The SCA Tools project has seen an enormous amount of new development since the 2008 Ganymede release. We've added an [[SCA/Components/SCA XML Editor|XML editor]] to make editing and updating SCA-standard assembly files really easy. For Java developers, it's now possibly to create an SCA assembly definition and then [[SCA/Components/SCA Composite to Java|generate Java code]] from it. And, if you want to start with some Java you already have, we've added a special introspector that will investigate your code and automatically produce an SCA assembly. Once you've created your Java SCA project, you can then [[SCA/Components/SCA Java Run and Debug|run and debug]] it using the great facilities that Eclipse provides. We also have made sure that the SCA artifacts you might create are [[SCA/Components/SCA Builder|properly validated]], helping you spot mistakes early in the process. We even took the time to update the graphics, giving us a prettier SCA Composite Designer.
 +
 
 +
One of the most exciting feature is how we've developed the core SCA model to be [[SCA/Components/SCA MMExtension|extensible]] by people who want to write in [[SCA/SCA Component/SCA CompositeDesignerExtension|extra capabilities into the tools]]. The heart of the model contains the SCA standard specifications, and different extensions have been created to support the key Open Source SCA runtimes - Apache Tuscany 1.4 and Frascati 0.5. Using the extension mechanisms, it is much more straightforward to [[SCA/Components/Ontology|add new concepts]] to SCA and extend the tools to include them.

Welcome to the wiki home of the SCA Tools project that provides a set of tools for the Service Component Architecture (SCA) set of standards. This page is an entry point to last information about the SCA Tools project.

SCA Composite Designer
SCA XML Editor

The SCA Tools project has seen an enormous amount of new development since the 2008 Ganymede release. We've added an XML editor to make editing and updating SCA-standard assembly files really easy. For Java developers, it's now possibly to create an SCA assembly definition and then generate Java code from it. And, if you want to start with some Java you already have, we've added a special introspector that will investigate your code and automatically produce an SCA assembly. Once you've created your Java SCA project, you can then run and debug it using the great facilities that Eclipse provides. We also have made sure that the SCA artifacts you might create are properly validated, helping you spot mistakes early in the process. We even took the time to update the graphics, giving us a prettier SCA Composite Designer.

One of the most exciting feature is how we've developed the core SCA model to be extensible by people who want to write in extra capabilities into the tools. The heart of the model contains the SCA standard specifications, and different extensions have been created to support the key Open Source SCA runtimes - Apache Tuscany 1.4 and Frascati 0.5. Using the extension mechanisms, it is much more straightforward to add new concepts to SCA and extend the tools to include them.
