We are interested at WindRiver.
I’m going to mark Aug 20 in my calendar.
Our main interest is scripting on a very very coarse granularity: simple UI commands such as “open-view xxx” , “open-perspective yyy” as well as project model commands such as “create-project
x,y,z” . It’s designed for interactive use, as well as mini-scripts that automate interactive use. Commands need to be executed either from inside Eclipse or from a network connection (ie script running outside Eclipse).
We have implemented a proof-of-concept from scratch, which I could demo in a meeting if there is interest. Compared to Monkey, I think our DOM’s are simpler since designed for interactive
use, and simple sequential operations more than elaborate scripting. The “new” capability is the remote access, currently via simple JSON TCP/IP but we’re also looking at TCF for the communication. The remote capability is interesting since it allows for very
simple integrations with command-line tools.
More details on the call (I’m going to be out of office next week),

An essential piece of TOPCASED modelling environment is the scripting engine, used by model designers to automate some project-specific
or boring activities like modifying the font of some elements in all diagrams. As described on the Scripting wiki, it is heavily based on EclipseMonkey and PythonMonkey, adding mainly some DOM to make model scripting easier and some related example scripts.
We are now about to start the migration of the major components of TOPCASED to Eclipse and PolarSys, including the scripting feature:
I think it is a chance to revive the Eclipse scripting project. It also means that it is the moment to discuss and decide project organization, functional/technical needs and architecture.
So the question is: beyond ATOS and AIRBUS, directly involved in this part of TOPCASED migration, who is interested in resurrecting
the scripting project at Eclipse and participating as a committer or contributor? As our deadline for the migration is October/December 2013, we need to start very soon: I would therefore like to organize a telcon with most interested parties around August
20th to initiate the process. Meanwhile, it would be great if you could expose your vision, proposals and potential involvement on this mailing list.
Of course, Arthur Daussy (ATOS) and I would be pleased to answer the questions you may have
