Integrating Open-Source Modeling Projects: Collaborative Modeling with Papyrus and EMF Compare
While many open-source modeling tools have traditionally been mostly the basis for building commercial tools on top, we recently observe an increasing direct adoption of those underlying open-source tools bundled together into industrial-ready modeling products. Adopters of those open-source tools thereby gain independence from respective vendors and win flexibility and the freedom to tailor and extend the open-source modeling tools to their specific needs.
