With the increasing popularity of Domain Specific Languages (DSLs), the need for quality tooling in the form of “language workbenches” and graphical editors will be critical to their success. The Eclipse Modeling Project (EMP) includes the necessary components for abstract and graphical syntax development, model transformation and code generation; that is, all you need for a DSL Toolkit in Eclipse. This presentation will illustrate the capabilities of the Eclipse Modeling Project to develop a DSL and associated generators for use in a model-driven software development (MDSD) scenario. Specifically, the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF), Graphical Modeling Framework (GMF), Model-to-Model (M2M) and Model-to-Text (M2T) Transformation projects will be demonstrated in the context of a real-world DSL toolkit.

Richard Gronback works as a chief scientist for modeling products at Borland Software Corporation, leads the Eclipse Graphical Modeling Framework (GMF) project, and co-leads the PMC for the Eclipse Modeling Project. Previously, Richard worked for TogetherSoft, Ariba, and Andersen Consulting, and was a reactor operator in the U.S. Navy.

Ed Merks is the project lead of the Eclipse Modeling Framework project and a co-lead of the top-level Modeling project. He has many years of in-depth experience in the design and implementation of languages, frameworks and application development environments. He holds a Ph.D. in computing science and is a co-author of the authoritative Eclipse Modeling Framework, A Developer’s Guide (Addison-Wesley 2003). He works for IBM Rational Software at the Toronto Lab.
