Add rich modeling functionality to your product: Embed MetaEdit+ Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Monday, December 01 2014 @ 03:12 AM EST
Contributed by: MetaCase

MetaCase (www.metacase.com) has released an embeddable version of its modeling and code generation tool, MetaEdit+®. Now companies can add top class modeling support to their products for a fraction of the time and cost of previous approaches.

By providing an intuitive graphical modeling interface to their tool, companies can get customers who could never be reached with a traditional GUI or textual language. Users appreciate a graphical language that shows things in the familiar symbols and vocabulary of their domain, with no need to map what is in their heads to an unrelated language. Domain-specific constraints ensure validity and give intelligent feedback.

Creating such intuitive tooling used to be a massive project, but MetaEdit+ changes that. An independent study (tinyurl.com/dsm13ELK) by Eclipse committers found modeling languages were implemented 10–50 times faster with MetaEdit+ than with other commercial and open source tools. Industrial experience agrees: Conformiq integrated MetaEdit+ as the modeling front end for their automated test design tool, and CTO Dr. Stephan Schulz says, “MetaEdit+ is a great tool — a powerful and flexible environment where it is easy to create your own modeling languages and editors.”

The resulting tooling runs on all major platforms, Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. Embedding MetaEdit+ into a product is made easy with example code in a range of languages and full plug-ins for Visual Studio and Eclipse. The embedded UI adapts to the company’s modeling language and branding, with a wide variety of user interface customizations and tool integration mechanisms possible.

Companies have embedded MetaEdit+ in products covering a wide variety of areas, such as early phase analysis, software development, testing and deployment. The partner program provides support for the initial language and generator development and tool integration, and offers services for end-user training and support. Using mature, reliable modeling tooling lets companies concentrate on their core business, as Conformiq found: “We’ve had it in production for a year, and there has not been much at all in terms of errors or need for support. The need for training has been absolutely minimal, even for people with no previous exposure to modeling. Users find it easy to use, and feel like it is part of our product.”
