   Introduction 
PatternsBox is a tool to manage design motifs and to generate source code from a particular design motif. Hervé Albin-Amiot implemented PatternsBox during his master's thesis on design patterns formalisation.

PatternsBox
PatternsBox is now based on the PADL (Pattern and Abstract-level Description Language), a meta-model I devised for my Ph.D. thesis to describe programs and design motifs. The PADL meta-model is an extension of the meta-model originally developed by Hervé Albin-Amiot as part of his Ph.D. thesis, PDL (Pattern Description Language).
A design motif represents the structure and a subset of the behaviour of a solution of a design pattern. The reason to describe design motifs using a metamodel is to manipulate them as first-class entities within a program. It is then possible to identify these design motifs (re-documentation), to identify micro-architectures similar to design motifs (program understanding), and to apply automatically design motifs (program generation or help to development).
PatternsBox is the subject of publications.
