SmartTools Software Factory

The SmartTools software factory is a set of Domain-Specific Languages
with associated tools used to develop more rapidelly Eclipse-based
application. The principal advantages of this SmartTools approach
- A set of model or Domain Specific Language (DSL) driven your plugins
software development. Let your language, its DSL produce automatically
the Java model (java class to represented Abstract Syntax Tree),
parser for a particular concrete syntax and various graphical view.
- A Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) on top of Eclipse frame-work for
your composition plugins. Thank to particular DSLs (definition of the
OSGi services), this SOA manages automatically the communications
(with asynchronous messages) between your plugins.
- The SmartTools approach completely integrate into Eclipse
environment. The SmartTools functionalities come in complementarity of
those basic from Eclipse framework.
