JWT EclipseSummit2009

Revision as of 04:05, 9 July 2009 by (Talk | contribs) (New in Galileo: A walk through JWT)

This page contains resources about planned presentations which might be submitted to Eclipse Summit Europe 2009. We tend to submit several (probably long) talks and let the program chair decide which one is most interesting to the audience. Typical topics are:

  • New in Galileo: A description about JWT - "walkthrough"
  • Aspect-oriented Modeling (the ideas of JWT, but also others)
  • View mechanism (maybe together with BPMN2?)

New in Galileo: A walk through JWT

  • Possible presenters: Christian Saad, Florian Lautenbacher, Marc Dutoo, Mickael Istria
  • Abstract: To_Discuss
  • Can reuse parts of the Eclipse Forum Europe and EclipseCon 2009 talk, depending on the other submissions might also introduce aspects shortly? Maybe simply take the abstract of Eclipse Forum Europe again?

Aspect-oriented Modeling

  • Possible presenters: Marc Dutoo, Florian Lautenbacher, Kenn Hussey, Achim Demelt (to discuss with the last two!)
  • Abstract: To_Discuss
  • From a discussion via email:

During our development in JWT and my research I had a look at papers of the different conferences and workshops about aspect-oriented modeling. Right now there are still a lot of different approaches and no consensus what exactly aspect-oriented modeling (AOM) means.

In my opinion a talk about AOM could start with describing the shortcomings of UML and EMF (e.g. why we don't simply use EMF annotations) before giving an overview about existing research approaches (others than ours!) in order to introduce the topic AOM and gather some definitions of this area. Then we could describe the aspect-oriented extension mechanism as part of JWT. Afterwards, we could show your approach in Orchideo and the differences in it compared to JWT, before we close with an outlook concerning the standardization approaches in SMOF.


Yes, I think the ideal agenda for such a talk might be to identify the problems that need to be solved and then propose/demonstrate some alternative approaches for solving them. In my mind, there are a number of ways that we can help models (not just metamodels!) become adaptable to different contexts and make them more consumable, including facet-based modeling (what we have been talking about), task-focused tooling (simplifying the language and/or tooling for different users/roles/contexts) and collaborative design (partititioning models into distributed segments).

Process models with different views
