The pragmatics of model-based design refers to the practical aspects of handling graphical system models. This encompasses a range of activities, such as editing, browsing, or simulating models. We believe that the pragmatics of modeling deserves more attention than it has received so far. We also believe that there is the potential for signiﬁcant productivity enhancements, using technology that is largely already available. We address this research area in the following subprojects:
- KIELER Layout
A key enabler for enhancing productivity is the capability to automatically and quickly compute the layout of a graphical model, which frees the designer from the burden of manual drawing. Therefore we offer an infrastructure for integration and configuration of automatic layout as well as Java-based implementations of high-quality layout algorithms for use in modeling applications. Large parts of this have been moved to the Eclipse Layout Kernel (ELK).
There used to be many more project here, however, we don't have the manpower to maintain all of them. If you're interested you can find the old wiki pages in the Discontinued Projects section, which also lists the git commits which removed the corresponding plugins from our repository.
