    Recent Project Proposals

    EGL Development Tools
    EGL enables applications to be re-hosted across changing runtime environments without changing the source code.
    EMF Facet
    EMF Facet aims to contribute a dynamic extension mechanism for EMF tools by introducing new viewpoints (or "facets") on their underlying data.
    EMF Store
    Many EMF-based applications need to share data among multiple clients. A model repository can help an application share instances of an EMF model.
    GenGMF will provide an efficient tooling for developing graphical editors using the Graphical Modeling Framework (GMF).
    SOA Policy Tools
    This project will focus on providing tools to specify concrete policy languages and create, manipulate and enable team-based functionality for policy documents.
    Tools for Mobile Web (TMW)
    TMW will be a basis for web development tooling for mobile devices. For Web applications, TMW will add functionality for mobile specific features like skinning and device deployment.
    Tycho is focused on a Maven-centric, manifest-first approach to building Eclipse plug-ins, features, update sites, RCP applications and OSGi bundles.
