GMT is particularly proud to join the new EMP
Top-Level Eclipse Project.

Many thanks for Richard Gronback of Borland Software
and Ed Merks of IBM for having made all this possible.

This is the beginning of new and exciting
adventures in Model Driven Engineering (MDE).
The GMT project will play its role of research incubator
within EMP by continuing to produce advanced research
prototypes in MDE. Hopefully a large part of the ideas and software
contributed in these research protoptypes may later find their way to
widely available distributed commercial MDE tooling.

ECLIPSE open source system is providing unprecedented
opportunities for MDE to be known, to rapidly mature and to prove
that it represents a real alternative to software developement
practices. EMP is now the main vehicle to drive this movement.
We are very happy to be on board.

GMT is looking forward to welcoming new high quality
prototypes that will extend model engineering practices
beyond current limits and assess MDE practical applicability.
For the time being there are eigh prototypes that have
been contributed to GMT (AM3, AMW, ATL, Fuut-je,
MOFScript, oAW, UMLX and VIATRA2). All implement
complementary views of the MDE evolving vision and
several of them are closely related and use each other
facilities. New contributions should be announced soon.

Being part of the new EMP Top-Level Project means
that a lot of new synergies are going to be discovered
and will foster collaboration between industry-based tools
and research prototypes, often using recognized standards
like the OMG/MOF Metalanguage.
