DSM (Domain Specific Modeling) allows very usefull tooling but users often requires real life use cases to understand how it could be deployed in their day-to-day work.
GMF is an Eclipse Modeling technology to create new graphical designers. It's very powerfull and allow very ergonomic environment, but it's quite difficult to master and adapt for real life designers.
Some newbies on GMF think this technology doesn't allow them to add rich features such as drag'n drop, lazy modeling, dynamic views, reconnection, validation, ... but it's only because they doesn't know the power of GMF Runtime.
This talk will show several use cases of GMF by doing live demos of killer features on resulted designers:
- designers for Entity of information systems implemented with JavaEE
- designers for real time systems
- designers for requirements
- designers for embedded systems
- designers for SOA
- designers for UML Profil viewpoints
- designers for screens cinematic
This talk will not show how to develop with GMF but will be focus on extended features which can be implemented on top of it with a viewpoint approach for dynamic graphical views.
