Master Project Software Engineering, Winter Term 2010/2011


In this master project, we are developing an Eclipse plug-in for the ABS Language (Abstract Behavioral Specification Language). It will have the usual features of a modern IDE like syntax highlighting, outline views, auto completion and so on. At the end of the project we will even develop a debug mode for ABS, which will allow the user to interactively step through an ABS program. Further information about the current development can be found on
