Capella, the MBSE solution, is well represented in the latest Eclipse Newsletter of December, with no less than six attractive articles that describe the industrial needs addressed by this solution, its methodology and features, and its ecosystem (add-ons, related technologies, working group, etc.).   The first article introduces the others, presenting the main benefits of a Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach to take the challenges of complex systems engineering, with a focus on Capella which implements a field-proven MBSE method. The second focus on the Arcadia method, on which Capella is based. Arcadia covers the methodology and the high-level conceptual ontology and viewpoints. Capella has been purposely-built to provide the notation and diagrams needed to create models that exactly fit with Arcadia’s approach. Then, next article is about Capella Studio, which is based on Kitalpha, an integrated development environment for the development of model-based workb...

You are going to create a domain-specific modeling tool and you wonder how users will edit and visualize the models: textually with a dedicated syntax and a rich textual editor? or graphically with diagrams drawn with a palette and smart tools? Both approaches are interesting and can be used complementary: While text is able to carry more detailed information, a diagram highlights the relationship between elements much better. In the end, a good tool should combine both, and use each notation where it suits best. Written by TypeFox & Obeo, this white paper explains the benefits of each approach. Then, it presents Eclipse Xtext and Eclipse Sirius, two open-source frameworks for the development of textual and graphical model editors. And finally, find out two detailed use-cases where these two technologies can be integrated in the same modeling workbench. Download the white paper.   This subject was presented at EclipseCon Europe & SiriusCon this ye...

Once again, for the third consecutive edition, SiriusCon went too fast! We looked forward to attending this international conference on graphical modeling for a long time, and now we can't wait to organize the next one.   This 2017 edition gathered a lot of people, who came from 11 different countries (some of them even came from NORTH AMERICA!), and it was a pleasure to have all of them among the Sirius community. At SiriusCon 2017, every attendees, from beginner to advanced users, enjoyed several presentations with a specific focus on Eclipse Sirius itself, others about companion technologies and feedback from users who used these technologies to build their custom tools! We would like to thank all the speakers for their great contribution to the Sirius community. We were pleased to welcome Mike Milinkovich, the executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, who introduced the conference with a Keynote. He has an unique perspective regarding what happened in the Software Ind...

EclipseCon Europe 2017 is already over... It's again a successful edition that has just finished! As the latest editions, the Eclipse Foundation gathered more than 600 attendees from several open source communities, and we were part of the modeling one. At Ludwisburg, we had a busy schedule with 5 talks and a booth at the innovation market. And we came back really happy since we received several positive feedback about Eclipse Sirius & Eclipse Xtext, two model editors. A white paper has been just published about this attractive topic. Do not hesitate to read it. We also presented for the very first time M2Doc 1.0, the open source solution to generate documents from models. Get a better overview of M2Doc with this short video. And we were already there to the Modeling Guided Tour Day at the Unconference, a conference fully dedicated to the major components and projects of Eclipse Modeling project and the communities behind them. Now, next step for the modeli...
