Papyrus and the Papyrus IC at Euroforum

Yesterday, my minion Maximilian went to the Automotive Software Development Conference (Euroforum) and presented me and my Industry Consortium!
I hope I made a good impression (I’m sure Maximilian did a great job)!

Maybe one day, you will be driving a car with software designed with my help!


Papyrus Oxygen now with BPMN

If there are lots of news, it must be EclipseCon Europe! (hint: it is!)


Today’s news is about my support for the OMG’s Business Process Model and Notation, or BPMN: It is now supported on my Oxygen version!

Do you want me to help you model a business process? Then I invite you to try my updated Papyrus BPMN v0.9.1 feature (implementing BPMN 2.0) available in the Eclipse Marketplace.

The BPMN logo is a trademark of the OMG

Building a Papyrus-RT powered Rover

I was happy to discover that Bluzio [?] posted, in the Robots y modelos blog, very detailed instructions on how you can be:

Running UML-RT models on a Raspberry Pi-based rover

And of course, this was done using my own tool implementing UML-RT: Papyrus for Real Time (Also see Links page)!

This blog post contains a detailed example on how to use Papyrus-RT in robotic applications! It discuss everything from the hardware used (based on the PolarSys Rover) to the software generated with Papyrus-RT.

If you are into robots and open source software, you must go and read that post!

Bluzio, I hope you will read this blog and let me know who you are so you, and your university, can be publicly thanked for your work!

UPDATE: Thank you to Antonio Garcia-Dominguez from Aston University‘s  School of Engineering & Applied Science for all this material!

Papyrus IC at MODELS 2017

The Papyrus Industry Consortium had a significant presence at the ACM/IEEE 20th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems (MODELS 2017), held from Sunday, September 17, 2017 through Friday, September 22 in Austin, Texas, U.S.A..
The Consortium was a GOLD sponsor of the event and had a booth with posters from several of its members. It also sponsored an event at the Easy Tiger pub near the conference hotel.
The conference was a great opportunity to meet many academic and industrial members of the MODELS community, and spread the word about the Papyrus ecosystem and the Papyrus IC. Members and participants of the consortium presented keynotes, conference and workshop papers and tutorials, and organized several workshops.
Prof. Juergen Dingel from Queen’s University gave a very well-received keynote of the EXE workshop, titled “UML-RT and Papyrus-RT: Towards an Open-Source MDE Tooling Infrastructure for the Internet of Things.”
The two tutorials on Papyrus and Papyrus-RT, “Embedded and reactive systems development with UML-RT and Papyrus-RT” by Nicolas Hili, Juergen Dingel (Queen’s University), Ernesto Posse (Zeligsoft) and “Developing Domain-specific Modeling Tools with Papyrus” by Philip Langer (EclipseSource), Florian Noyrit (CEA) and Rémi Schneckenburger (CEA), where also quite well-received.
The Papyrus IC Research/Academia committee has begun planning a Papyrus event for next year’s conference which will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark. We hope to see you there!

Papyrus IC BOF at EclipseCon Europe

My industry consortium is hosting a Birds of a Feather (BOF) session at EclipseCon Europe!

You are all invited to go, mingle, and talk about me with my minions on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, from 19:30 to 20:30!

And don’t forget to thank my EclipseSource minions for organizing this!

You can also look at the official PolarSys Papyrus Industry Consortium blog posting!

[PS: isn’t a “birds of a feather” session just perfect for me?!]

Official Papyrus-RT Press Release

papyrusrt256Well, you can’t be more official than a press release from the Papyrus Industry Consortium! I know I already mentioned this release, but this is more official!

This is what happened today for Papyrus for Real Time (Papyrus-RT) v1.0!

You can see the press release for a limited time on the main Eclipse page and on the Eclipse Foundation Press Releases page, or on its own page!

And two of my minions were nice enoug to provide nice quotes about my real time variant. A special thank you goes out toJean-Michel and Bran!

Interested in trying out a free Domain-Specific, model-driven tool for embedded systems? Give Papyrus-RT a try!

My minions at MODELS 2017 conference

As some of you may know, MODELS is The Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems. This is where all the smart people go to talk about models

Did you know that “models” is my middle name? Well, not really, but it is what I’m all about.

Given my love for models, my industry consortium has decided to be a GOLD sponsor of the conference! Isn’t that a nice gift (both for me and you)!

This year, MODELS is held in Austin, Texas from Sept 20 to 22. with satellite events on Sept. 17-18. If you are going, say hi to my minions!

And of course, many of my minions will be there, attending and presenting at workshops and tutorials! If you are going, go say hi to my minions:

Dimitris, Ernesto, Federico, Francis, Jordi, Juergen, Philip, Sebastien, and Tanja

You can find them by looking at this list of all the things they will be presenting at the conference!

You should also ask them about the special event! (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

My minions and I hope to see you in Austin!

Papyrus for Real Time is born!

ME-RT (a.k.a., Papyrus for Real Time, a.k.a., Papyrus-RT) was first presented/announced at EclipseCon North America 2014. In the 1220 days Since then, work my minions have worked tirelessly to finally releasing v1.0 yesterday. Papyrus-RT is now officially out of incubation! This “birth” (Papyrus-RT did break out of the incubation “egg”…) was even announced during the quartery Eclipse Foundation members meeting!

You can find all the nitty-gritty details of this release here.

Congratulations to all my minions from CEA, EclipseSource, Ericsson, Zeligsoft, and all others who have contributed their time, work, and support for all their great contributions in bringing out a new offering in my growing product line!
