Dev room

Ask for your space in the dev room! One day before the EclipseCon France, get a room to work on your Eclipse project. The purpose is to assign a dev room to self-organizing groups to work together on open source projects, to discuss topics relevant to a broader subset of the community, and to hack code...

List your project here if you plan to be there and want to attend gather your folks in the dev room:

Designing a CPS with Papyrus

  • Session type: Presentation / Live demo / Hands-on
  • Contact:,
  • Time: 45 minutes
  • Title: Using MDE to Design a Complex Cyber-Physical System: An Experiment with Papyrus
  • Description:

In recent years, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) have been the focus of many research projects. A CPS integrates computation with physical processes. Such systems are usually composed of embedded and networked computers that control physical components, who interact with the real environment in real-time. A Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) is a typical CPS. Such vehicles may operate in harsh environments (such as Mars or Venus) where repair and assistance are not available after deployment. Therefore, it is crucial that the design and development of such systems meet hard constraints.

Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) is a development approach that proposes software and system design methods that help engineers build reliable complex systems. Several works have already applied MDE for the design of embedded systems. We propose an experiment to evaluate the MDE approach for the design of a CPS.

In this session a real ROV will be presented. In our work, we use Papyrus to design the ROV. Papyrus is a UML modeler with an eco-system of tools that typically support and promote MDE. In a live demo, we will show how the system is modeled with Papyrus and how Papyrus can interact directly with the physical system. This session also introduces fundamental concepts for the Moka session, on the simulation and analysis CPS.

Moka: Execute your Papyrus models

  • Session type: Presentation (relies on the content presented during Designing a CPS with Papyrus)
  • Contact:,
  • Time constraints: 45 minutes
  • Title: Moka: The Papyrus Framework for Model Execution based on Standards
  • Description:

Moka is a Papyrus module for execution of UML models, which natively includes an execution engine complying with Executable UML OMG standards – foundational UML (fUML, [1]) and Precise Semantics of UML Composite Structures (PSCS, [2]). Moka is integrated with the Eclipse debug framework to provide control (suspend / resume / step, etc.), observation (breakpoints, variables) and diagram animation during executions. Moka can be easily extended to support alternative execution semantics, and thereby be adapted to multiple usage scenarios and domains.

The use case concerns a small Lego Mindstorm © robot which is dedicated to space exploration. The system is mainly composed of a four wheels rover and a remote controller. The controller sends commands to the rover's actuators based on information captured by the rover's sensors. In this session, we will complete the Papyrus model of the rover built during the session "Designing a CPS with Papyrus". We will specify the behavior of the control part of the robot. The model will be simulated with Moka, in order to check that the modeled system performs the expected behavior. Once validated with simulation, the same model will be used to control the real system.

ModelWriter: Text & Model-Synchronized Document Engineering Platform

Session type:

  • Monday: Public meeting
  • Tuesday: Private meeting


  • Ferhat Erata, ModelWriter Project Leader <>
  • Moharram Challenger <>
  • Etienne Juliot <>

Time constraints:

  • Monday 14:00 - 17:00 (Public)
  • Tuesday 10:00 - 17:30 (Private)

Project Description: The objective of the ModelWriter project is to bring a quantum leap in the productivity of technical authors (such as software or systems engineers, project managers, business developers, etc.) who are engaged in authoring documents of a technical nature. The project also aims to improve the quality (consistency, completeness) of these documents that, in turn, will enhance the quality of companies’ products, e.g. via a reduction of cost of product defects. Finally, ModelWriter aims also to allow companies to further exploit, recycle and valorise their own internal knowledge, which is currently left unexploited in technical documents that are seen as a sequence of words only. To achieve this, the project envisions an integrated authoring environment called "ModelWriter", which will be locally used by each author / contributor. This will combine two parts, a semantic word processor (= the "Writer" part), which resembles a typical word processor but capable of "understanding" pieces of text and transparently creating models of contents out of them, and a Knowledge Capture Tool (= the "Model" part), which resembles a spreadsheet table, or other familiar information modelling tools.
