Sintaks : Textual syntaxes for models
Participants : Erwan Brottier, Didier Vojtisek [ correspondant ] .
The Sintaks tool enables to define bridges between concrete (textual files) and abstract syntax (models). It automates the process to build parser and pretty printer that are typically used by textual editors.
A bridge consists in a Sintaks model that defines the way to:
parse a text in order to get the corresponding model (with respect to a given metamodel);
explore a model in order to pretty print its textual representation.
Sintaks is based onto the EMF repository and then is compatible with most of the modeling tools of the MDA community running in Eclipse.
