[modeling-pmc] Re: Fwd: new project proposal

Mr. Wagner,
Have you discussed this new project with the Modeling PMC?  The reason I ask is that at Eclipse there are ten top-level projects, each of which covers a particular technical area. The Modeling Top-Level Project is, obviously, about modeling. The Modeling PMC (Project Management Committee) runs the Modeling Top-Level Project, and thus would be the obvious first place to start when wanting to start a new project in the modeling area.

I have cc'd their public mailing list on this reply.

Subject: new project proposal

Dear EMO,

I'd like to propose a new project as a subproject of
the Eclipse Model Development Tools (MDT) project.

The project would develop a UML-based rule modeling tool
based on a metamodel that we have developed in a EU research
project (REWERSE) and which you can find here:

The basic idea is to visually model derivation rules and
production rules in connection with their underlying
vocabulary expressed by a UML class diagram. Notice that
UML allows to express derivation rules textually in the form
of OCL derive expressions. But these expressions are not
visually connected to the model elements they refer to.
For production rules, as far as we know, there is no
support for UML-based modeling. The OMG has a new standard,
called PRR, which defines a metamodel for production
rules, with which we tried to be compatible.

We have developed a prototype of such a tool, called Strelka:

We'd like to contribute the metamodel and the tool prototype
to the new project.

Please let me know, if this is a suitable proposal for an
Eclipse project.

Best regards,
Gerd Wagner
