Papyrus and Modeling Technologies Developer Summit at EclipseCon Europe 2014

Join us for a full day Developer Summit and Dinner at EclipseCon Europe 2014 in Ludwigsburg, Germany.
It will be held Tuesday October 28, 2014 and is open to all committers, contributors and interested parties that are registered for EclipseCon. Register here.

Developer summits are helping to accelerate the work inside specific Eclipse projects, it is the place to be for design discussions, addressing scalability, resolving complex technical issues, etc. in other words, real developer work! The list of focused projects for this year are:

Agenda

9:30

  • Welcome and agenda adjustment


9:45-12:00

  • A newcomer's perspective on the Papyrus Project (Christian Damus)
    • First impressions and expectations, in the technology and the development activity
    • Observations of change over the past two releases
    • Brief discussion of current technical and procedural issues
  • GMF Tooling diagram generation in Papyrus (TBD)
    • Roadmap for the GMF project
    • Papyrus requirements for diagram code generation, esp. in extensibility
    • Discussion: what needs to be improved in the Papyrus/GMF collaboration and how?
  • Panel: Model validation and OCL (Francis Bordeleau, moderator)
    • List of panelists to be announced
    • Open discussion of the nature and solutions for current issues in model validation, e.g.
      • Overlap of validation capabilities amongst projects (e.g., EMF, Papyrus, Sirius, Sphinx, ECP)
      • Architectural concerns: which projects should be responsible for what? Where to host commonly useful capabilities?
      • OCL evolution: bringing projects up to speed with the Pivot environment
      • Liveliness of validation-related projects: how to maintain Eclipse's wealth of assets with scant resources?


12:00-13:00

  • Lunch provided by EclipseCon


13:00-18:00

  • Collaboration on EMF-based models: state of the art in Eclipse (Philip Langer, Maximilian Kögel)
    • What are the most important use cases and how are they currently supported?
    • What are the most urgent problems with the current state and what is missing?
    • How could we address these problems and which technologies do we need to integrate with each other?
  • EGit for model based collaboration (Mikael Barbero).
    • Why "logical model" support is so important?
    • What are the needs of the modeling community regarding EGit?
    • Issues around command line merge / mergetool with logical model support ?
  • EMF Compare (Mikael Barbero).
    • How did we addressed the computation of the scope of a comparison? What are the limitations? What are the possible directions to provide generic model index support to the workspace?
    • Usability. Current state (merge consequences highlighting, merge preview, UI responsiveness). Discussion about conflict resolving strategies, feedback to the user etc.
    • Extensibility.
  • Gerrit for model change reviews (Edwin Kempin)
    • How can Gerrit help with reviewing model changes?
    • What is the current state in terms of reviewing model changes with Gerrit?
    • Where can we improve? What are current difficulties?
    • What are the plans from a Gerrit project perspective?
  • Gerrit Eclipse Connector for model change reviews (Francis Bordeleau, moderator)
    • How can the Eclipse Gerrit Connector help with reviewing model changes?
    • What is the current state in terms of reviewing model changes with Eclipse and its Gerrit connector?
    • Where can we improve? What are current difficulties?
  • Panel: Collaborating on models and reviewing model changes
    • Where are the main challenges from an end user perspective?
    • What are the main technical challenges and how can we solve them?
    • How can the EGit, EMFCompare, Eclipse Gerrit Connector help solving the challenges?
    • How will the projects interact to do so?
  • Tool integration an team collaboration with ModelBus
    • Synchronising parallel work on models with EGit
    • Integrated dependency management
    • Migration of models between Papyrus and other tools
    • Traceability across tool boundaries


19:00

  • Summit dinner free of charge for 35 people at a restaurant 10 min walk from the conference center.
    • Great food, beer, wine and good company!

(Ralph to provide the restaurant name/direction)

Shelved
Items to be reinstated if/when we find a willing speaker and time in the schedule permits.

  • Practical DSL development with UML (TBD)
    • Real-world experience of using UML and other Eclipse modelling technologies to build DSLs
    • How can this experience help to inform the Papyrus roadmap?
    • Discussion
