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.
Saros is a Eclipse plugin for collaborative text editing that in particular targets distributed pair programming (also called remote pair programming), but can support arbitrarily many participants at once. All members of a session have an identical copy of an Eclipse project and Saros keeps these copies in sync as editing progresses.
DatabaseToUML reverse engineers a database schema from an existing relational JDBC database. Tables and fields are reversed to classes and attributes, constraints are reversed to association, and tables composed only of foreign keys are converted to many-to-many associations. The main idea is to reuse the reversed model in a generator, taking UML2.x (EMF XMI 2.0/2.1) models as input.
Visual Paradigm for UML (VP-UML) is a powerful, cross-platform, and easy-to-use visual UML modeling and CASE tool. It provides software developers with a cutting edge development platform to build quality applications faster, better, and cheaper. It facilitates excellent interoperability with other CASE tools and most of the leading IDEs.
i-net Doqua is an Eclipse plug-in that helps documentation writers and developers to keep track of inconsistencies between style guides and the actual documentation. The system integrates into the Eclipse IDE and introduces a new perspective and several views. Since i-net Doqua uses standard JUnit testcases to check the documentation, you can trigger checks using Hudson or similar Ant based systems.
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.
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.
Java XML XPath - Eclipse Templates is a set of 24 Java editor templates for easily working with XML documents in Eclipse. It lets you just type XML in any Java editor and select what you want to do with the XML document. It uses the DOM parser provided with the JDK, so there is nothing more to install. Instructions, templates, and examples for using XPath are included along with three cheat sheets for working with the DOM and XPath.
