Despite economic crisis, Google renews its awesome summer of code program in 2009.
Cédric and Ian already blogged about it, but it is now official for Eclipse , we have been accepted as mentoring organization.
Students, Eclipse is a great open-source organization with various projects, have a look at the current ideas page !
I will present more in detail "Acceleo and ATL combine" proposal.
Eclipse Acceleo (previously named MTL) project provides an implementation and a development toolkit for the OMG MOF Model to Text Language.
Eclipse ATL project provides an implementation and a development toolkit for the ATLAS Transformation language.
Project idea is to work on combination of this 2 powerful technologies. On Acceleo side, it means being able in a template to call a model-to-model (m2m) transformation, for instance to improve readeability of a template. On ATL side, it means being able in a transformation to "serialize" model information, for instance to do some reporting.
Implementation should be made without high coupling between ATL and Acceleo as far as possible, in order to support in future other m2m languages, such as OMG QVT.
Hope you will find it interesting !
