Modern domain-specific modeling environments offer rich graphical editors, which provide multiple views to highlight specific aspects of the design, in order to manage complexity. Such views may capture taxonomy or containment hierarchies, as well as interconnections of the system under design, and offer advanced navigation and traceability means to highlight a selected element in different related views. Within Eclipse, the Sirius project provides an easy way to define such graphical modeling environments.
