Hey guys,

my project has reached quite a bit of complexity. SInce its an extension of the OT Tooling for another language there are many places where I had to do some adjustments. This results in a ton of roles and a few teams. (70 Roles, 10 Teams). Everything would be fine if my Tooling were alone in the eclipse workbench and the only files and projects open are of my language extension.

But sadly thats not the case. So it would be wise to activate my tooling only when it's needed. Otherwise I might break some working stuff ^^. The "when it's needed" is by far the most difficult thing when adapting a complex framework with OT.

So what should I do? There are several ways to handle the activation of my teams and roles. I could either use the "base when" or "team activation". Or a mix of both. But what should I use if I have the choice? Should one prefer the TeamActivation or the RoleActivation (I ll call it that way to make it easier..)?

Or could you generally say that it's best to do the activation on the highest level (control flow) possible? For example, Team, Role, Callin. In that order.

And a second question: Is there some tool which might help me get an overview over active teams and roles?

thanks and greetings

Jan Marc

Hi Jan Marc,

Easy answer first:

There are two tools for that:

In the debugger use the "Team Monitor" view.
This even has an entry in the online help Smile

In the running workbench open the "OT/Equinox Monitor" view.
No help entry, but there's two things you can do in this view:
- (de)activate a team using the checkbox
- inquire number of role instances by clicking a row
info will appear in the hover.

HTH,
Stephan
