Papyrus 1.1: A greatly enhanced user-driven MDE enabler (Sponsored by CEA List)
Following last year’s promotion beyond incubation status, Papyrus continues to evolve as an industrial-strength facility. Most recently major progress has been achieved in the following three key areas: (i) enhancing the user experience, (ii) improvements in performance and scalability, and (iii) greater robustness and stability. In this talk we first describe the advances made in these general aspects as well as the development of new capabilities and enhancements in support of domain-specific modeling languages. To that end, Johan Hardy of Spacebel will describe their experience with the Papyrus tool in the space applications domain.
In addition to providing the above technical improvements, the Papyrus team has also expanded significant effort towards the development of a broad open-source community dedicated to Papyrus and its ecosystem. Consequently, the second part of the talk is devoted to the forthcoming establishment of the Papyrus User Consortium, which is an open community of industrial users whose role is to steer the evolution of Papyrus to ensure that it will meet their current and future needs. This is described by Francis Bordeleau of Ericsson, who is one of the primary drivers behind this initiative.
Finally, we will present the current roadmap for Papyrus and its ecosystem.
