After Ottawa in 2008, the 2nd biannual symposium on Eclipse & OMG will held in June at Minneapolis. This symposium will be introduced by Kenn Hussey, the leader of the Eclipse MDT project which provides implementations and tools for standard metamodels. It is the opportunity to discuss about how OMG standards can be implemented on Eclipse, and how Eclipse can influence the definition of new standards.
With Hugo Bruneliere and Jordi Cabot of INRIA/AtlanMod team, I will present the Eclipse implementation of SMM (Structured Metrics Metamodel), one of the OMG standards supported by the MoDisco project. We will explain how this metamodel can be used to represent metrics computed from Java source code. And how it can help while developing Eclipse components, by measuring their compliance to Eclipse development best practices.
You can read three of my posts on this topic :
- Emf and SMM to export Code Metrics to Sonar and Squale
- How to create an EMF model from a Java application
- Reverse-Engineering of JUnit Tests
Talks on other standards will be given by people from University of Madrid, NASA (JPL), IBM, CEA, Model Driven Solutions, Ericsson, Intalio, RedHat, Obeo and Thales.
