The SCA Tools project provides a set of tools for the Service Component Architecture (SCA) set of standards:
- The SCA Meta Model, an extensible EMF meta model based on the SCA specifications version 1.0 proposed by the Open SOA consortium + an extension for Tuscany + an extension for FraSCAti.
- The SCA Composite Designer, a graphical (GMF) development environment for the construction of composite applications (see figure below).
- The SCA XML Editor for composite and componentType files.
- The SCA Form Editor, an editor based on Eclipse forms for SCA assembly files.
- The SCA Builder to validate SCA artifacts.
- The SCA Launcher to run and debug SCA Java projects on SCA platforms from Eclipse.
- The SCA Composite to Java Generator to generate Java code skeletons from an SCA composite.
- The SCA Composite Introspection tool to construct SCA assembly files in a bottom-up approach from existing POJO and component type files.
- The SCA Semantics tool to annotate components, services, and references with SAWSDL.
- The SCA Samples, a set of ready to use SCA projects to discover SCA and the SCA tools.
