This year, two interesting proposals related to State Chart XML were accepted. The first is about a web browser based runtime for SCXML and the second is about an Eclipse plugin for generating SCXML documents from state charts.
Congrats, Jake and Long! The two abstracts, respectively, are:
Development on the World Wide Web
This project has two goals. The first is to develop an SCXML-to-
World Wide Web. This would allow developers to elegantly describe
and implement Web-based UIs with complex behavioural requirements.
The second goal is to generate graphical depictions of statecharts,
which may then be animated in response to live UI events. This would
allow developers to better comprehend the dynamic behaviour
described by their statecharts.
An Eclipse-based Visual State Chart XML editor/debugger that
generates SCXML documents
State Chart XML (SCXML) provides a generic state-machine based
execution environment based on Harel State Tables. It is very
useful to handler complex state transfer logic, but if a SCXML file
is large and complex, it will become too difficult to maintain and
refactor or to test its logic. This project aims to provide an
Eclipse and GMF based Visual Editor and Debugger for SCXML, which can
also be used to generate SCXML documents and code according to a
Here's to a good summer to all involved!
