Continuous integration support in modeling tools

Collaborative Modeling in MDE


Continuous Integration (CI) and Model-Based Development (MBD) have both been hailed as practices that improve the productivity of software development. Their combination has the potential to boost productivity even more. The goal of our research is to identify im- pediments to realizing this combination in industrial collaborative modeling practices. In this paper, we examine certain specific fea- tures of modeling tools that, due to their immaturity, may represent impediments to combining CI and MBD. To this end, we identify features of modeling tools that are relevant to enabling CI practices in MBD processes and we review modeling tools with respect to their level of support for each of these features.
