Palladio-Bench 4.0 Release

Palladio-Bench 4.0 Release

Palladio is a software architecture simulation approach which analyses software architecture for performance bottlenecks, scalability issues, reliability threats, and allows for a subsequent optimisations.

The core new features and improvements of Palladio-Bench 4.0 include:

  • Support for Eclipse Luna and Eclipse Mars.
  • EDP2 comes as new feature to support storage, evaluation, and presentation of experiment data. EDP2 is realized using EMF and replaces the now deprecated Sensorframework.
  • ProtoCom supports Java EE Servlets. Prototypes can now be generated for SAP Hana Cloud as target environments and directly be set into operation.
  • PCM elements are now CDO-enabled, supporting advanced storing options for these elements.
  • PCM has now a dedicated stereotyping mechanism, allowing to attach custom model annotations. For more information please refer to MDSDProfiles.
  • SimuLizar, an interpreter-based simulation with support for self-adaptive PCM models, is part of the release as an optional add-on.
  • Experiment Automation enables users to conduct a set of Palladio simulation runs for varying parameters. It is part of the release as an optional add-on.
  • The current LQN Solver version 5.8-6 and the LINE solver are now supported (see PCM2LQN).

As usual, Palladio-Bench is free for download. All sources are publicly available and licensed under EPL version 1.0.
