The Eclpise Modeling Framework (EMF) is a framework and code generation facility that lets you define a model in any of these forms--Java interfaces, UML diagram, or XML Schema. EMF doesn´t require a completely different methodology or any sophisticated modeling tools. All you need to get started with EMF are the Eclipse Java Development Tools. EMF relates modeling concepts directly to their implementations, thereby bringing to Eclipse-and Java developers in general-the benefits of modeling with a low cost of entry. Unlike most tools of this type, EMF is truly integrated with and tuned for efficient programming. It answers the often-asked question, ´´Should I model or should I program?´´ with a resounding, ´´Both.´´ This book, written by the lead architects of EMF, provides both an introduction and tutorial to how to leverage and work with this powerful framework. In addition to the new coverage (see overflow page) this book provides: · A basic overview of the most important concepts in EMF and modeling. · Analysis of the most important framework classes and generator patterns including insightful discussions of various design alternatives. · Examples of many common framework customizations and programming techniques. Product Description EMF: Eclipse Modeling Framework Dave Steinberg Frank Budinsky Marcelo Paternostro Ed Merks Series Editors: Erich Gamma . Lee Nackman . John Wiegand The Authoritative Guide to EMF Modeling and Code Generation The Eclipse Modeling Framework enables developers to rapidly construct robust applications based on surprisingly simple models. Now, in this thoroughly revised Second Edition, the project´s developers offer expert guidance, insight, and examples for solving real-world problems with EMF, accelerating development processes, and improving software quality. This edition contains more than 40% new material, plus updates throughout to make it even more useful and practical. The authors illuminate the key concepts and techniques of EMF modeling, analyze EMF´s most important framework classes and generator patterns, guide you through choosing optimal designs, and introduce powerful framework customizations and programming techniques. Coverage includes . Defining models with Java, UML, XML Schema, and Ecore . NEW: Using extended Ecore modeling to fully unify XML with UML and Java . Generating high-quality code to implement models and editors . Understanding and customizing generated code . Complete documentation of @model Javadoc tags, generator model properties, and resource save and load options . NEW: Leveraging the latest EMF features, including extended metadata, feature maps, EStore, cross-reference adapters, copiers, and content types . NEW: Chapters on change recording, validation, and utilizing EMF in stand-alone and Eclipse RCP applications . NEW: Modeling generics with Ecore and generating Java 5 code About the Authors Dave Steinberg is a software developer in IBM Software Group. He has worked with Eclipse and modeling technologies since joining the company, and has been a committer on the EMF project since its debut in 2002. Frank Budinsky, a senior architect in IBM Software Group, is an original coinventor of EMF and a founding member of the EMF project at Eclipse. He is currently cochair of the Service Data Objects (SDO) specification technical committee at OASIS and lead SDO architect for IBM. Marcelo Paternostro is a software architect and engineer in IBM Software Group. He is an EMF committer and has been an active contributor to several other Eclipse projects. Before joining IBM, Marcelo managed, designed, and implemented numerous projects using Rational´s tools and processes. Ed Merks is the project lead of EMF and a colead of the top-level Modeling project at Eclipse. He holds a Ph.D. in Computing Science and has many years of in-depth experience in the design and implementation of languages, frameworks, and application development environments. Ed works as a software consultant in partnership with itemis AG. Backcover EMF: Eclipse Modeling Framework Dave Steinberg Frank Budinsky Marcelo Paternostro Ed Merks Series Editors: Erich Gamma .

In DetailJenkins is a highly popular continuous integration server. Its correct use supports a quality software development process. Jenkins is great at finding issues in software early and communicating it to a wide audience. Jenkins is also easily extendable with a simple framework for writing plugins. Currently there are over 400 plugins available for inclusion.Jenkins Continuous Integration Cookbook has over 80 recipes describing practical ways to use Jenkins and expanding its feature set by selective use of the best of breed plugins. Jenkins has a simple framework for writing plugins. There are over 400 plugins available. Therefore, it is easy to get lost in possibilities. Using practical recipes, this book will guide you through the complexities. The recipes are bundled into themes including security, maintainability, communication, building software, the valid use of code metrics, testing remotely, and writing your first plugin.Jenkins Continuous Integration Cookbook includes problem solving and how to do recipes for many common and less common tasks. A wide range of topics are covered from integrating, securing, and maintaining Jenkins in your organization to writing your first extension.The book begins with common maintenance tasks followed by securing Jenkins and enabling SSO. Then it explores the relationship between Jenkins builds and the Maven pom.xml. You will then learn ways to effectively communicate with various target audiences (developers, project managers, the public). You will then explore source code metrics with related recipes, and set up and run remote stress and functional tests. The book finally lists a series of 11 interesting plugins with a concluding recipe on how to create your first plugin.Jenkins Continuous Integration Cookbook describes solutions and optimizations to problems commonly found.ApproachThis book provides a problem-solution approach to some common tasks and some uncommon tasks using Jenkins and is well-illustrated with practical code examples.Who this book is forIf you are a Java developer, software architect, technical project manager, build manager, or development or QA engineer, this book is for you.You should have a basic understanding of the Software Development Life Cycle and Java development, as well as a rudimentary understanding of Jenkins.
