Acceleo.org was created many years ago outside of Eclipse... We created a real open source community around this Code Generation tool, with a public repository, a website, a wiki, a mailing list, a newsgroup, and an aggregation of blogs like the planet Eclipse one. Acceleo project won the Eclipse Award in the category "Best Open Source Eclipse-Based Developer Tool" rewarding several years of work of the Acceleo community to produce one of the best tool for model driven development.

As the time goes, the Team has been more and more convinced that the MOF Model To Text OMG specification was the way to go for the project and as we started to code we decided to move within the Eclipse M2T project changing the syntax to conform to the standard but keeping the spirit and pragmatism we had for Acceleo.org. We had our first stable release for the Galileo train, are planning to maintain the Acceleo.org implementation for years but the next generation Acceleo will be perfectly ready for the next Eclipse simultaneous release (Helios).

We are confident that the Acceleo community is gaining value from moving to a self hosted project to an Eclipse one, and that end users will follow the transfert from Acceleo.org to Eclipse.org but such a move has impacts, both from a technical and community point of view : this talk will focus on those impacts, describing the change between both projects and providing experience feedback : Why did the project moved? How? What are the benefits for the Acceleo community and for the modeling project? What have been the community constraints? How to handle, technically, this kind of move ? What does moving to an OMG standard implementation mean for the users ?

This talk will tackle all those issues while demonstrating changes through demos.
