TMF meets GMF - Combining Graphical and Textual Modeling

in ECE, ECE2011, Video, Eclipse
Eclipse

Both, graphical as well as textual modeling, indisputably have their respective advantages (and disadvantages). And while a few evangelists might praise the superiority of one formalism over the other, the combination of both into a single integrated modeling tool seems to be the holy grail most modelers are indeed searching for.

While with the GMF runtime, a mature framework to develop graphical modeling tools has already been around for quite a while (which is now complemented by Graphiti), Xtext has recently closed the gap with respect to textual modeling. As such, the longed for undertaking has in theory - at least to some extent - become feasible.

Within this talk I will sketch how the integration of fully featured Xtext cell editors with support for syntax highlighting, auto-completion, scoping, and validation into a GMF-based graphical editor (and its related property sheets) can be technically achieved.

Spraying - the natural way to create Graphiti

in ECE, ECE2011, Video, Eclipse
Eclipse

The Graphiti framework is a new approach to create highly sophisticated visual editors on top of the GEF framework. Creating editors with Graphiti is fairly simple, but yet repetitive, which makes it a candidate to be supported by the means of model-driven development.

Spray (http://code.google.com/a/eclipselabs.org/p/spray/) provides Xtext based tooling to describe Visual DSL Editors against the Graphiti runtime, and code generation (with Xtend2) to create the boilerplate code for realizing the implementation. Potentially the Spray DSL can be used to generate code for other frameworks as well.

This session will show the Spray tooling to create a Graphiti editor within minutes.

Requirements Modeling Framework: a Game-Changer

in ECE, ECE2011, EMF, Video, Eclipse
Eclipse

The Eclipse ecosystem provides a number of projects to support software development and systems engineering. However, in the open source community, one important aspect of the engineering process has been very much neglected until now - Requirements Management. The "Requirements Modeling Framework" (RMF) is a proposed open source project under the "Model Development Tools Project".

The goal of RMF is to provide the community with a solid implementation of the OMG ReqIF (Requirements Interchange Format) standard upon which various requirements management tools can be built as well as integrated. RMF plans to provide a means for data exchange between tools, an EMF based meta-model, infrastructure tooling and user interface.

The talk would provide first-hand information about the new project, its scope and current state. The session would also be chance to inform yourself about the importance of this standardization effort in requirements management domain.

The Making of the OPEES Industrial Working Group

in ECE, ECE2011, Video, Eclipse
Eclipse

Software consumers in domains like aerospace have to face different issues than the traditional software industry when creating Embedded Software:

  • The software embedded in a spatial mission needs to be supported for more than 40 years in response to the lifetime of the mission.
  • The software embedded in an aircraft flight command system must be "certified" according to aircraft safety standards, including the tooling used to produce this software.

Thus, during the whole life-cycle of the product, those Software consumers need maturity assessment and long lasting support for their tooling.

These concerns are also relevant in other safety regulated environments like railway or energy, and also for other domains with long life products like telco.

We will tell you the story of these users who decided to adopt Open Source more than five years ago to tackle these strategic issues with Topcased. And how they are extending their ecosystem with the creation of OPEES, an initiative for the Long Term Support of open source tooling for Embedded Software.

We will also go through the evolution of the Eclipse Foundation during this period of time, and how it introduced the notion of Long Term Support and Industrial Working Groups.

Good news is that these stories meet now with the creation of the OPEES IWG inside Eclipse.
