A quick tour to start working with OOModels[edit]

  • OOModels is a repository for modelling artefacts of all kinds. The majority of content will consist of classes or packages.
  • Press "edit" or "view source" to see how the class is specified. In this case, it's in WIML notation.
  • To download an artefact, press the "Download Code" link in the box on the right side of the page. There, select a target format, don't forget to check the disclaimer confirmation checkbox, and press download. Note, that you can download the code either as specified or converted.
  • If you work with an application, you need to select a subset of classes you need from oomodels. To do this, you define a bundle, e.g. Artefact:Bundle/net/leue/andreas/sandbox/model03/Model03. Here, you list all classes you want to select, or just list a packages and thereby implicitly select all classes in that package, or you include other bundles.
  • Bundles can also be "downloaded", if you do so, you can get a resolved list of all final artefact pages you need for that project.
  • If you're working with eclipse, you can use a plugin (see DevelopmentPlan, direct link eclipse updatesite, currently still a bit slow because of mediawiki, which isn't made for mass downloads, we're working on a cache - want to contribute?).
  • You can also integrate the download software into your own application. It already works as a standalone commandline downlaoder, and within Sphenon's EM/OS system.

The overall picture[edit]

          OOModels contains Artefacts
                 sandbox                                                      Artefacts have a Type
                   business                                                   (and other metadata)
                     foundation                                               e.g. WIML or XMI
                   |   entities                                                       |
                   |     Company ------------------------------- Artefacts can be downloaded
                   |     Person                                + during download, they can be converted
                   |     Name                                    into another format, like WIML or XMI
                   |     ...
                   |                                           + conversions are specified within the wiki itself
          Artefacts are organised in Namespaces,                 by adding a converter (e.g. OOEM to Java POJO),
          and they belong to a Domain                            and a template (e.g. ooem-1.0-java-pojoraw-1.0)
