Are you tired of editing endless XML files to assemble your modeling tool chain? The new editor for the Modeling Workflow Engine will be your friend!
With sophisticated features such as navigation, cross-file validation and first-class support for referenced properties, the editor for modeling workflow configuration files will greatly simplify the tedious work of chaining your various Eclipse Modeling Tools. Be it a validator, a model to model transformation or a code generator - a workflow component for your technology can be easily created and automation is at your fingertips.
In this lightning demo I will give a short overview of the Modeling Workflow Engine, its concepts and its new editor. The audience will get an idea of the features of MWE and how it can simplify the composition of different Eclipse Modeling Components into an integrated environment. I will show how helpful navigation, content assist and live validation of configuration files can be and how easily a new modeling workflow can be created for a specific environment.
