Title: Investigating Eclipse Modeling Tools to Improve Usability in SaveIDE
Subject: Computer Science
Level: Advanced
Description: SAVE is a project which is still under development. It tries to incorporate component-based development principles in the design of embedded real-time systems, in particular vehicular systems. The IDE part of the project known as SaveIDE still lacks many features in terms of usability to be considered a good user-friendly environment for the end users to work with. Since SaveIDE is designed as a set of plug-ins in Eclipse, this thesis tries to investigate the features of different Eclipse modeling tools used in the design of the IDE to further improve its usability features. In order to achieve this goal, several usability guidelines and suggestions are examined and offered to be considered and used in the improvement process of SaveIDE. Some of the bug fixes and new features which we have worked on during our thesis are also mentioned here. This can help readers and other developers get a better picture of how to integrate the usability guidelines with Eclipse modeling tools in order to make SaveIDE more user-friendly. The problems we faced along with our solutions and recommendations to cope with them are also mentioned in each section.
