Eclipse EMF Demo – A complete modeling platform for Java

Coté talks with Ed Merks about the Eclipse Modeling Framework project, or EMF. Ed gives us a quick overview of the framework and new features and then walks us through designing a model in EMF, generating code, and then round-tripping back and forth. Watching the demo you can see how EMF could be used to create data models at the begining of a project and then maintain them throughout.

There is a larger version of the video available, as well as a larger Flash version.

    A constructive critique:

    The video’s content is interesting, but resolution is so bad that visual information is lost. Audio alone would do the same. I suppose you do this to reduce download size, but in my opinion it’s a wrong decision.

    Best regards.

    Great introduction to EMF. Enough description was given to start the wheels rolling on where this meta modelling can be used in my current context. Thanks a lot.
