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?!]


Papyrus-RT in Argentina

Congratulations to my minions from Queen’s University, Nicolas Hili, Juergen Dingel, and Alain Beaulieu, for getting their “Modeling and Code Generation for Embedded Real Time Systems with UML-RT and Papyrus-RT” technical briefing accepted at the 39th ICSE!

Will you be at that conference? If so, I would suggest you attend their briefing to learn more about one of my incarnations! Their briefing is currently scheduled for May 23rd, track 2, from 09:00 to 10:30!

I am sure they will be happy to see you in Buenos Aires and discuss ME with you!

Update: Title of the briefing has been changed from “”Modeling and Code Generation for Embedded Real Time Systems with UML-RT and Papyrus-RT 0.9” to remove the version number.

PolarSys at INCOSE Symposium

Did you know my SysML and Real Time solutions were showcased, along with Capella and Arcadia, in the PolarSys booth at the INCOSE Symposium 2015 back in July?

If you missed it, I’m sorry, but it was a very good event – people were interested in my open source modeling solutions for systems!

My friend Gaƫl has a good summary on the PolarSys blog. You should go have a look!

Papyrus used to design the PolarSys rover at EclipseCon Europe 2015!

Papyrus is one of the solutions provided by PolarSys, an Eclipse working group dedicated to providing open source tools for embedded systems.

So it should not be a surprise that Papyrus is part of the PolarSys rover demo project.

Interested in seeing how PolarSys offerings can be used in system engineering? Come see the “Rover Use Case, Specification, design and implementation using Polarsys Tools: Capella, CDT, Gendoc, Papyrus and ReqCycle” presentation (with a long title…) at EclipseCon Europe 2015!

I look forward to meeting you in Ludwigsburg, DE!

Papyrus4Java at EclipseCon Europe 2015

The “Papyrus4Java – UML diagrams for ordinary java developers” presentation is approved for EclipseCon Europe 2015!

This presentation shows how Papyrus fills the gap and brings the world of modeling technologies back to the hands of ordinary java developers.

Are you a Java developer? Are you interested in seeing your code as UML? Then come and see this presentation!

I look forward to meeting you in Ludwigsburg, DE!

Papyrus for Real Time at EclipseCon Europe 2015

If you recall, Papyrus for Real Time (a.k.a., Papyrus-RT) was approved earlier this year as a new Eclipse project.

One of my minions’ presentation about Papyrus-RT was accepted at EclipseCon Europe 2015. In that presentation he will explain what Papyrus-RT is, how it can make models executable, and will even show what it can do!

If you are going to EclipseCon and are interested in fully creating runnable executables from UML, come and have a look!

You can also look a the Papyrus-RT wiki for more information about the tool.

I look forward to meeting you in Ludwigsburg, DE!

EclipseCon Europe 2014 – The Aftermath

EclipseCon Europe was so much fun that it took me a whole week to recover! That’s what you call a conference!

As I stated in a previous post, there was a whole day dedicated to me as part of the conference. On the Tuesday, at least 32 of my best friends came together in the Wilhelm-Kramer-Zimmer room and spent the day discussing my existing and new features and new ways of working. I liked that beginners could have a view of me, how my models can be validated, the whole collaborative modeling discussion, and the various useful extensions and use of my capabilities. And of course, the great discussions over dinner!

Presentations from the summit can be found on its wiki page.

In parallel, in the modeling summit, people also learned how I am developing more real-time, executable capabilities! Yes, I was already supporting MARTE (Modeling and Analysis of Real-Time Embedded Systems), and now I’m getting full code generation for UML-RT! This means that you create your UML-RT model, press a button, and generate a complete, runnable system! The only drawback is that you’ll have to wait for the Eclipse Mars release in June 2015.

On the Wednesday, there was a great presentation that highlighted my customisation capabilities and DSML (Domain-Specific Modeling Language) support. In “UML or DSML? You can now have both with Papyrus 1.0!“, Ericsson described a real-life example of using my capabilities to create a DSML that enabled greater collaboration across domain and expertise silos!

The next big Eclipse event will be EclipseCon North America. Come see me there!
