As usual there's a lot on offer in the Eclipse Foundation's annual "release train". Following its alphabetic convention, this year’s collection of simultaneous releases of of open source tools starts with the letter L. Luna has new releases of over 70 participating projects including eight that are new.

Sirius 1.0.0, which enables the specification of a modeling workbench in terms of graphical, table or tree editors with validation rules and actions using declarative descriptions, is one that deserves attention. Once completed, the modeling workbench can be deployed as a standard Eclipse plugin.

Initially developed by Thales as an internal component and deployed in other organizations as part of the Obeo Designer product, the open source project has been supported by Obeo.  The project provides a runtime and the associated tools required to describe, test, and distribute modeling workbenches on top of the Eclipse platform.

Sirius provides developers with:

 

  • The ability to define workbenches providing editors including diagrams, tables or trees.

  • The ability to integrate and deploy them into Eclipse IDE’s or RCP applications.

  • The ability to customize existing environments by specialization and extension.

  • Rich and specialized modeling editors to design their models.

  • Synchronization between these different editors.

Sirius is also available for Kepler and can be installed from the Eclipse Marketplace.
