UML & DSL thank their lucky star Sirius

Choosing a modeling technology, is too often reduced to the selection of either UML or DSL. Even so, in practice, we often need both: UML and profiles to benefit from a standard and off-the-shelf mature tools, and DSL to benefit from a custom notation over a custom data structure.

Rather than opposing these approaches, Sirius can be used to efficiently combine existing UML modelers with DSL-based tools.

Arcadia / Capella, a field-proven modeling solution for system and software architecture engineering

The Melody ecosystem is a field-proven modeling solution offering an environment with a high added-value for engineers working on system, software and hardware architectures. At the center of this ecosystem is a graphical modeling workbench supporting the Arcadia engineering method. Arcadia mainly focuses on functional analysis, (complex) architecture definition and early validation. Both the method and its supporting ecosystem are currently widely deployed in the Thales Group, in all domains across several countries, thanks to a massive rollout of model-based approaches.

EcoreTools 2.0: The Luna revival

EcoreTools is one of the prominent graphical modelers in Eclipse: it's pretty much the first step users discovering EMF are taking. Yet the project got little love over the years since the original team stepped out.

This is changing for the Eclipse Luna cycle as the Sirius project enables the creation of rich modeling environment very quickly. A complete rewrite of the modeler is being done with in the end :

Uses Cases of PolarSys technologies for Architects

In this talk we will explain how Polarsys technologies dramatically changes the way architects can work on complex systems.

By using the Polarsys and Eclipse Modeling stacks (Sirius, GenDoc, Acceleo, xText, OCL, ...) industry solutions can be created which fully fit the needs of architects (design, analysis, verification, simulation, etc.) in many domains (Transportation, Space, Insurance, Telecom, etc).

Sirius role-playing game: Build diagram, table and tree editors in 20 minutes!

Sirius is an official Eclipse Project based on a mature, field-proven technology. It allows the easy and rapid development of custom graphical modeling workbenches (diagrams, tables and trees) by leveraging the Eclipse Modeling technologies, including EMF and GMF.

For now more than 4 years, Sirius has been deployed and improved in operational and intensive contexts.

Turning Eclipse into an Arduino programming platform for kids

"Daddy, daddy, how does a computer work?"
We're used to say that curiosity is a bad habit but it is nonetheless one of the greatest strenghts of kids: they are eager to learn. Learn how a computer works, how one can build an application for a phone or a tablet, how one can create a video game. The best answer is probably to give them the tools to discover by themselves the answer to those questions.
Eclipse is used by hundreds of thousands of adults for programming activies, so why not by kids? How to turn Eclipse into a programming environment for kids?
