In a recent master thesis a meta-modeling based framework called SyncMeta* was developed that allows collaborative creation of (meta) models in near real-time by multiple users. The framework was implemented as a widget based user interface based on the open source ROLE SDK. In this framework, the diagram canvas always represents the complete view on the model. In the user interface, a single widget offers a drawing canvas to manipulate the model. For complex models and complicated modeling languages, this user interface metaphor is sub-optimal.

The aim of this thesis is therefore to conceive and implement a view abstraction in the present metamodeling framework. The idea is that the metamodeler is enabled to define views on the artifacts of the modeling language. A view is a representation of the model from the perspective of a set of aspects of the modeled system (e.g. the structural view of a software system). Implementing this in our framework will allow to flexibly generate and embed multiple widgets in the user interface, each representing a particular view of the model.
