A

Annotation

Artifact: An artifact typically corresponds to a model element. Some examples are Entity, Session Facade, and Datatype artifacts. Usually each artifact is associated with a Java file to promote modularity as much as possible. There are two main categories of artifacts: Information Model Artifacts and Behavior Model Artifacts.

Project See Tigerstripe Project.

Project Descriptor: This is the metadata for a Tigerstripe model project (tigerstripe.xml). This file is used to store additional properties about the project. Such properties can include the project version, description, dependencies, and also properties that are used when generating code.

Tigerstripe Perspective

Tigerstripe Plugin Project: These are generator projects that specify the model generation details. A plugin project defines the rules by which artifacts are rendered in the output, in terms of format (eg HTML, XML, Java) filename, and detailed file content.

Tigerstripe Project: Contains the information model which can be used to generate code from. The corresponding metadata for a Tigerstripe project is stored in tigerstripe.xml file.

Tigerstripe Workbench: An Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for creating models and generating code from it.

Tigerstripe Explorer: A view responsible for displaying all the relevant contents of the Tigerstripe projects
