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



Yes, the scope of MDT is limited to “industry standard” (but not necessarily OMG) metamodels. If there are concrete plans for your metamodel to be submitted as a response to an OMG RFP (i.e. it will eventually become a specification), then that may well work (it won’t be a whole lot different from what we’re doing with the recently approved IMM component)… but we should discuss this in more detail when we chat. What day/time would be good for you?

thanks for your message.


I'd be happy to participate in the call and present our rule modeling proposal.


For clarifying if the proposal fits the scope and rules of MDT I'd like to ask if it is a strict requirement for a MDT modeling tool to be based on an OMG recommended metamodel?


We plan to intitiate an OMG RFP for rule modeling, but currently the metamodel we'd like to contribute is not (yet) an OMG standard.

I am the lead of the MDT sub-project of Modeling; thanks for your interest in contributing to the project!


Typically, when proposing new components within Modeling (see for an overview of the current process), the first step is to present the proposal at the Modeling PMC meeting, which takes place on the third Tuesday of each month at 10:00 am EST. I’d be happy to add your proposal to the agenda for February 19 if you think you will be able to participate in the call. In the meantime, it would probably make sense for the two of us to discuss your proposed contribution in more detail to ensure that it fits within the scope of MDT.

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
