BUMBLE aims at providing an innovative system and software development framework based on modeling through blended modeling notations/languages (e.g. textual and graphical). The framework provides semi-automatic generation and management of full-fledged blended modeling environments from arbitrary DSMLs. Such modeling environments are expected to greatly boost the development of complex multi-domain systems by enabling seamless textual and graphical collaborative modeling.
Based on a preliminary empirical study by some of the project idea partners, we expect at least a 30% improvement of the development speed using BUMBLE blended solutions compared to the state of the art of mutually exclusive notations for DSMLs.
The results of BUMBLE will be (1) fed back into existing state-of-the-art open-source solutions enabling interested industrial and academic partners in the project and beyond to benefit from the project results, and (2) exploited in the development processes and tools of the consortium’s industrial partners.
