We are happy to announce the release of Eclipse Vorto 0.9. It is available on Github.
Code Generator API
Vorto is an open source tool that allows to create and manage technology agnostic, abstract device descriptions, so called information models. Information models describe the attributes and the capabilities of real world devices. These information models can be managed and shared within the Vorto Information Model Repository. Code Generators for Information Models let you integrate devices into different platforms.
The IoT Tool Set lets Device Manufacturers to describe the devices using Information Models in a textual DSL editor. The editor provides several features e.g. auto completion, syntax highlighting, and content assistance.
Code generators allow Solution developers to create information model based code artifacts that can be employed in specific solutions. Vorto provides wizards supporting the creation of new code generators.
The Vorto IoT toolset allows to comfortably create abstract, technology agnostic descriptions of devices. These descriptions are machine readable and thus can be transformed into formats that are required for an integration into a specific platform. By providing such device descriptions a device vendor allows an easy integration of devices into platforms for which Vorto code generators exist.
Vorto code generator which allows to transform Vorto device descriptions (so called information models) into formats that are required for an integration into a specific platform. After such a code generator is implemented it is very easy to integrate devices using Information Models that are available within the Vorto repository.
Solution developers that integrate devices into specific platforms often have to write a lot of code that could be generated using information about the corresponding device. The Vorto code generator infrastructure allows to do that which results in a significant reduction of development efforts.
