SCA Meta Model

Several meta models:

  • You can add your own meta model

Also: Auto-completion for attribute values

  • Promotes attributes, wires sources and targets...


  • Takes into account composite inclusions
  • Edition of componentType files
  • Preference page to define additional bindings, implementations and interfaces

SCA Tools 2.0.0 M4 (22 December 08)

SCA Tools 2.0.0 M6 (19 March 2009)

  • The JBI binding was updated.
  • The label on a service and a reference was removed.


  • The SCA builder now adds error markers in diagrams. It also validates all the Java parts (interafaces and implementations): check they are in the class path, that wires and promotes link compatible Java interfaces, that Java component implementations implement all the Java interfaces of the component services.


  • There have been small but convenient add-ons in the SCA Composite Designer:
    • Drag and drop java files from project and package explorers.
    • Diagram actions to add / set Java elements (interfaces or implementations) from the class path using a Java selection dialog.
