To accelerate the adoption of TDL, TC MTS has commissioned an open source implementation of TDL in order to lower the barrier to entry for both users and tool vendors in getting started with using TDL. The open source implementation comprises graphical and textual editors, validation facilities, as well as a UML profile for TDL to enable the application of TDL in UML-based working environments. It will be made available later in 2017 as an ETSI open source software project accessible from the TDL website and enabling contributions from the community.
The open source implementation is based on the Eclipse XText toolset to provide a set of Java libraries and Eclipse plugins to support development of TDL specifications.
