Thanks for the pointer, I have looked at some online tutorials and ordered some more textbooks, including one (the only one?) on the EMF.|
By the way, I have found a number of excellent tutorials out there. Obviously, some people put a *LOT* of effort into making such information around 2008 and 2009. However, the current constellation of EMF, eCore, xCore, Papayrus, XML Schema, UML 2.0, SysML, various Eclipse versions, etc... if a bit daunting for beginners. For newcomers it is hard to get an overview and figure out where you are supposed to start if you want to actually make something that compiles and runs. It is even more intimidating if your target environment is not a blank slate, but rather some sort of complicated environment like iOS, Android, Google App Engine. Does the beginner have to start from scratch and model the entire Android environment before he can get started on his app?
That complexity is definitely a barrier to growth and acceptance of the technology. What is the community at large thinking in terms of evangelism, making it easier to get newcomers onboard, prebuilt models of common environments, etc....?
