Domain Specific Languages

Massively Reducing the Effort to Test Xtext Languages

Session Type: 
Standard Talk [25 minutes]
Speakers

Most people agree that to develop a stable and mature software, it is helpful to have automated tests. This also applies for developing Domain Specific Languages (DSL) and their tool support.

However, during the recent years of doing consulting around Xtext, we came to notice that the test coverage tends to be too low to rely on or even non-existent. People perceived tests as too difficult to write and preferred to focus there efforts on the to-be-delivered part of the software.

YAKINDU SCT - Domain-Specific Statecharts

Session Type: 
Standard Talk [25 minutes]
Speakers

The Yakindu open-source project, hosted at EclipseLabs (see http://www.yakindu.org and http://code.google.com/a/eclipselabs.org/p/yakindu/), aims at providing a modular workbench for the model-based development of embedded systems. It so far supports the modeling of state chart and block diagrams in terms of its SCT (Statechart Tools) and DAMOS (Dynamical Systems Modeler) modules. Additional tool modules are under development and may be expected in the near future.
