Work is being done on a tool for relational database design and for data
design for object-oriented database systems. However, only a little thought
and no work has been done on behavior design for object-oriented systems.
Transformations might include putting state nets in a canonical form so
that they can be automatically translated into methods or maximizing
or minimizing concurrency.
