Eclipse EMF Facet 0.4.0

Release Date

The release deliverables have the same form as is found in most Eclipse projects, namely:

  • EMFT EMF Facet SDK (includes runtime, sources, examples, and documentation) (downloadable and update site).

Compatibility of Release 0.4.0: The EMFT EMF Facet project will be developed in parallel, and released simultaneously, with the following projects. As stated above, each milestone release of the EMFT EMF Facet project will be compatible with the corresponding milestones for each of these projects, and delivered the appropriate offset.

  • Eclipse Platform SDK version 4.4
  • Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) version 2.9

The Eclipse Platform is designed as the basis for internationalized products. The user interface elements provided by the Eclipse SDK components, including dialogs and error messages, are externalized. The English strings are provided as the default resource bundles. As a result, the EMFT EMF Facet project will provide English strings in its default bundles and be localized to a subset of those locales offered by the Platform.

Target Environments

In order to remain current, each Eclipse release targets reasonably current versions of the underlying operating environments. The Eclipse EMFT EMF Facet project depends upon on the Platform and other projects, which are mostly "pure" Java. The 4.4 release of the Eclipse Platform Project is written and compiled against version 5.0 of the Java Platform APIs, and targeted to run on version 5.0 of the Java Runtime Environment, Standard Edition. EMF Facet will target the same Java version as EMF, which currently also requires Java 5. Eclipse Platform SDK 4.4 will be tested and validated on a number of reference platforms. EMFT EMF Facet will be tested and validated against a subset of those listed for the platform.

Service, Support and Maintenance

Service and support will take priority over new development work, however this year the restructuring has the highest priority. Commitments and schedules are subject to arbitrary change, slippage, or even deferral.
