Search in and Navigate through AUTOSAR Models

In the previous post "How to configure your free AUTOSAR model viewer" I showed how to use the ARTOP project and Eclipse to configure an Eclipse RCP which can be used to view AUTOSAR model at no cost. In this post, I will add information about the default search and navigation functionality by the tooling. In a following post, I will introduce even more powerful functionality through scripting.

How to configure your free AUTOSAR model viewer

Viewing and analyzing AUTOSAR models is a recurring task in automotive software development. Very often this is done by just inspecting the XML, which is cumbersome. Some companies have smarter "simple" tools in their portfolio, but they are often included in their commercial offering only. However, there is a no-cost solution, based on the community-source AUTOSAR tool platform Artop which supports some interesting features.  Read more >

How to fix Artop memory problems

In the automotive domain, itemis and others make intensive use of the community project Artop (Autosar Tool Platform) – an Eclipse (EMF) based implementation of the AUTOSAR meta-model. Artop supports the conversion of models between the many revisions of the AUTOSAR standard.  Read more >

Specification-By-Example for Model Transformations

At itemis one of our core development activities in a lot of our projects is the specification and implementation of model-to-model transformations. In a large project in the automotive domain we have been implementing a huge code base of transformations to and from a common domain model.  Read more >

How to use a textual editor for the Autosar Adaptive Platform

AUTOSAR is about to release its new specification for the Autosar Adaptive Platform. According to AUTOSAR, the difference to classic AUTOSAR is: "In comparison to the AUTOSAR Classic Platform the AUTOSAR Runtime Environment for the Adaptive Platform dynamically links services and clients during runtime."

BMW builds AUTOSAR backbone with open source projects sponsored by itemis

On September 28th the 9th AUTOSAR Open Conference took place in Gothenburg. From an Eclipse/Open Source point of view, Bernd Jäger's (BMW) talk on their Symphony project is very interesting. Read more >

Analyzing AUTOSAR model with Xbase

AUTOSAR models can grow to be quite complex and finding your way around the model is often not very easy. A simple search within a model is often not sufficient for a complex analysis. Read more >

Tycho 0.24, pom less builds and Eclipse m2e maven integration

Tycho 0.24 has been released, and one of its most interesting features is the support for POM-less builds. The Tycho 0.24 release notes explain the use of the extension. However, there is a problem with the .mvn/extensions.xml not being found when using Eclipse variables in the “Base Directory” field of the run configuration. I have created an m2e Bugzilla showing problem and workaround. Read more >

Automotive MDSD – What pickle?

Over at the modeling languages website, Scott Finnie has started a number of posts detailing his point of view on the status of model driven approaches. He concludes his first post with the statement “No wonder we’re in a pickle.”. Reading that, I myself was wondering that I don’t feel in a pickle at all. Read more >

Considering Agile for your tool chain development

Developing and integrating complex toolchains in automotive companies is a challenging task. A number of those challenges is directly addressed by the principles behind the "Agile Manifesto". So it is worth while to see what "Agile" has to offer for these, independent of a specific framework (SCRUM, Kanban, ...) Read more >
