get used to.

The learning curve, in general, for understanding the mapping between {state diagrams, Object Model Diagrams, Activity Diagrams} and {actual code generated} is non-trivial. Ultimately, you are debugging generated code, not OO diagrams, so you will need to learn the mapping.

The learning curve, in general, for large projects requiring multiple build configurations (for different platforms and/or simulators) is non-trivial. It can take months to get it right.

Is it better? Most people who start using it groan (and wish it were not a requirement). These are people who are used to writing lots of code per day and don't like the learning curve.

IBM bought Teleologic Rhapsody

IBM bought Rational Rose (a major competitor of Rhapsody). So, IBM is trying (or has) cornered the market on OO technology.

There are free OO tools that allegedly generate code. I will try to use them when I get some time.
