Migrating the Asmeta toolset from a parser generator to Xtext

Speaker:
Angelo Gargantini (University of Bergamo)

Abstract:
We report our experience on migrating a toolset for the Abstract State Machine forma method (asmeta.sf.net), from the heavy use of parser generator like javacc to Xtext. We present the advantages, the problems we faced, and the adopted solutions.

Notes:
The work is a collaboration between the University of Bergamo, the University of Milan, and the Charles University in Czech Republic. It is a joint work done by Paolo Arcaini, Silvia Bonfanti, Angelo Gargantini, Elvinia Riccobene, Patrizia Scandurra with the help of the students Valentina Centurelli, Paolo Gaspari, e Andrea Spalluzzi.
