TOPCASED stands for Toolkit in OPen source for Critical Applications and SystEm Development. It is a system and software engineering workshop based on Eclipse. It aims to provide the tools required to go from requirements to the implementation stages. Focused on modeling development engineering, it includes several graphical editors (for ECORE, UML, SysML, SAM, AADL, and more), an OCL rules editor and checker, several code generators (SMUC, UML2C, UML2Java, UML2Python), a document generator, gPM (a ticket tracker), xHDL tools, Tramway (a requirements traceability framework), and more. External tools can be easily connected to the workshop through its API or models.
Acceleo is a code generator designed to efficiently implement the MDA approach (Model Driven Architecture) and to improve software development productivity. It is natively integrated with Eclipse and EMF. It includes tools and editors making it easy to learn and to adapt to any kind of project or technology. It provides incremental generation, meta-model interoperability, simple and extensible syntax, template driven customization, and more.
Sculptor is a productivity tool that applies the concepts from Domain-Driven Design and Domain Specific Languages. You express your design intent in a textual specification, from which Sculptor generates high quality Java code and configuration. You can use the concepts from Domain-Driven Design (DDD) in the textual Domain Specific Language (DSL), e.g. Service, Module, Entity, Value Object, Repository. The generated code is based on well-known frameworks such as Spring Framework, Hibernate, and Java EE. Sculptor takes care of the technical details and the tedious repetitive work, and lets you focus on delivering more business value (and have more fun). The DSL and the code generation drives the development and is not a one time shot. The application can be developed incrementally with an efficient round trip loop. Sculptor is useful when developing typical enterprise or Web applications that benefit from a rich and persistent domain model.
Eclipse Code Recommender is an intelligent code recommender system which seamlessly integrates into Eclipse's Code Assist, and predicts only those method calls that are likely to be used by a developer in the current (code) situation. It can currently predict method calls for instances of the SWT framework, such as SWT Buttons, Labels, and Texts.
GlassFish Tools Bundle for Eclipse is an Eclipse distribution containing Eclipse Java EE 6 tooling. GlassFish 3 Java EE 6 is preconfigured, and optionally a JDK 1.6 all-in-one single installer is provided for XP, Mac OS X, OpenSolaris, or Linux. The GlassFish plugin for Eclipse provides the Application Server WTP adapter to enable Java EE development.
Databene Benclipse is an Eclipse plugin that integrates Databene Benerator with Eclipse. Benerator's purpose is to generate mass test data for performance testing that satisfies even complex validity constraints. Benclipse greatly simplifies especially the first steps in test data generation and speeds up test data definition even more by providing a project wizard with a series of templates to start with, a set of bundled JDBC drivers, a sophisticated JDBC configuration wizard, a database snapshot facility for creating database dumps in DbUnit format, and a built-in HSQL database for trying the first steps.
Zowie.Fractals is a plugin for the popular Eclipse IDE that lets the user explore the set of complex numbers in the Mandelbrot set. When rendered visually, these can be quite distracting, and even pretty. It features intuitive mouse usage, the ability to load and save your work as PNG files, the ability to change the number of iterations, and full editor history integration.
