The Butterfly XML Editor and IDE is an XML editing environment built on top of a real-time incremental XML parsing algorithm. It features syntax and error highlighting, incremental validation, intelligent code completion (based on XML Schema, DTD, or document analysis), XSLT Debugging, XSLT pipelines, Docbook Rendering, XSL:FO Rendering, and side-by-side DOM and source viewing. Built-in support for Docbook, XSL:FO, XHTML, XSL, Xforms, XML Schemas, XSP, and Cocoon sitemaps is included. Support for other XML types can also easily be added. It is capable of parsing documents that are not well-formed, and shows the source of the errors, allowing for the easy conversion of HTML to well-formed XML. XSLT pipelines simplify the process of building up and visualizing complex transformations.
FireAnt is an Eclipse plugin for modeling complex remote deployment and configuration processes for EJBs. It allows developers to model the deployment and execution of groups of packages and configuration scripts on remote targets. After modeling a deployment plan, FireAnt's runtime infrastructure SSHs into each target, copies over the specified files, deploys the EJBs and Webapps, runs any required deployment scripts, and then cleans the staging environment.
The Generic Eclipse Modeling System (GEMS) is a MDD tool for Eclipse that allows for the rapid development of visual modeling tools for Eclipse based on EMF/GEF. Developers specify the rules for a domain language using a metamodel and the tool generates a diagram editor plugin that enforces the rules from the metamodel. Interpreters can then be written to traverse the model and generate code, perform analyses, or execute the model. The tool supports complex model analysis using Prolog; Java, OCL, and Prolog constraints, remote model updating via CORBA, applying CSS styles to models, model-to-model linking, exportable templates, and more.
GEMS EMF Intelligence is a framework designed to help you reason about your EMF models. The framework provides a knowledge base that you can assert EMF modeling elements into. Once modeling elements are asserted into the knowledge base, you can add constraints to relationships between model elements. Finally, you can use GEMS EMF Intelligence to derive valid endpoints (other objects in the knowledge base) for relationships (such as EReferences) of a modeling element. GEMS EMF Intelligence supports constraints written in OCL, Prolog, Groovy, and BeanShell. Multiple constraint languages can be mixed in a single knowledge base.
