Infrastructure

Model Browser

The new version provides :

  • A new look&feel
  • The possibility to dynamically customize how the model elements are displayed (label, color, icon, police, ...)
  • The support of the Facet extension mechanism (the virtual types, attributes and relations are visible within the browser).
  • The possibility to execute queries against model elements

Discovery Manager

Discovery Workflow

Query Manager (new)

This new component provides a facade to evaluate queries against a model independently from the query mechanism. Implementations are provided to call queries written in Java, EMFQuery, OCL and XPath.

Facet Manager (new)

This new component provides a mechanism to dynamically extend model elements by adding "virtual" attributes and relations computed by queries.

Technologies

Java Discoverer (new)

This new component provides a ECore definition of Java language, a discoverer to create corresponding EMF models from existing Java projects and a generator to regenerate source code from the EMF model. This component replaces J2SE5 and JavaAST components which are deprecated.

XML Discoverer (new)

This new component provides a ECore definition of XML files and a discoverer to create corresponding EMF models from existing XML files.
