The Eclipse Graphical Modeling Framework project version 2.2 comes with few notable improvements. One of most important and long-awaited changes is the introduction of a "real" Model-To-Model technology into GMF Tooling. With full power of M2M QVT Operational Mapping Language (QVTO), the transformation of numerous GMF models are now a piece of cake.
Additionally, GMF Xpand's new integration with QVTO disambiguates the 'Q' (Query), meaning there's no need to learn yet another language to write your model queries. With the availability of the superior imperative OCL and the availability to reuse QVTO helpers, the whole MDD@GMF process is now as smooth as silk.
And of course, the talk will highlight other breathtaking improvements in GMF tooling since the last release.
Artem Tikhomirov is employed by Borland Software Corporation and currently works on the Eclipse Graphical Modeling Framework (GMF) project. Artem has been a leader in the development of Borland's Together® Edition for Eclipse product, and currently leads development on the generative tooling side of GMF.

Alexander Shatalin is a software developer at Borland Software Corporation. Alexander is one of GMF project developers and in the same time takes part in a commercial Borland DSL toolkit development.

This session is part of the curated collection of short talks titled
"Advances in Model Transformation: GMF meets QVTO, and MTL"
