MoDisco provides an extensible framework to develop '''model-driven tools''' to support use-cases of '''existing software modernization'''.
  
The [http://www.eclipse.org/gmt/modisco/ MoDisco] ('''Model Discovery''') component is an Eclipse/[[GMT]] component which has been initiated by the [http://www.inria.fr/recherche/equipes/atlas.fr.html ATLAS Team], [http://www.inria.fr/ INRIA]. The aim of the GMT project is to produce a set of prototypes in the area of Model Driven Engineering (MDE). The MoDisco project acts in this way by providing a support for model-driven reverse engineering, i.e. principles, methodologies and tooling.

==Overview==

== Overview==
 +
Modernizing an existing software system implies : 
 +
*'''Describing''' the information extracted out of the artifacts of this system
 +
*'''Understanding''' the extracted information in order to take the good modernization decisions
 +
*'''Transforming''' this information to new artifacts facilitating the modernization (metrics, document, transformed code, ...)
  
The goal of [http://www.eclipse.org/gmt/modsico/ MoDisco] (Model Discovery) is to allow practical extractions of models from legacy systems. Because of the widely different nature and technological heterogeneity of legacy systems, there are several different ways to extract models from such systems. MoDisco proposes a generic and extensible metamodel-driven approach to model discovery. A basic framework and a set of guidelines are provided to the Eclipse contributors to bring their own solutions to discover models in various kinds of legacy.
 
  
Due to the highly diversified nature of the considered legacy, MoDisco is a collaborative component involving many organizations. Each of them will bring its own expertise in a given area. A common infrastructure, inspired by the OMG KDM recommendation, will allow integrating all these contributions.
+
To support these activities, MoDisco aims at providing :
 +
*'''Metamodels''' to describe existing systems
 +
*'''Discoverers''' to automatically create models of these systems
 +
*'''Generic tools''' to understand and transform complex models created out of existing systems
 +
*'''Use-cases''' illustrating how MoDisco can support modernization processes
  
As a GMT component, MoDisco will make good use of other GMT components or solutions available in the Eclipse Modeling Project (EMF, M2M, GMF, TMF, etc), and more generally of any plugin available in the Eclipse environment.
 
  
 +
To facilitate reuse of components between several modernization solutions, MoDisco is organized in '''three layers''':

 +
*'''Use-Cases''': tools providing a solution for a specific modernization use-case.
  
We provide here a set of definitions for the main different concepts which are related to model discovery and model-driven reverse engineering:
 
  
* '''Model discovery''': the general process composed of the two following steps:
+
** the retrieval of the information from an existing system
+
** the injection of this information into one or several models that conform to specific metamodel(s).
+
  
* '''Discoverer''': an implementation (i.e. a program, a ''tool'', etc) that has been designed for performing a model discovery process.
+
*'''Technologies''': components dedicated to one legacy technology but independent from any specific modernization use case.
  
  
==Available Resources==
+
  
The Eclipse/GMT MoDisco component currently provides a [http://www.eclipse.org/gmt/modisco/roadmap.php roadmap] for the development of the component, and also an initial set of metamodel-driven reverse engineering [http://www.eclipse.org/gmt/modisco/useCases.php use cases].   
+
*'''Infrastructure''': generic components independent from any legacy technology.

MoDisco provides an extensible framework to develop model-driven tools to support use-cases of existing software modernization.


Overview

Modernizing an existing software system implies :

  • Describing the information extracted out of the artifacts of this system
  • Understanding the extracted information in order to take the good modernization decisions
  • Transforming this information to new artifacts facilitating the modernization (metrics, document, transformed code, ...)


To support these activities, MoDisco aims at providing :

  • Metamodels to describe existing systems
  • Discoverers to automatically create models of these systems
  • Generic tools to understand and transform complex models created out of existing systems
  • Use-cases illustrating how MoDisco can support modernization processes


To facilitate reuse of components between several modernization solutions, MoDisco is organized in three layers:

Modisco-Architecture.PNG
  • Use-Cases: tools providing a solution for a specific modernization use-case.



  • Technologies: components dedicated to one legacy technology but independent from any specific modernization use case.



  • Infrastructure: generic components independent from any legacy technology.

Relationship with other Eclipse Projects

MoDisco reuses lots of EMP projects:

  • EMF to describe and manipulate models of existing systems.
  • M2M to implement transformation of models into other models
  • M2T to implement generation of text (documentation or code)


MoDisco also reuses other projects such as:

  • JDT to create models out of Java source code


Team

MoDisco was started by the AtlanMod Team (Inria, Mines de Nantes & LINA), and then strongly supported by Mia-Software:

  • Hugo Bruneliere - AtlanMod (project co-leader)
  • Fabien Giquel - Mia-Software (project co-leader)
  • Grégoire Dupé - Mia-Software (committer)
  • Nicolas Bros - Mia-Software (committer)
  • Gabriel Barbier - Thales (committer)
  • Frédéric Madiot - Obeo (committer)

MoDisco was rescued from termination by:

  • Edward Willink - Willink Transformations Ltd.
