Ganymede brings an important pack of modeling technologies, one of those is EMF Compare which enables team working using any kind of model, easing the high scale usage of Model Driven Development.
The talk will start with a presentation of the 0.8.0 features released with Ganymede and the modeling package : differencing of any kind of model (both standards or specifics), merging of those differences and integration with CVS/SVN.
Then a demo will show what can be done with the advanced features : model evolution reports, higher level differences and leveraging of the comparison engine for testing purpose.
The talk will be concluded with a preview of the 1.0 (Galileo) release demonstrating, among other nice things, the EMF Compare integration with graphical modelers.
