OSATE: Plug-ins for Front-End Processing of AADL Models

The SAE AADL accommodates OSATE, which provides a low entry-cost solution based on Eclipse and the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF). The SEI has developed OSATE as a set of plug-ins on top of the open-source Eclipse platform to provide a toolset for front-end processing of AADL models.

The OSATE front-end has been augmented with a set of plug-ins (see Figure 1), including an AADL to MetaH converter, several analysis plug-ins for performing various architecture consistency checks and distributed resource allocation and scheduling analysis.
