During the ongoing work on development of a language for enterprise modeling it seems reasonable to develop a prototype modeling tool. Especially in case of enterprise models, which tend to become huge very quickly, it is important to have a possibility to define views on the models, and store them persistently. Eclipse ecosystem offers a bunch of frameworks for creation of DSLs, but these only support certain types of mapping between model elements and notations.

Helge concentrated during the work on his Master Thesis on development of that prototype tooling.

Our talk concentrated on building a repository for GMF-based diagram editor models. Due to the limitation in resources, the goal was to minimize the adoptions and changes of GMF/EMF generators and create a prototype model repository.


Thanks to Marco Kuznik from Loroma for providing the video of the talk. It is pretty dark, but you can hear our voices and it is in German.
