I'm studying EPF for business purpose, and I'm asked to see how far I can customize the static html interface that EPF produces.
What I currently understand of EPF is :
- it uses EMF to generate graphically the objects ... (method content, method plugin, configurations etc.) AND the method content objects (delivery process, practice, task etc.).
- method content is persisted as XMI files (which I believe is a standard format for UML data storage in XML format). These files are those who will be processed in order to generate the static interface.
- this interface generating process is made by JTidy. I believe every object that the EPF user can manipulate has a template which JTidy understands.
First question : is my understanding correct ?
Second question : is the model manipulated by the EPF user customizable ? Is EPF intended to let the user produce his own data model ? I see that EPF allows me to create custom categories. But if I find it too "generic", can I easily introduce a "competency" object, and make it useable in EPF like a "task", "roles" etc. ?
Third question : I searched for these template files used by JTidy, but didn't find them. Are they included in the EPF package ? Is EPF intended to let the user create it's own templates ?
By advance, thank you for the time you'll spend answering me !
Have a nice day.
