Re: [mdt.dev] [modeling-dev] [uml2-dev] Mylyn Context Bridge / Request for large models
I was reading your project description: "In order to bring the
productivity benefits of the task-focused interface to engineers using
Eclipse-based modeling technologies, Tasktop will create a “Context
Bridge” for EMF-based models and diagram editors. The result of this
will be a focused mode for diagrams that shows only the elements
related to the task-at-hand, dramatically reducing information overload
for engineers working on large models"
I don't really understand because in UML you can already create
views which will only display relevant UML information coming from
large models. Just drag and drop or use a contextual menu in order to
select relevant UML elements and it is displayed immediately in a new
Did I miss something ?

Please see http://wiki.eclipse.org/Mylyn/Modeling_Bridge
for more but the basic idea is that you will be able to get
task-focussed slices of an EMF or UML model in the same way that Mylyn
gives you task contextualized focus for your overall workspace. The
idea is to support those larger models that are difficult to grok and
work with all at once. See David Green's blog from a couple of years
back for more on the basic idea. http://greensopinion.blogspot.com/2008/12/mylyn-context-driven-domain-diagram.html
huh? There are a lot of challenges involved and I'll be posting on the
forums or dev-lists as appropriate to let people know as the
functionality gets into place, but I wanted to see if there were other
folks out there interested in the approach and who'd like to share
ideas or kick the tires. I think Papyrus folks might be particularly
One this I could really use are large public (i.e. no
confidentiality issues) EMF / UML models for design targets and demos.
Any source or ideas for larger models would be appreciated.
