Transcript

  • 1. Model2Roo: Web ApplicationDevelopment based on the EclipseModeling Framework and Spring RooJuan Castrejón, Genoveva Vargas-Solar, Rafael LozanoUniversity of Grenoble, CNRS, Tecnológico de MonterreyACME 2012
  • 2. 2Background•  First version of the project presented in early 2011 Google Code Project Conference Paper http://code.google.com/p/model2roo http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/CONIELECOMP.2011.5749344
  • 3. 3Objective•  Generate web applications, by transforming Class diagrams into Spring Roo commandsEcore, UML2 ATL Queries Spring Roo commandsSpring Roo details:Ecore Annotations, UML Profiles
  • 4. 4Related work•  Web application development based on MDE techniques is a widely studied topic •  Web Modeling Language (WebML), WebRatio •  UWE approach •  Acceleo generators•  However, Model2Roo provides an association to modern development tools, through the Spring Roo project •  Spring Roo is responsible for the actual code generation •  Access to a wide variety of SpringSource projects
  • 5. 5User-identified issues1.  Insufficient support for graphical environments •  Limited support for complex UML editors, such as Papyrus •  Limited support for numeric data types2.  Basic edition of Spring Roo properties •  Spring Roo properties could only be set as free text •  Users were required to know the domains for each property3.  Troublesome installation procedure •  Tool deployed as a single plugin file •  Manual installation of the required dependencies (ATL, Papyrus)
  • 6. 6Technical issues1.  Maintenance of ATL queries •  Not a standard Model-To-Text specification2.  Output Spring Roo commands into a file •  ATL was designed primarily for M2M not for M2T •  In order to generate files, we had to modify ATL loggers •  Not an elegant solution, prone to subtle errors3.  Invocation of ATL queries from Eclipse plugin •  Limited documentation
  • 7. 7Recent improvements1.  Transformations implemented as Acceleo templates •  Standard notation (MOFM2T) •  Powerful syntax editors •  Automatic generation of UI Launcher projects (Eclipse plugin)2.  Improved edition of Spring Roo properties •  Full support for Papyrus profiles (UML) •  Properties domains are specified in the UML profiles •  Fixed support for Ecore Annotations3.  Improved installation procedure •  Eclipse update site containing all required dependencies
  • 8. 8 UMLProfile
  • 9. 9 What do we use it for? 1.  Generate test scenarios Architecture recovery and verification Web2MexADLhttp://code.google.com/p/web2mexadl MexADL http://code.google.com/p/mexadl MVC Analyzerhttp://code.google.com/p/mvc-analyzer 2.  Research prototypes Data Storage Instance Model Bus Model-Driven Cloud Data Storage http://code.google.com/p/instance-model-bus http://code.google.com/p/modesto
