MoDisco stands for Model Discovery.
It provides a generic and extensible MDE framework to support different reverse engineering scenarios such as modernization, quality assurance, retro-documentation, architecture improvement, etc.
Thus, the focus of MoDisco is on Model Driven Reverse Engineering.
It is an Eclipse Model Development Tools (MDT) project, inside the Eclipse Modeling Project (EMP).
New in this release
For the second time, MoDisco is part of an Eclipse Simultaneous Release. The different features provided by MoDisco v0.9.0, as part of Indigo, are of two categories.
- Item 1;
- Item 2;

The complete MoDisco documentation is available from the MoDisco Wiki page:
- General documentation on the various components;
- Version specific information;
- Additional information on available use cases, as well as incubation and deprecated components.
The Help plugins are automatically generated from the content of the Wiki.
The MoDisco website provides a direct access to all the related resources.
As this is the first time MoDisco is part of an Eclipse Simultaneous Release, there are no API related issues. TO BE CHECKED...
The MoDisco architecture is detailed from http://wiki.eclipse.org/MoDisco/Architecture.
Testing & Packaging
MoDisco uses the Modeling Project Releng system to build and promote versions.
Each new build is tested at least with Eclipse 3.7 (Indigo).
Core plugins are provided with dedicated test plugins checking their valid behavior.
MoDisco is integrated into the Indigo Release Train since the beginning.
It is also part of the Amalgamation Modeling Package for Indigo.
MoDisco is used for building Model Driven Reverse Engineering solutions to different scenarios such as:
- Legacy Modernization
- Quality Assurance
- Architecture Improvement
No components from the MoDisco previous release builds (0.8.0) have been deprecated. TO BE UPDATED...
- Bugzilla (v0.9.0 only, snapshot taken on the 20th of May 2011):
The MoDisco project is working in close collaboration with the OMG Architecture Driven Modernization (ADM) Task Force, which results in the EMF implementation of the Abstract Syntax Tree Metamodel (ASTM), Knowledge Discovery Metamodel (KDM) and Software Metrics Metamodel (SMM) specifications.
MDT MoDisco is conforming to the user interface guidelines.
MDT MoDisco is a "+3" project in the simultaneous release

Gregoire Dupe (Mia-Software) replaced Frederic Madiot as co-leader of the project. Frederic Madiot has moved from Mia-Software to Obeo. Gabriel Barbier has moved from Mia-Software to Thales.
The Eclipse IP Process has been strictly followed and all plugins contain the appropriate about.html and license files.
The MoDisco IP Log is available from http://www.eclipse.org/projects/ip_log.php?projectid=modeling.mdt.modisco
- Some third-party libraries are used (cf. corresponding validated CQs)
All MoDisco content is released under EPL.
The current project plan is available from http://www.eclipse.org/projects/project-plan.php?projectid=modeling.mdt.modisco.
Next MoDisco version (v1.0.0) is planned to include:
- Item 1;
- Item 2;
- Item 3.
