<h3>EGF: a Software Factory Tool - </h3>
<div id="introText">
<p>EGF (Eclipse Generation Factories) is a software factory tool with the purpose to generate software artifacts,
such as code or application, in order to automate software development.

<div id="EGFConceptsText">
<p>EGF is an engine based on four types of generation unit:
<ul>
<li><b>Task</b>: it enables to execute code written in a language (e.g., Java, Ant, JRuby) or tools (e.g., Acceleo, ATL, Jet)</li>
<li><b>Factory component</b>: it declares generation parameters and orchestrates calls to tasks or other factory components</li>
<li><b>Pattern</b>: it is a powerful formalism which enables to process resources (e.g., model, file), in a language (e.g., Java, Jet), with parameters (e.g., navigation strategy, post-processor, reporter)</li>
<li><b>Generation Chain</b>: it is a domain-specific model which enables to abstract generations</li>
</ul>
EGF is designed to be extensible and accept new types of generation unit.
On the other hand, because a task is able to execute code and tools, EGF is not strictly limited to generation.

<h3>Software Factories Portfolios</h3>
<p>A software factory portfolio provides an off-the-shelf generation solution. EGF is released with two portfolios:
<ul>
<li><b>Enhanced EMF Generation</b>: 1) it enriches the EMF generation with new generation topics (e.g., html doc, ecoretools diagrams, Java doc), 2) it opens the EMF Generation customization with the EGF patterns</li>
<li><b>Build chain editor and generator</b>: it provides 1) an editor to model a build chain for continuous integration, and 2) a generator with targets, by default, Hudson/jenkins and Buckminster</li>
</ul>
