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 .

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.
