Eclipse new project proposal

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

This is to announce that we have submitted GenGMF as new project proposal under the hood of the Graphical Modeling Project (GMP) which is currently in it’s creation process due to the GMF project restructuring.

You are welcome to discuss the proposal in the GMF newsgroup. When creating a new thread please prefix the subject with “[GenGMF]”.

New Version 2.1.1

Saturday, March 13th, 2010

You will find a new Version 2.1.1 which is compatible to Eclipse 3.5 / Galileo on the update site. We have replaced the dependency to openArchitectureWare with the Eclipse Xtend counterpart. Have a look at the Transformators page because there is a new StaticTextTransformator. The Wizards have been improved and so on… It is worth upgrading!

The current stable version of Epsilon seems to be a bit buggy. Please use the version which is available from SVN or the interim update site.

Introducing myself – Attila Bak

Monday, December 14th, 2009


My name is Attila Bak and i have decided to support the GenGMF project because i think having an easy-to-understand, configurable generation tool for GMF is really challenging and GenGMF tackles this problem in an elegant way with oAW transformations.

To myself: I have been commiting into the Fornax oAW projects and TextUML for some time now and am an oAW fan. I am relatively new to GMF but hope to get deeper understanding soon and contribute as much as possible to this project.



All good things are three…

Welcome Attila!

Eclipse magazin articles as PDF

Friday, December 11th, 2009

I’ve got the permission from the publisher to put both German articles as PDF online.

The first part (issue 4.2009, p.48) of the article series is about Templates, Descriptors and how to create them using Wizards.

In the second part (issue 5.2009, p.84) the focus is on Compartments as well as Transformators to give the nodes and edges a specific outfit.

Eclipse-Magazin article – CD supplement

After publishing the articles Attila (thanks for reporting) found out that the demo supplement has not been distributed on the CD as part of the magazine. So here it comes for the first article:

The plug-in to go through the article and the completed version.

Introducing myself – Martin Flügge

Friday, July 10th, 2009

I just finished my studies and will soon start with my Ph.D. reseraches. During my diploma-thesis I developed an collaborative extension for GMF-editor to allow graphical shared-editing in GMF including conflict handling, authentification/authorisation, offline-mode etc. This thesis lead to the open source project Dawn

Although I digged deep into the code of GMF and did not work extensively with the diagram creation aspects of GMF I found it sometimes very uncomfortable to handle even a small number of figure descriptors. To improve this situation I decided to support the GenGMF project.

Welcome Martin

I would like to welcome Martin Flügge as new developer! Maybe he will introduce himself. 😉

Eclipse Magazin article

In the Eclipse Magazin (German) is an article (p.48) which introduces GenGMF and the new Wizards. It’s worth reading!

New Major Version 2.0

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

After a long time the new version 2.0 is ready and published now. There are a lot of new features but the most important one is: Wizards. They could be used to create new graphical editors based on an existent metamodel within a few minutes. If you have an prior 2.0 GenGMF model you could migrate it using the GenGMF Migrator which could be separately installed using the update site. Because I am using the COPE framework for the migration I have to stick to Eclipse 3.4.

Please give me some feedback via the comments feature.
