We are very happy to welcome you to the Mangrove Project!
Mangrove is an exciting new project proposed under the SOA top-level project. It is a direct evolution of the existing STP Intermediate Model component which is available in the SOA Tool Platform Project, currently being replaced by the SOA project. The main goal of Mangrove is to unite different editors and platforms related to SOA in Eclipse in order to achieve a better integrated development and runtime environment for all things SOA.
I really like the idea of having similar models in differnt SOA projects and to integrate them via Mangrove, rather then having to define a common model. That will facilitate to better integrate the current projects withi the SOA platform and integrate new projects in the future. For SOA project purposes Mangrove is a crucial component to achieve the goal of creating a true platform.
P.S.: Looking forward to talk with you at EclipseCon what role Swordfish could play here.
thank you for your interest and support! Looking forward to talking to you in detail at EclipseCON about Mangrove's role within the SOA TLP. Swordfish is certainly one of the main targets for Mangrove transformations and we need to define precisely what kind of artifacts should be generated for it.
I'm very happy to see the Intermediate Model component becomes a project.
Mangrove seems to be a very good way to integrate the different
projects of the new SOA TLP. You demonstrated it in the past by
integrating BPMN and SCA.
