STP/IM Component/IM Builder

< STP‎ | IM Component

When a SOA developer starts building different models for the SOA platform he's trying to build, whether it is from the business or components architecture points of view. In order to keep the integrity of the modeled concepts, the developer transforms all his models into a single modeling notation; STP-IM. However, this approach will generate several IM instances, perhaps with repeating concepts and risking the integrity of the concepts. In this way, it becomes necessary to have an unique, centralized instance of the Intermediate Model.

Also, there's also the requirement of making this whole process of having this unique instance updated at all times, reflecting changes in all models, but in a way that is transparent to user. The Eclipse platform offers the concept of builders, which allow to craft a build process and run it after certain events, such as clicking the build button or saving a file (if autobuild is on).
