- Werner Keil, Creative Arts & Technologies, "Spatio-Temporal Epidemiological Modeler"
- The Spatio-Temporal Epidemiological Modeler (STEM) is an Eclipse based RCP for modeling the global spread of infectious disease. STEM started in the Eclipse Open Healthcare Framework and was recently promoted as a top level Eclipse Technology project (http://www.eclipse.org/stem/) designed to allow global collaboration on the development of infectious disease models.
- It embodies a flexible "graph based" representational framework that allows models to be composed from different components provided by different researchers. It also includes extensive data sets that represent the entire political geography of the planet (244 countries) as well as sophisticated mathematical models for predicting disease propagation. STEM also integrates internal views for geographic visualization and as well as offering interfaces to Google Earth. Scenarios can be created using drag-and-drop editors and can include Models that incorporate different layers of abstraction, for instance it can layer economic models "over top" of disease models.
- Public policy interventions can be modeled in STEM through the use of a conditional "trigger" mechanism that tests for conditions in a simulation and then changes some aspect of the Simulation's state as a result (e.g., closing borders, schools, public buildings,...). STEM is a very general system and is designed and implemented to allow for other types of simulation scenarios including disaster planning and recovery, military planing and infrastructure deployment.
- An interesting aspect of STEM is that it can run "simulations" in real-time (also in a grid or cloud environment where required) and integrate them with data from external sources to create systems that provide situational awareness. This talk will introduce STEM, demonstrate its application to pandemic disease modeling and discuss its implementation and applicability to other domains.
- Lixto Team, Lixto Software GmbH, "Eclipse-related aspects in Lixto Visual Developer"
- Lixto Visual Developer (VD) is an integrated development environment specifically geared towards the visual development of Web data extraction programs, supporting complex navigation and extraction tasks on highly dynamic Web applications. It is built on top of the Eclipse IDE framework and embeds the Mozilla browser engine. In this talk, we give a brief overview of several Eclipse-related aspects in Visual Developer: This comprises Browser Integration using ATF, GUI creation with JFace/SWT, EMF for storing and managing our data models, ZEST for visualization of web navigation workflows, and our building framework to create a light-weight IDE. Moreover, we illustrate use of features for plugin composition and perspective customization allowing us to easily generate our second application, the Lixto Web Application Testing Solution, which is based on VD. In a "ten minutes of fame" quick tour, we will demonstrate these aspects of the Visual Developer and are eager to discuss further details in the reception after the talks.

- Maximilian Weißböck - "Speed up your development with Eclipse and Xtext"
How to pragmatically and efficiently build and use DSL's in your project
- Why do we need DSL's?
- Benefits of using Xtext for your DSL
- Demo: Real World Example DSL for Hibernate & Tapestry 5
- Best practices to get you up and running in your project with Xtext
- Karl Hönninger, s-IT Solutions GmbH, "openXMA DSL" openXMA – Integrated presentation layer modelling
- RIA with HOPP – Pattern
- Eclipse tool chain based on EMF/Xtext
- Combined textual and graphical presentation layer modelling
- Integrated with domain modelling
- Florian Pirchner, "Riena-EMF-Dynamic-Views (redview)"
- What is redview?
- Short live demo
- Basic architecture
- Redviews WYSIWYG editor
- Live demo with CDO integration. Redviews are stored in a repository in munich. Changes at the model are pushed to all connected clients realtime.
- Philip Langer, Business Informatics Group, TU Wien, "The Operation Recorder: Specifying "Model Refactorings By Demonstration"
- Predefined composite operations are handy for efficient software modeling, e.g., for the automatic execution of refactorings, and for the introduction of patterns in existing models. Some modeling environments provide an initial set of basic refactoring operations, but hardly offer any extension points for the user. Even if extension points exist, the introduction of new composite operations requires programming skills and deep knowledge of the respective metamodel.
- In our demonstration we present the OperationRecorder, a tool for specifying composite operations, like refactorings, within the user's modeling language and environment of choice. The user models the composite operation by-example, which enables the semi-automatic derivation of a generic composite operation specification. This specification may be used in further modeling scenarios, like model refactoring and model versioning. We demonstrate our tool by creating two refactoring specifications for UML class diagrams and UML state machine diagrams.
- After outlining the approach from a theoretical point of view we will demonstrate the easy and efficient usage of our tool by creating two refactoring specification in the domain of the UML class diagram as well as the UML state machine diagram. For educational reasons we start with a small example, the Convert to Singleton refactoring, where a plain UML class is transformed to act as singleton. To get a complete impression of the expressive power we continue with a more complicated example, Introduce Composite State in UML state machine diagrams, for which the definition of user input as well as iterations are necessary.
