Hello,
I think Sirius is a very good tool for creating models. I am wondering has anyone done any investigation on managing version control of models created from within Sirius. Perhaps this could be done with EMFStore (version control for EMF models) or Git ,maybe EMFCompare could be useful for comparing versions?
Thanks,
Neil

I'm not sure to understand what is really your question?

You can store your models and associated representations file in GIT
(this is done for data of Sirius tests for example [1]).

The representations file (aird model) are EMF models. So yes, they can
be compared with EMFCompare ...

Thanks for your response.
As I understand it Sirius allows you to create modeling tools (for creating model instances in a specific domain), and then use those modeling tools. Using the modeling tool helps users visually create model instances which are stored as XMI files. When using the created modelling tool it would be nice if there were some features to assist users in collaborating in making the model instances. For example in Eclipse Client Platform with EMFstore it is possible when visually creating a XMI file to commit, or update, or create a branch from within the tool (similar to subversion, but focused on EMF models as opposed to text).
It would be a nice feature (although perhaps not easy to do!) if the modelling tools created with Sirius could have some feature which helped with version control of the created XMI file (such as commit\update\compare\show history etc).
I could be wrong, but it seems to me that the domain specific modeling tools created using sirius are focused on the single user (with collaboration left to tools outside of the application), whereas some features to create domain specific modelling tools which are collaborative would be very nice...perhaps people have looked at this already or have common ways to deal with collaborating on XMI models created with sirius.

Thanks,
Neil

Hello,

Indeed there is a collaborative component for Sirius as presented in a
previous post [1]. There is a free evaluation version[2] if you are
interested in testing it.

Regards,
Steve
