Eclipse Plugin

Postby Guest » Wed Jun 25, 2003 2:03 pm

Hi,

I would like to bring up the "Poseidon as an Eclipse plugin" issue again.

There are several Eclipse plugins for UML, but in our opinion they all have one or more disadvantages when compared to Poseidon:

Together/WSE:
(-) quite expensive
(-) needs IBM WSAD (at least to my knowdledge)
(-) eats large chunks of memory
(-) real two way, the code is always in sync with the model, but you cannot switch off this feature (we need this since we want to work with AndroMDA)

EclipseUML:
(-) development in early stage when compared to Together / Poseidon
(-) still quite a number of bugs
(-) real two way, the code is always in sync with the model, but you cannot switch off this feature (we need this since we want to work with AndroMDA)

If Poseidon would be available as a real Eclipse plugin (GUI in SWT, please), then it'd be a real killer.

One aditional important point: running Poseidon externally consumes extra memory footprint, since it is run in a dedicated VM. When running in Eclipse, the memory footprint of one VM could be saved.

Greetings from Hamburg,
Peter

Well, thanks for the requirements list - a UI in SWT is of course a lot of work. You can't expect anything from us this summer. After that, we'll see ...

There is an argo2ecore plugin about the place, presumably if you had the source then...
