Papyrus Workshops

The Papyrus ecosystem will take the opportunity of the Unconference to join and meet the whole day.

Workshop on getting started with Papyrus

By Sebastien Gérard (CEA LIST) and Charles Rivet (Zeligsoft)

This hands-on workshop will teach the participants how to download and install Papyrus and how to create develop the model of a software system.

One of the traditional barrier to adoption of model-based engineering tools is the apparent complexity of the language (UML, SysML) and of the tools. This hands-on workshop will use Papyrus to break down these barriers by leading the participants through the creation and development of a model for a simple system application. The participants will learn how modelling can help show requirements and their traceable realizations into structural and behaviours models that fully describe the system to be built. They will also learn how to use basic customization capabilities to make the modelling environment better aligned with their personal preferences, company directive, and domain model.

Format: Short presentations of the model building steps followed by proctored execution of specific exercises by the participants.

Target audience: People interested in learning Papyrus and model development

Workshop requirements: Participants are expected to provide their own computer. Electrical power availability at each desk/table. Network with internet capability would be advantageous so the participants can download the tool from the Eclipse web site.

Workshop on Advanced definition and design of DSML within a Papyrus

By Sébastien Gérard and a part of the Papyrus team

In the context of MDE, UML is actually the most-widespread modeling language in the world being applied in most engineering domains and for various concerns. It is in the one hand widely educated & disseminated (e.g., via academics courses, tutorials, books, professional trainings and mentors), and in the other hand there is a large offer, either commercial or open-source, in terms of tooling. However, even if standards are key to MDE success, being also able to support dedicated features for specific concerns and domain is for sure also mandatory for being able to benefit 100% of modeling advantages. For that purpose, UML proposes the profile concept that enables to define specific language (e.g., SysML and MARTE). Papyrus, the UML tool of the Eclipse Foundation, does support the UML profile, but also provide very advanced customization mechanisms that enable to fully implement DSML, but without losing the benefit to be based on a standard, UML in our case. The purpose of this tutorial will be to give its participants all the information needed to implement very advanced modeling support for DSML while continuing to be based on a standard.

Workshop on Papyrus for Education

By Sebastien Gérard (CEA LIST) and Jean-Michel Bruel (U. Toulouse/IRIT)

This workshop will be an interactive working session with a first presentation about the goals of a recently launched initiative by CEA LIST around the use of Papyrus as a tool to teach UML/SysML at beginers' level.

The second part of the presentation will be around the existing tuning and adaptation mecanisms already present in Papyrus and that will be usefull for the purpose (CSS styles, model explorer definition, etc.) as well as some presentation of the possible tutorial and support ecosystem that could be build around Papyrus.

The third part will be a more interactive session with discusisons with the audience about what they would expect to find in an academic version of Papyrus.

Format: Half presentation, half brainstorming session.

Target audience: People interested in teaching with Papyrus or convinced that a "beginner" version of Papyrus is required.

Safety Classification and Qualification of Eclipse Based Tools

The safety of tools is determined by the impact the tools, especially potential tool errors can have to the safety of the product. Therefore tools need to be analyzed for their impact. The result is a classification of the tools. If tools might have impact to the safety they can be qualified. In this workshop we introduce the topic and give some concrete examples. You will learn how to qualify tools and how to avoid it. Furthermore we will present the way how this can be done for Eclipse-based tools that require qualification. After the workshop we will have a "get-together" with some drinks and small talks.

The agenda is the following

  • Introduction to saftey, standards, risk analysis and tool analysis
  • Presentation of a safety Critical Tool, developed with Eclipse and it's qualification using the free tools Jubula and JaCoCo.
  • Presentation of a safety critical tracing tool and it's qualification requirements
  • Discussion
  • get together

The presented approach satisfies the safety standards of the main embedded software domains: Automotive (ISO 26262) railway (EN 50128), Avionic (DO-178/DO-330: TQL4,5) and the general safety standard IEC 61508. Furhter standards can also be discussed.

Requirements Engineering Workshop

Notes from the Session: Eclipse_WG_Unconference_France_2014_Requirements

Requirement engineering is a key topic for any development. But for the development of Embedded Systems, for both Aerospace and Automotive, it has particular importance, mainly due to its relevance with respect to safety. But RE is not an isolated discipline, its value is amplified by it's integration in the overall systems development process. Therefore, the objective of this workshop is threefold:

1. What Eclipse projects exist that either (a) deal with requirements directly, (b) interface with requirements, or (c) should interface with requirements, but don't? What's the maturity of these projects? What's the maturity of these projects? Industry Success stories are welcome here!

2. What do you do with requirements? In order to get a better understanding of the needs of industry, we must understand what you do with requirements. Do you use them for Validation? As appendices for contracts? How do you work today? Again, we want to hear from practitioners.

3. What is missing? The previous two discussions should provide the foundation to answer this question: What would you like to be able to do with Eclipse that you cannot do today?

The goals of this workshop will be to discuss the status of existing projects, to envision closer collaboration, and to try to define a common medium term roadmap between the participants.

Timing Constraints

Realistically, RE is a niche topic. While we could easily fill more time, we can achieve a lot in 90 minutes.
