The Model Development Tools (MDT) project focuses on big "M" modeling within the Modeling project. Its purpose is twofold:
The XML Schema Definition is a reference library that provides an API for use with any code that examines, creates or modifies W3C XML Schema (standalone or as part of other artifacts, such as XForms or WSDL documents).
XSD is a library that provides an API for manipulating the components of an XML Schema as described by the W3C XML Schema specifications, as well as an API for manipulating the DOM-accessible representation of XML Schema as a series of XML documents, and for keeping these representations in agreement as schemas are modified.
The library will include services to serialize and deserialize XML Schema documents, and to do integrity checking of schemas (for example, not using a maximum value for a simpleType which is invalid considering the base type of that simpleType). The project goal is to support 100% of the functionality of XML schema representation, but not necessarily to provide document against schema assessment or validation services, which are normally provided by a validating parser, such as Apache's Xerces-J.
BPMN2 is an open source component of the Model Development Tools (MDT) subproject to provide a metamodel implementation based on the forthcoming Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) 2.0 OMG specification.
IMM is an open source component of the Model Development Tools (MDT) subproject to provide metamodel/profile implementations based on the forthcoming Information Management Metamodel (IMM) OMG specification.
MoDisco provides a framework to develop model-driven tools for software modernization. It aims at supporting use-cases such as Quality Assurance, Documentation, Improvement and Migration.
OCL is an implementation of the Object Constraint Language (OCL) OMG standard for EMF-based models.
Papyrus is a component of the Model Development Tools (MDT) subproject aiming at providing an integrated, user-consumable environment for editing any kind of EMF model and particularly supporting UML and related modeling languages such as SysML and MARTE.
SBVR provides a metamodel implementation and sample tools based on the adopted Semantics of Business Vocabulary and Business Rules (SBVR) OMG specification.
UML2 is an EMF-based implementation of the UMLTM 2.x metamodel for the Eclipse platform.
Some components are currently in their Validation (Incubation) Phase.
