Agenda Items

End-User Companies
End-user companies to give a summary of what is missing in Eclipse open source modeling, e.g. feature, support, documentation, migration, training, etc., what is their current initiatives if applicable.

  • Dominique Toupin, Ericsson
  • Pierre Gaufillet, Airbus
  • Robert Blust, UBS AG
  • Benjamin Kamphausen BMW

Possible Synergies Between Eclipse Working Group
Modeling synergies between Automotive Working Group, OPEES (PolarSys) Working Group, Multicore

Implementer Companies
What is the view of implementer companies, their core expertise, what implementation can have a big impact on open source modeling next year, low hanging fruit, what is their current initiatives, etc.

  • Stephan Eberle, itemis update
  • Remi Schnekenburger, CEA LIST

End-User Companies Business Case Brainstorming
Review first version of Modeling slides for end user companies, identify additional benefits for end user companies in order to facilitate budget approval

  • Gaël Blondelle, Obeo, feedback from the OPEES group

Improvements areas interesting for end user companies

  • Scalable logical model merge
  • Ability to connect to different physical repository technologies, e.g. Git,
  • Advanced, flexible and efficient code generation. Should be simple and efficient to do M2M and M2T transforms.
  • Good implementation of UML standard. Most tools implement some part well but skip others. MagicDraw is good reference tool to compare against.
  • UAL/ALF implementation
  • Team development capabilities across distributed models and repositories
  • Model Simulation capabilities
  • Trace and Debug capabilities connected to code generation feature
  • Stable and clean user interface. We don't want to see a lot of Eclipse noise.
  • Ability to work with fragmented models
  • Good performance on large model repositories.
  • Ability to import from existing tools without information loss. A huge bonus with be to preserve all diagram information.
  • Traceability with requirements and text cases
