EGit/Logical Model Support Improvements 2012

This page is a draft.

This work is developed by Tasktop Technologies and sponsored by Ericsson in the context of the Polarsys Industry Working Group


In the past Ericsson already sponsored work to implement support for logical models into EGit. The goal of this work is to enhance the existing implementation with additional features and usability improvements.

The word "model" in "logical model" has nothing to do with the EMF concept of model. Sometimes in this document, we'll talk about logical resources interchangeably. For more details about how logical model support has to be implemented relating to Team, you should read the document Team Support for Logical Model Integration.

For team providers like EGit, the following document is of high interest for implementation purposes: Repository Roadmap for Logical Model Integration

For model providers like EMF Compare, the following document is relevant: Model Roadmap for Logical Model Integration

EMF Compare will be used as one of the model providers to be tested as the team is currently working on support for Logical Models, see Logical Model support for EMF compare
