Textual Modeling Tools seem to be VERY hot these days :-)...
In this session we will have a deeper look at various Textual Modeling Tools for eclipse.
Among the candidates (or soccer teams) are currently TMF projects like Xtext as well as TCS (Textual Concrete Syntax) and others like EMFText and TEF (Textual Editing Framework).
I will show the same example in all 4 textual modeling frameworks so you get very good feeling for similarities and differences, pros and cons etc. At the same time some experiences from usage in real world projects will be discussed, as well as integration of textual and graphical modeling (depending on the situation each view has advantages)
If time allows we will catch a short glimpse on other textual language workbenches.
