EcoreTools: user experience revamped thanks to Sirius 5.0

Every year the Eclipse M7 milestone act as a very strong deadline for the projects which are part of the release train: it’s then time for polishing and refining! When your company is responsible for a number of inter-dependent projects some of them core technologies like EMF Services , the GMF Runtime, others user facing tools like Acceleo , Sirius or EcoreTools , packaging and integration orient...

Back to the Future

Last week, Obeo sent me to San Jose, California to attend the 1st Eclipse Converge and Devoxx US which was really cool of them. It makes sense to co-locate those events as both involved Java developers and open source projects. I really believe that these communities have so many things to share that this week in California would be a great occasion to learn from each other. Eclipse Converge I sta...

Graphical Modeling from 2016 to 2017: Better, Faster, Stronger

At Obeo, we believe that modeling is the right way to help IT and industry engineers collaborate efficiently on the design of their smart products. Our innovative approach consists of building specific modeling tools that completely suit users’ business domains. Modeling is a means to an end: by using modeling technologies we make sure that such a tool can be defined faster, as well as deployed an...

Sadness

That’s too sad!  EclipseCon Europe  finished yesterday. It was again a great conference, with inspiring talks and excellent discussions with different members of the Eclipse community. These moments with our community are motivating us to prepare the future of Eclipse Sirius . So what’s next? What would we cook for you in Eclipse Oxygen? As we already said in our talk, we are already preparing the...

Anger

Do you ever feel that? This week I often dreamt I had the gift of ubiquity… I could replicate myself and be in several places at once. It would be a really useful skill to participate to EclipseCon Europe. I am angry to not be able to see all the talks I would have liked to attend. Happily, as every year all the slides will be available on the EclipseCon website and most of the talks are recorded ...

Fear

Wednesday will be a huge day for Obeo at EclipseCon Europe 2016 . You will find several talks about Eclipse Sirius in the program, and one thing for you, you have to attend our talk about Sirius 4.1: Let Me Sirius That For You! As usual when I have to give a talk I am a little frightened but in fact I love this feeling which pushes me to do my best :) Our slides are ready, our demo is exciting, no...

Disgust

What feeling do you never want to encounter in life? For me it’s Disgust! Nevertheless, I encounter it sometimes, in very special cases… for example when as a Java developer I have to work with the reflection API to fix some unthinkable problem. As the team behind Sirius, what matters most to us is to be sure that our final users never feel this about our product. That’s why in each release we wor...
