Eclipse MoDisco 0.11.0
The release deliverables have the same form as is found in most Eclipse projects, namely:
- MDT MoDisco SDK (includes runtime, sources, examples, tests and documentation) (downloadable and update site).
Compatibility of Release 0.11: The MDT MoDisco project will be developed in parallel, and released simultaneously, with the following Eclipse projects. As stated above, each milestone release of the MDT MoDisco project will be compatible with the corresponding milestones for each of these projects, and delivered the appropriate offset.
- Platform SDK version 4.3
- Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) version 2.9.0
- EMF Connected Data Objects (CDO) version 4.2.0
- EMF Compare version
- EMF Query version 1.7.0
- EMF Validation version
- EMFT EMF Facet version 0.3.0
- MDT UML2 version
- MDT OCL version 4.1.0
- M2M ATL version
- M2T Acceleo version
- Technology SWTBot version 2.0.4
- Eclipse Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) version 4.3.0
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 MDT MoDisco project will provide English strings in its default bundles and be localized to a subset of those locales offered by the Platform.
In order to remain current, each Eclipse release targets reasonably current versions of the underlying operating environments. The Eclipse MDT MoDisco project depends upon on the Platform and other projects, which are mostly "pure" Java. The 4.3 releases of the Eclipse Platform Project are 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. MDT MoDisco will target the same Java version as EMF, which currently also requires Java 5. Eclipse Platform SDK 4.3 will be tested and validated on a number of reference platforms. MDT MoDisco will be tested and validated against a subset of those listed for the platform.
This year we will try to make MoDisco compatible with Helios, because some potential users use old version of Eclipse.
