lightbulb-o Model/Metamodel CoExplorer v1.0 is out

If you have some trouble in navigating in the API and modelio metamodels, then this tool is for you...

CoExplorer allows you to browse any elements in a metamodel-oriented way instead of using Modelio' standard browser and property sheets. While these tools are end-user oriented they provide a distorted view on how the current model is actually represented in terms of the metamodel.

If you are a developer, you may instead spent time browsing Modelio API documentation or using autocompletion within eclipse for instance. But I'm sure that the number of methods and metaclasses makes it really hard to understand what is really usefull or not, especially since modelio supports include BPMN, UML and ANALYST. With the Model/Metamodel CoExplorer only meta features that are actually used in the context at hand are displayed.

The best way to understand what the tool is doing is to use it. Note that you can also browse the diagram graphics which is not metamodelled in Modelio. With modelio 3, you can even navigate in the metamodel itself.

The script has been submitted to Modelio store. The code is available in this project in the download directory. However, please use this Modelio forum for comments, questions, bug reports, feature requests, etc.

Enjoy the meta navigation.

Hi jmfavre,

this is quite an impressive work, thank you very much for sharing. :up

I looked at the code a little, the only problem I noticed for now is a memory/resource leak involving DiagramHandle: they must be closed, or all diagram will remain opened in the background.
