Intermediate Metamodel: Definitions [message #619030] Mon, 08 September 2008 07:52 Go to next message

Hi,

I am very interested in the concepts of the intermediate metamodel. Are
the definitions of the terms in the wiki
http://wiki.eclipse.org/STP_Intermediate_Metamodel the official
definitions? To use the metamodel within my research area it is very
important that we have a strong and formal definition of terms.

Is there a metamodel element that represents the purpose of a service
element? I.e. what the service is for and what functionality it
provides? Or is it part of the service element?

Greetings

Mike

Hi Michael,

Take a look at spagic http://spagic.org

It's a project based on stp intermediate model. Basically you could

1) start to model your process at high level with bpmn modeler,

2) than you could annotate the bpmn diagram with jbi services,
and then generate

3) Generate the intermediate model and

4) then get a running service assembly for servicemix.

3) Keep monitored your process execution with spagic console.


The first three features are provided to you by eclipse stp, the code
generator is spagic stuff.

The good thing is that spagic stuff is LGPL licensed.

Hi Mike,

Thank you for your interest in the IM. The definitions on the wiki page
are not of a formal nature, however they do, I believe, convey the purpose
of the elements. That said, this page is in urgent need of updating, in
particular as the IM metamodel has been improved (although the
descriptions remain accurate, there are currently a few more elements in
the IM - you can check out the updated model component from the STP SVN).

I would be very interested to find out more about your research in order
to better understand what formal definitions you require, it would be
great if you could give a quick overview of what you plan to do. Also, any
suggestions for improving the IM are welcome!

For now, to reply to your question about the service element, there is no
additional element for describing the purpose of a service, however this
could be done for instance by using attached properties (note that the
Service is a ConfigurableElement). Not sure if this would fulfil your
needs?

Cheers,
Adrian.

Hi Adrian,

thanks for your answer. I am working in a small research group in
germany. We do research work regarding service oriented architectures.

Currently, we are comparing different service models to get an insight
in different approaches (OASIS SOA reference model, SCA, STP-IM) and to
get a common understanding of the terms in the context of services.

And since we are thinking about changing our tool stack to an open
source stack with eclipse STP we decided to take a look at STP-IM :)

Greetings

Michael
