My Eclipse Newsletter!

I am so proud and happy: I have an Eclipse Newsletter dedicated to me!

Well, there other intersting stuff in the newsletter, but I am the star!

My minions and admirers are so nice to me they pooled together to say nice things about me! Thanks to Sébastien, Saadia, Francis, and Ronan for their efforts in writing these articles! And thanks to others (Susan, Roxanne, and Charles) for helping them in their efforts to support me – I greatly appreciate it!

Go and read from them about:

And hopefully also glanced at the other Eclipse news — especially the PolarSys Rover, where I’ll have a role.

Now that you have read all the good stuff , you just have to try me out! Get me from the Papyrus Downloads!

Trust me! You won’t regret it! And that’s a money-back offer! (wait… I’m free…)

Papyrus Datasheets

If you were at EclipseCon Europe 2014, you might have seen my datasheet.

If you missed that event, not to worry, you can still get one, although you will have to print it yourself (and it does look better in color)… I now have three datasheets available on the Eclipse PolarSys solutions web page, along with those of the other PolarSys solutions.

Have a look and let me know what you think!

My first sub-project – Papyrus for RealTime

It had to happen at some point: I now have my first sub-project proposal: Papyrus for Real-Time (a.k.a., Papyrus-RT)!

I already support UML (of course), SysML, MARTE, and a few other incubation profiles. This new project is described as:

Papyrus-RT is an industrial-grade, complete modeling environment for the development of complex, software intensive, real-time, embedded, cyber-physical systems.

The aim of this project is to add model-based full code generation to the Papyrus platform. Of course, it is very difficult to do complete code generation from models for all domains, so this new project does not claim to do so. It specifically targets:

Papyrus-RT provides an industrial-grade, complete and full-fledged environment for the development of software and systems that has to present at least one of the following features: reactive, distributed, real-time, or embedded. It covers several concerns related to designing such systems, i.e., modeling, code generation, runtime support, advanced debugging facilities, and schedulability and performance analysis.

So no web project or business rules here.

Also, just like UML “unified” multiple modeling approaches, Papyrus for RealTime has a goal of unifying the existing approaches in this domain. UML-RT is the first implementation and, I’ve been told, xtUML is also being worked on.

There’s a lot more information on the project proposal page so check it out!

I’m also interested in your opinions, so feel free to comment below (or in its official Eclipse forum).

Interesting times ahead!

EclipseCon Europe – Papyrus Summit

Today (Tuesday) at EclipseCon Europe, there is a whole-day summit about me! Meet me and my friends, new and old, in Wilhelm-Kramer Zimmer for a whole day of fun!

We’ll be talking about how a newcomer sees me, about technical stuff like GMF, OCL, EMF, EGit, and Gerrit, and also about less esoteric stuff like collaboration, integration, validation,  comparison, and reviews. More information available on the summit wiki.

Curious open-source modeling, come and have a look!

EclipseCon Europe 2014 – Unconference

Well, it was a fun day. I learned a lot more about my capabilities from the nice people at CEA (you know who you are!). It seems I can do a lot of things – and still so young!

Today, attendees where taught how to get started with me, as well as being told about some nice shortcuts from the developers themselves!

And then, they were told how my capabilities can help companies design cars (did you know there are lots of control systems in a car?)!

Today was a great day and tomorrow, there will be a modeling summit, I sure hope they’ll talk about me! (note: they will…).

EclipseCon Europe 2014

I am at EclipseCon Europe this week. You can look for me (look at my photo), but I will not be walking the halls… Instead, you can ask some of my parents (people from CEA, Ericsson, and Zeligsoft – or people with my stickers on their computers) questions about me!

Even better, you can attend the sessions where I am the star!

Look for my peeps and ask questions – I am sure you will like me (I am so loveable…).
