Arduino Designer: eine Eclipse-basierte Plattform für programmierenden Nachwuchs

Kinder sind von Natur aus neugierig: Sie erkunden, hinterfragen, wundern sich über Dinge – und lernen dabei. Spätestens ab dem Zeitpunkt ihrer Geburt beginnt dieser menschliche Lernprozess. Weckt eine neue Sache unsere Neugier, möchte man sie am liebsten sofort erkunden. Besonders gut geht das, wenn man selbst zum Entdecker wird, ausprobiert und dabei sowohl Erfolg als auch Fehlschläge erlebt. Nur so lernen Kinder den Zusammenhang von Ursachen und Wirkungen. Arduino Designer ist eine vereinfachte Eclipse-Entwicklungsplattform für den Arduino, die auf dem Eclipse-Projekt Sirius basiert und Kinder bei ihren ersten Gehversuchen in der Programmierung unterstützt.

January 10th, 2014 - New OpenSource components for a new year

Since many years, IFPEN (www.ifpen.fr) works with Obeo at the integration of the Eclipse modeling technologies in its Eclipse based scientific software platform.


This collaboration resulted in the creation of some modeling components built on the top of EMF. Since these components are generic and can be used by any EMF models consumers, IFPEN decided to free them.

We created an EclipseLabs project in order to share these components: IFPEN EMP Tooling
At the time being, 3 modules are hosted in the project:
Reverse module: a tool using the JDT to create a Ecore model representing the selected java code Filter: a tool allowing to filter a EMF model in order to limit an Acceleo generation Cuboid Modeler: a showcase for the EEF project. These modules are designed to be easy to use and to provide common needs encountered by many EMF users.

Feel free to use them, improve them or just give us feedback and Happy New Year!.

Sirius ist ein neues Eclipse-Projekt, mit dem Sie leicht Ihre eigenen grafischen Modellierungstools erstellen können. Es stützt sich auf die Eclipse-Modellierungstechniken einschließlich EMF für die Modellverwaltung und GMF für die grafische Darstellung. Basierend auf einem Viewpoint-Ansatz bietet sich Sirius für Teams an, die mit komplexen Architekturen in speziellen Bereichen zu tun haben. Insbesondere ist es geeignet, wenn Sie eine domänenspezifische Sprache (DSL, Domain Specific Language) definiert haben und grafische Darstellungen benötigen, um ein System besser auszuarbeiten und zu analysieren sowie die Kommunikation mit anderen Teammitgliedern, Partnern oder Kunden zu verbessern.

November 19th, 2013 - Eclipse @Devoxx

I'm back from a full week at Devoxx in Antwerpen- Belgium. I was there to present the Sirius project and
Eclipse Modeling at the Eclipse Foundation booth. (by the way, thanks again to the foundation staff !)
It was quite fun to be there with Jelena Alter, Marcel Bruch, Julien Vermillard and Gael Blondelle, we had a good mix of things : Marcel for the Java developpers with Code Recommender, Julien for M2M stuff (which was very hot at Devoxx this year) Jelena and Gael for the Eclipse Foundation itself and me with fancy graphical modelers.





Here are a few random notes :

The conference organization and setup is quite amazing. Wifi worked very well, the venue is a theather complex which means you always get to sit very confortably and the screens are just huge. There was some hacking spaces with peoples hanging there all the time, voting was easy thanks to a bunch of arduino modules installed in each room. Interactions were encouraged with tweets being displayed on every screen in between the sessions, "free to use" whiteboards were positionned in the hallway leading to some wild polls. I liked these small things which are triggering more involvement from the audience.

The content was good or very good in general but could not attend many sessions as I had many things going on at the booth too, but overall I was impressed. It's not perfect though, I had my share of "sexy looking talks" which did end up being very badly presented.

In the end I have seen only a few Java talks, many sessions were related to web dev, cloud, or the now famous "Internet of Things".




I was there as an Eclipse guy and believe me, the Eclipse hoodie is like a secret weapon to get to talk to pretty much any programming rock star. On the other hand there is this trend going on in the Java community about Eclipse being really bad compared to the competition which made me a bit reluctant first, will people attack me there ?

After speaking with many Java developpers during the conference here is my report : most of them are loving Eclipse, as an IDE.
Juno was a lot of pain though and they did not understood why it got released with such poor performances and behavior. They like Eclipse Kepler way better but it's still not exactly on par with what they used to expect, and they expect a lot from Luna, in particular :

Performances and responsivenessQuality and reliability, no more ui glitches in the workbench.Java 8 support.Maven integration (Many people have given up on this one starting from Juno...)
In the end the differences between the major IDEs are quite small and we have room for improvements in several points, but users have pain with IntelliJ too.

What about innovative features ? Actually Code Recommender in itself impressed many peoples, and the others could quite easily be impressed with features which have been around for years through specific plugins they did not knew about.

In a way that was kind of a relief for me to see that our work was not completely rejected by the community and that people could say things like: "Eclipse is the best for this, or that" (for instance having support for multiple languages in the same IDE).  Also, several sessions presenting very cool stuff that could not have existed without Eclipse.

The Crazyflie quadcopter is made with oss tools. Eclipse is one of those, kudos to the Eclipse community ! #devoxx now demo time

— Cédric Brun (@bruncedric) 13 Novembre 2013
But on the other hand it is very hype to reject and bash Eclipse when you want to brag as a speaker.

Of course it was also a great occasion try a few ideas discussed here and there lately. I realized that :

"Code Recommender" in itself makes people wanting to use Eclipse again for Java.most of them don't understand what they are downloading from Eclipse.org and the whole idea behind the release train. They could not really figure out which "thing" they should download between "Classic", "Java" or "JEE".most did tell me they downloaded "Eclipse" (which means, for instance, the Java package) and were surprised that it was not having the X or Y feature - which actually is part of the release train.  They just have no clue how to discover that.nobody wanted the "uber package" : that would make an un-usable IDE and they don't want feature they don't use to interact with others (and the bloat)the "let's display fake wizards which are provisionning the IDE on demand" was midly received. Most people I talked too want to be sure they won't need to install something more once they prepared their setup. a "configurator wizard" opening up the first time so that the developpers gets to pick what kind of langage support he wants, which SCM integrations, which bug tracker and so on, kinda excited the crowd. They see that as the perfect way to provision just the Eclipse they want withouth needing to figure out what all these weird feature names are meaning and knowing this is a selection of high quality plugins, all of them being open-source.only a few would be willing to pay for Eclipse, even if it is a special version, and even if it's a very low price. They are used to Eclipse being free and are more willing to click donate than to buy the binary. By the way, they feel like when they click on this donate bouton, they are already helping the development of Eclipse as an IDE.many features of Eclipse, even if they can be installed through the release train and can be usefull for a developper, are not known at all. (the configurator wizard could help here too). This is, again, probably the smallest effort on our side to have the highest impact.several were using Eclipse as a platform, to build applications or tools, and they could not find the same level of flexibility and extensibility in any other platform out there.

This is it for "Eclipse as an IDE". 

Regarding Sirius, I had very good feedback. People were either curious about it or left with the idea of trying it in their own context, which was more than I could expect from such a conference !

October 31st, 2013 - EclipseCon Europe 2013 Day 3: Light my Fire

image

Again a great day at Eclipsecon :)

Sirius BOF

imageI think that this was the most amazing BoF I ever saw at eclipsecon (and I’m not saying that because it was about Sirius ;): we add a lot of attendes, each of them coming with their own domain models (or a demo one) and trying to create modelers using Sirius. After 30 minutes, there were already some nice modelers going on, and although we started to hear the Eclipse band playing many people stayed for… more than 2 hours! I think almost everyone did manage to obtain a modeler and understand how Sirius works, mission accomplished :)

The night at the Nestor bar was amazing, the vibe was definitely good, and as always the Eclipse Fondation staff was warm and kind. That is why I did not manage to get up early enough to have the time to checkout and go to the keynote in time…

Scala IDE (Mirco Dotta)

How, that was an impressive talk. It convinced me that the barrier for using Scala has been blown up. Now you have tycho integration (just replace “java” by “scala” in your pom.xml), you can mix java and scala in the same project, you have a live interpreter to test your code… Really nice Eclipse integration. The killer feature for me was that you are now able to copy a java class, and when you paste it inside a Scala class the code is automatically (and smartly) converted to Scala.A great talk, and a great speaker. Of course there is still issues related to scala itself (the big VM for example), but Eclipse is ready for Scala.

Eclipse Diagram Editors (Jan Koehnlein)

image

John made us walk into the jungle of graphical modelers, pointing out all the limitations, mostly in regards to end-user interactions. Funny and interesting.

He worked on a prototype based on JavaFX with instant feedbacks, great layouting, live contextual menus, zoom in and out to navigate into new diagrams, movie, browser or forms live integration… This could be an awesome contribution to Sirius, so that your diagram can be renderred with GMF or JavaFX with the same Modeler Specification.

The end…

image By the way, Obeo guys gave interviews to InfoQ France that should soon be available :)

And that’s it for this EclipseCon Europe 2013! Great talks, great people, and many interesting discussions.As usual, I’ll end this post series in music, but this time is special for me as this song was made by my music band “Ignition”. Now that you met me, you know my name, so do not hesitate to spam me through twitter or the Mylyn Intent and Sirius forums. See you all at EclipseCon US 2013, already have some exciting talk ideas :)


October 30th, 2013 - EclipseCon Europe 2013 Day 2: Wonderland

image

Hi again! An intense day, as I was at the Sirius booth I did not attend all the talks I was planning to but here is a sum-up of what I saw. Quite a lot of impressing technologies today, the Oculus Rift was definitely an attractive attraction, a shame I did not have a chance to test it.

Scaling Pinterest (Marty Weiner)

Marty shared his experience in how to quickly make your software scalable. Pinterest, a web-platform, had only a few users and 3 developpers in March 2010 and gazillions of views every day in April 2012.

Lesson 1: It will fail, keep it simple. Avoid using many technologies you don’t fully master and keep your architecture as simple as possible.
Lesson 2 Choose your technology stack wisely to use technologies that are mature and wildly used by others:
- Does it meet your requirements?
- How mature is the product?
- Is it commonly used? Can you hire people who have used it?
Is the community active?
- How robust is it to failure?
- How well does it scale?
- Does it have a good debugging tool? A Profiler?
Is the cost justified?
Lesson 3: have fun (otherwise you’ll just jump out of the window)
Vert.x (Norman Maurer - Redhat)
Vert.x is:
- an asynchronous platform by nature
- with general prupose
- high performing
- Polyglot (you can write your app in different langages such as java, javascript, groovy, ruby, python, scala, closure and php)
- flexible
- Supported protocols: tcp, udp, http, https, websocket, sockjs…
It’s based on Netty. You can directly use netty for simple tasks.
Vertx is based on a thread-model: everything is executed in one single event-loop.  Any non-core feature is defined in a module. You can create your own modules and register to the module registry so that others can re-use them. A test framework is provided.
Here is a simple example allowing  read asynchronously in a queue:
public class Server extends Verticle { public void start() { Vert.eventbus().registerhandler("newfeed",new Handler<HttpServerRequest>() { public void handle(HttpServerRequest req) { System.out.println("hello"). } }).listen(8080); }); }
Simple and easy to read. The first milestone inside eclipse has just be released. Definetelly good stuff, I’ll give it a try home.
Markus shared his experience as the lead of the EPP (Eclipse Packaging Project) through the 8 last releases of Eclipse.
Eclipse has gone a long way since the Galileo release (10 projects) to the Kepler release (70 projects). As I already handle the participation of Mylyn Intent (and now Sirius) inside the Eclipse Release Train, I did not learn much here, but I hope that newcommers were interested in seing behind the scene of the Eclipse releases.

EMF ‘n’ Compare: Rescue Rangers (Mikael Barbero)

Mikael took us to a journey in Model comparaisons, showing how can EMFCompare compare, detect conflicts and merge your models.Based on day-to-day use cases, the talk was composed of 3 demos:

1. Comparaison of 2 ant files. We discovered:- how can EMF Compare be automatically plugged to detect differences in XML files in a nice graphical way, instead of having to handle text comparaisons. Everything is integrated in the Eclipse Team Provider UI.- With the appropriate EMF bridge allowing us to raise the level of abstraction (and define concepts like targets, imports…)., the differences are way easier to understand as they use semantic concepts.

2. Detect binary compatibility breaks in our Java code. It would be great to have a tool allowing to compare 2 snapshot of a java code and detect only API breaks. With the appriorate EMF Bridge allowing to represent java projects as models, EMF Compare allows us to provide custom filters through extension points. Here we use a filter that only shows all the changes that actually break the API. I did like that Mikael did not just show an end-user demo, but actually taught us how to implement such filters through EMF Compare API.

3. Incremental transformationWe often define transformations on our models (for instance to transform our business model in a Database-oriented model).Mikael showed us how can we use EMFCompare API to define incremental transformations so that if you convert a business model B1 into a database model DB1, if you modify B1 you don’t have to relaunch all the comparaison but smartly transform only the elements that have not been created in DB1. Smart, efficient, and a good way to show how can we use EMFCompare API in standalone programs.But we still have a lot of corner cases (rename table keys when renamming the table…). Moreover, the database model may not be the direct result of a transformation (if users directly edit this database model).That is when conflict comparaison comes into play.

Mikael concluded by showing another example of customization that we can bring to EMFCompare (such as filters): the graphical comparaison.One of the EMFCompare bridges provide new graphical viewers to see the changes you made on Papyrus diagrams directly on the diagram viewers and not from a tree view. The audience was impressed :) Very interesting Q&A afterward, to sum up it was a great talk.

Statisfy your Requirements - Before your even know you have them (Eike Stepper) Eike is known to make great talks. It was the case that time too :)After having created a Metamodel according to a fake customer needs, Eike listed 10 reasons for which we were not quite ready to deliver, and for which CDO provides answers (I regrouped some of them):1. Persistence: CDO allows to store your models inside a database (of course the physical back-end technology is up to you: PostgreSQL, MySQL, DB4O, MongoDB…). CDO is compatible with several protocols so that your application can “talk” with the CDO Server (tcp, http).2. Transactions: CDO makes sure that all your model modifications occur in ACID transactions. If all your changes are accepted then they can be committed, otherwise you cannot commit a partial and invalid set of modifications.3. Collaboration: CDO provides a real-time notifications mechanism, so that when some user saves changes he made on a model element, all the other clients manipulating that element can be notified & updated in real-time. Of course there is a conflict resolution mechanism.4. Scalability: CDO provides Data Transfert Objects allowign to get rid of the strong references between model elements. This allows to garbage collect EMF objects and hence handle big models. Eike demonstrated this with a nice graph showing the objects loaded in memory, nice and clear.5. Thread safety: EMF is not thread-safe, which can be annoying if you want to do parrallel processes. CDO solves this by allowing you to open a transaction for each thread, which is cheap as all the Data Transfert Objects are shared by all transactions if identical.6. Auditing: CDO provides API allowing you to open “Audit Views”, i.e. a read-only vision of your model as it was at a certain date/commit. Eike made a demo with a slider allowing to go back in time and see the model state, Greater gods!7. Role-based security: I’ll not enter in details here as I coverred this topic yesterday.8. Fault Tolerance/Offline availability: if your connection with the server fails, CDO provides an offline mode support, allowing you to continue working, and commit the changes whenever the master Server is available again.Interesting Q&A, that allowed us to talk about the Query mechanism (to quickly query your whole database in OCL, SQL or your owns Query handlers).

I’m damn proud of being a commiter on this awesome projects, and hope that I’ll help make it even better in the future :)

Sirius by Example (Stephane Bonnet, Pierre-Charles David, me)

The talk went well, I invite you to read the slides and visit Sirius website if you want more news about this new awesome eclipse project :)

October 29th, 2013 - EclipseCon Europe 2013 Day 1: Cat Attaks

What a great day ! Sorry if this post is harder to read than usual, I did not have time to write it during the talks so I have to use my notes. I’ll try to do better tomorrow.

Single Points of Failure: The Human Element of Software Engineering (Brian Fitzpatrick)

After warm applauses to celebrate Ed Merk’s brithday, Brian gave us one of the best keynote we ever had at Eclipse Con. This is definitely in my top 3 with the EclipseCon France keynotes.

It started with a quote that well sums up the talk: "Engineering is easy, people are hard". Although most of us has spent 5 to 8 years learning computer science, we haven’t spend one single minute to learn how to work with others. That’s why we spend most of our time yelling and complaining, instead of doing what we like. By working on humility, respect and trust, one could really improve his work conditions.

One of our biggest issue is the genius myth: most of us want to be seen as smart, because we want to look like our idols (so true, for me that would be Donald Knuth or Bret Viktor ^^). There is no genius (well or maybe once every century). So this attitude only produces insecurity and inhibits progress because you’re so afraid of making it wrong. I think Biran got me when he quoted Tylor Durden :  You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You’re the same decaying organic matter as everything else.
Then Brian defined the Bus factor principle, which is the number of people in your project that can be hit by a bus before your project collapses. Lose your individual ego, it won’t get you anywhere. What is important on the other hand is to have a strong team ego: be proud and be demanding of what your team produces, . Don’t erase your failures, document them.
Brian made us laugh with many stories, I loved that one : 
A manager loses 10 millions $ in one day. Then he gets to his office, prepares his demission letter. When called inside his CEO office, he gives the letter. The CEO reads it, and say “Why? I’ve juste spent 10 grounds forming you!”.
Don’t destroy bad habits, replace them with something better.
Really a great keynote, with many concrete advices I’ll definetely apply at home.

I did not attend Melanie’s Talk but so many people were talking about it that I at least have to put a picture :) She demonstrated how can Eclipse Sirius be used to define easy-to-access modelers to program a cat robot using arduino. The talk was definitely a success and you’ll probably have a chance to see it in future Eclipse events.
Due to the diversity of the persons (developers, designers, managers) and the artifacts (code, doc, test, bugtracker issues, builds…) involved in a software lifecycle, everyone uses different tools to handle related information. Lean/agile development is ony lean/agile if it is handled from end to end. Managing information in a spreadsheet somewhere in the chain and you’ll fail.
Thanks to the continuous integration & devops, we are now able to have a lean development on the software assets. But for the other artifacts, we need a software lifecycle integration (SLI) to link all this information. A good example is the gerrit mechanism in eclipse, in which hudson builds, reviewers and commiters can communicate very quickly and fail as early as possible. A similar mechanism must be made for scrum masters, managers… Federating is the keyword : find a common representation(model) to represent ALM information. Interesting talk, but I want to get more details about what’s planning for Mylyn 2.0.
Well the least we can say is that many cool stuff are coming in EGit. I personnaly use the command line, but that talk convinced me to give Egit a try. 
Egit 3.0 (June 2013) provides new merge options, rename detection, and the possibility to use expressions (head..3, commit id…) to reset.
Egit 3.1 (September 2013) provides new presentation modes in the staging area (tree, list) and filters. There’s also an interactive conflict resolution during rebase, and the integration with emf compare for models, 3 way compare and mylyn links in history & staging view.
Egit 3.2 (December 2013) will provide a lot of new features like
push branches (equivalent git push -u) and push tags wizards interactive rebase support, search for commits in the history view,  Merge drivers: binary & model-base merge drivers will be added to the text-based merge driver Support for HTTP

There are also a lot of performance improvements (like the clone and fetch operations which went from 60s to less than 80ms thanks to the use of bitmap indexes to reduce the “counting” phase).

The demo of these new features was really impressive: “compact tree” view, filtering, additonal Drag and Drop support to open files, completion showing previous messages and impacted files, interactive add… make rebase operations and staging area manipulation way easier.

Graphical interactive rebase, although still a work in progress, is clearly impressive ! It has all the feature you could expect (skip, edit, squash…). Just select the commits you want to rebase interactively, click on interactive rebase, open the new git interactive rebase view, use UI tod ecide what you want to do with each commit and just press start. Convenient!

Just to let you know that we’ll put the slides of our talk tonight. The talk went well, I’ll let you read the slides and ask questions if you’re interested.
Modeling Symposium
Always a good place to discuss with modeling enthusiasts. Many projects were presented (EMF Client Platform, EMF Rest, EFactory 2 - based on Xtext, OCL…). Eike Stepper presented the new Role-based security model provided by CDO 4.3. It allows the definition of fine-grained access rules on your CDO repository. For instance you can easilly forbid one user to have WRITE access on any element of a specific type. Cool stuff ! 
Sirius Booth

This year is particulalry busy as we also have to be at the Sirius Booth. Many many people interested in this new eclipse project, hope to see you all at the Sirius talks and especially at the Sirius BoF, were you will be able to build YOUR modelers for your needs with the help of the team :) 
I also had passionated discussions with Mylyn Intent enthusiasts, many exciting things should arrise in the Eclipse Luna release :)
Well that’s it for today, see you tomorrow! And as always, please do not hesitate to stop me and have a chat :)


October 29th, 2013 - EclipseCon Europe 2013 Begins - Walk on the wild side

Hi guys !

Today starts the EclipseCon Europe 2013, plenty of exciting talks & events planned, as usual I’ll try to sum it up with day-by-day reports.

This EclipseCon will definitely be the chance to take a walk on the wild side of Eclipse projects, with the first release of Eclipse Sirius, new major versions of awesome projects like Code Recommenders, tutorials and of course the BoFs which remain my favorite event as we actually can annoy the commiters of our favorite projects with our ideas. By the way, we’re giving a “hands-on” Sirius BoF tomorrow, come with your business model and leave with awesome graphical modelers for it! It’s been 2 years now that we have started this concept for companies, I’m really excited to see what the community will do with Sirius.

Stay in tuch to get fresh news about the conference :)


October 25th, 2013 - Launching Sirius

October 25th, 2013 - Eclipse Sirius, graphical modeling now available to everyone

Eclipse Sirius, graphical modeling now available to everyone

After months of an intensive work, Obeo is pleased to announce the release of the highly anticipated Sirius project. This will be a significant event at the EclipseCon Europe conference from October 29 to 31.

Sirius in a few words

Sirius allows you to create a model and to represent information in a visual way.

A modeling workbench designed with Sirius provides a set of graphical editors (diagrams, tables, trees) to visualize and edit models from the Eclipse environment. The creation of this workbench is greatly facilitated by the ability to test the configuration instantly. This allows to quickly create an environment fully dedicated to the users' business domain.

Sirius is the result of a collaboration initiated in 2007, when Thales wished a modeling workbench to support their system engineering process. Thales called on Obeo's services to develop a viewpoint technology for modeling, integrating strong requirements in terms of ergonomics, performance, robustness and personalization capacity.

Sirius is included in Obeo Designer product and has been widely deployed within the Thales Group, it is a key component in creating models and mastering the complexity of big systems in numerous domains: aeronautics, space, transport, energy, information systems, etc.

Why Open Source?

Open Source is part of Obeo's DNA: by releasing Acceleo source code, by becoming a strategic member of the Eclipse Foundation, Obeo has largely contributed to generalizing model-based approach and is a key player in the Eclipse Open Source community. Sirius project falls within a continuing open source process initiated over than 8 years ago.

By releasing Sirius, Thales and Obeo are pursuing three main objectives:

  • Strengthening the Eclipse Modeling ecosystem by providing a mature and leading modeling technology.
  • Placing Sirius in a long-term substainability initiative in order to help big companies to support strategic uses.
  • Encouraging potential collaborations with other partners in an open and easy to access environment.

In order to accompany and secure the most stringent deployments of the Sirius technology, Obeo offers a set of business solutions that contain:

  • Support and maintenance on a packaged bundle of Open Source components integrating Sirius.
  • Advanced support for collaborative modeling.

The Sirius roadmap

The first release 0.9 of Sirius will be available in November meaning that the full migration to the Eclipse.org infrastructure will be completed. It will allow to define EMF models editors for tables, trees and diagrams.

Sirius 1.0 will be available in June 2014 and will be part of Luna, the next simultaneous release of Eclipse platform.

Sirius 1.0 will also be supported by Obeo Designer 7.0 in June 2014 and Obeo will provide migra-tion assistance solutions.

To learn more

To discover Sirius and to get a pre-version, please visit the Eclipse Sirius website.

The Sirius release will be also a major event at the EclipseCon Europe conference, from October 29 to 31 in Germany. Obeo will be there to present Sirius, with a booth, a hands-on session and 4 talks:

  • Sirius By Example: Build Your Own Diagram, Table and Tree Editors in 20 Minutes (with Thales)
  • Sirius: Changing the Game of Systems Architecture
  • Turning Eclipse into an Arduino programming platform for kids
  • EcoreTools 2.0: The Making-Of
