Project Plan For EATOP [archived], version 0.5.0


EATOP is an open source project under the Eclipse Modeling project to provide an infrastructure platform implementation of common base functionality for design tools that enable an effective usage of the architecture description language EAST-ADL in software and systems development.

This document lays out the feature and API set for the EATOP release 0.5.0. Comments on this plan can be can be posted on the forum or sent to the mailing list .

Release Deliverables

This release will be delivered via a p2 repository including SDK (runtime, sources and documentation), non-SDK (runtime only), examples and test utilities.

Target Environments

The EATOP 0.5 targets a defined set of other Eclipse components (e.g. platform, EMF, etc.) originating from the following release trains:

  • Kepler (Eclipse 4.3)
  • Luna (Eclipse 4.4)

EATOP builds and testing will always be based on latest available milestone build or service release of Eclipse (e.g. Eclipse 4.4M3, 4.4.1).

EATOP will work with Java 6 or higher.


The EATOP plug-ins are prepared for internalization using the usual Eclipse mechanism. Default language is English. Currently no other translations exist.
