Within DAF, engine software is created using model driven development. While these models are easy to understand, this sometimes brings difficulties during development that are different from code-based development. One example is renaming a variable, while most text-based IDE’s have extensive renaming support, this is not as natural in model-based tooling.

Within our department we have a set of in-house developed scripts that facilitate model driven development. However, these scripts currently have to be run from the command line, integration with the user interface of the IDE would be preferred. Furthermore, we would like to extend this set of scripts based on developer feedback.

This task includes:

  • Identify the needs of the developers using various research methods
  • Compare the features of text-based IDE’s with the model-based IDE
  • Inventorize the current list of tools and detect what is lacking
  • Design a modular software architecture for the scripts that can be used by DAF to create future tools
  • Integrate these tools in our visual IDE so they can easily be used by developers by aligning your software architecture with the API of the used IDE
Possible extensions:
  • Create new tools and where necessary improve the current set
