Reviews run for a minimum of one week. The outcome of the review is decided on this date. This is the last day to make comments or ask questions about this review.
EMF Compare 4.0.0 will mainly focus on user experience, overhauling the filters API and functionality to make it cleared to extend and smoother to use. This will also allow us to decorellate the merge from the UI as it should be.
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
The project is built from the EMF Compare HIPP through Tycho. A nightly is built once a day if the SCM polling sees a change from the last build.
2000+ unit tests launched on every build.
Code coverage is about 75% of the code base.
Common formatter and compiler configuration used throughout the whole project's plug-ins.
Checkstyle activated on all distinct plug-ins.
Eclemma used on a regular basis to ensure and improve code coverage from the unit tests.
Yourkit java Profiler used on a regular basis to improved performances and avoid bottlenecks.
Findbugs launched on a regular basis to avoid detectable bugs.
Javadoc represents about 40% of the java source code.
An analysis of the code base is available on Open Hub.
EMF Compare is conforming to the Eclipse user interface guidelines.
Localization : integrated into Babel
There are no outstanding issues with the API state of this release. All mehods and classes that face deletion have been marked as deprecated with instructions on how to switch to the new behavior, and will stay in the code base until the next release.
No standard exists concerning the model comparison, though EMF Compare works nicely with any standard-based metamodel.
Since the 1.2 release a specific support for the UML standard is included in EMF Compare. This is also included in the later streams.
