MoDisco provides an extensible framework to develop model-driven tools to support use-cases of existing software modernization.



Modernizing an existing software system implies :

  • Describing the information extracted out of the artifacts of this system
  • Understanding the extracted information in order to take the good modernization decisions
  • Transforming this information to new artifacts facilitating the modernization (metrics, document, transformed code, ...)

To support these activities, MoDisco aims at providing :

  • Metamodels to describe existing systems
  • Discoverers to automatically create models of these systems
  • Generic tools to understand and transform complex models created out of existing systems
  • Use-cases illustrating how MoDisco can support modernization processes

To facilitate reuse of components between several modernization solutions, MoDisco is organized in three layers:

  • Use-Cases: tools providing a solution for a specific modernization use-case.

  • Technologies: components dedicated to one legacy technology but independent from any specific modernization use case.

  • Infrastructure: generic components independent from any legacy technology.

Getting involved

The MoDisco project is open to contributors!

What can you provide?

  • new modernization use-cases
  • extensions of MoDisco components
  • metamodels of legacy technologies
  • discoverers and model transformations

Relationship with other Eclipse Projects

MoDisco reuses lots of EMP projects:

  • EMF to describe and manipulate models of existing systems.
  • M2M to implement transformation of models into other models
  • M2T to implement generation of text (documentation or code)

MoDisco also reuses other projects such as:

  • JDT to create models out of Java source code


MoDisco has been initiated by the AtlanMod Team (INRIA & Ecole des Mines de Nantes), and is now strongly supported by Mia-Software:

  • Hugo Bruneliere - AtlanMod (project co-leader)
  • Grégoire Dupé - Mia-Software (project co-leader)
  • Fabien Giquel - Mia-Software (committer)
  • Nicolas Bros - Mia-Software (committer)
  • Gabriel Barbier - Thales (committer)
  • Frédéric Madiot - Obeo (committer)
