This page provides the required docuware for the MoDisco v0.9.0 Release Review, as part of the upcoming Indigo Simultaneous Release.


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).

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.

Tool Usability

MoDisco is used for building Model Driven Reverse Engineering solutions to different scenarios such as:

  • Legacy Modernization
  • Quality Assurance
  • Retro-documentation
  • Architecture Improvement
  • Etc


No components from the MoDisco previous release builds (0.8.0) have been deprecated. TO BE UPDATED...

SNAPSHOT TO BE UPDATED... MoDisco HeliosReview BugReport.PNG


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.

UI Usability

MDT MoDisco is conforming to the user interface guidelines.


MDT MoDisco is a "+3" project in the simultaneous release
