I am very much interested in the project but am not really sure how far along it is. Can someone explain the usability of Papyrus? First off let me state that I am an architect, as in I build buildings not software. But I also use code to generate form and solve automation problems. I am interested in UML as it is a visual design tool, something architects and designers are very familiar with. I have experience with ArgoUML and Enterprise Architect, but have recently come across this platform and would like to possible stick with it as a solution, however I cannot seem to get a general sense of the usability as a simple UML modeler.

If it is mature and usable can someone point me to the very basic tutorials?

regards,

Joel

Hi Joel,

from my point of view (I'm a UML purist and work with Papyrus since its very
first relaunch under the Eclipse umbrella), Papyrus is a great tool with a
great foundation. What do I mean with foundation? Well, the Papyrus MDT aims
at providing the foundation for two modlling tools: Papyrus itself and
TOPCASED. TOPCASED is a very mature editor (freely available) with a much
more sophisticated tooling beside the plain drawing capabilities. Most
important, TOPCASED is already used by many companies in the safety-critical
domain - Aerospace, Transport, Automotive etc. The fact that Papyrus now
serves as the drawing foundation for TOPCASED clearly indicates that Papyrus
will be the tool for the future in the realm of GMF-based modeling.

There are, of course, other tools already available on the market which are
more stable than Papyrus, but Papyrus gradually matures from version to
version. And Papyrus has a great version and roadmap. I'm really convinced
of Papyrus and would definitely recommend to you in your case.
