Hi all,
I'm very interested by the approach proposed by MWE. It would permit us to easily deliver and reuse elementary generators/transformations in an industrial context (command line) without having to develop/test tons of java code for each new workflow (which is often longer to write than the transformation itself...).

However, before deploying tools in a production context relying on this solution, I'd like to be sure of the durability of this project.

For instance the roadmap presented in the wiki does not seem up to date (last mileston on 2008-08-01).

Is it planned that MWE continues to evolve and switch from incubation to official project?

Thanks in advance,
Best regards,

Sebastien Revol

Hi Sebastien,

MWE is used in Xpand and Xtext and we've just started to work on a new
syntax for the MWE configuration file (based on Xtext).
To answer your question: The project is active, used and maintained.

For Helios we of course fix any serious bugs and as said we plan to come
up with better tooling, Xtext based language infrastructure and a more
lightweight runtime.

Best regards,
Sven
