Abstract
This paper describes the development of software that generates graphical icons for classes written in Modelica, an object oriented language for modeling complex systems. The icon rendering is developed as a new feature in the JModelica IDE, a plugin for the multi-language software development environment Eclipse. The JModelica IDE is included in the distribution of the open source project JModelica.org, the aim of which is to create an industrially viable open source platform for optimization of Modelica models. Icon rendering of Modelica models is a step towards integrating graphical editing in JModelica IDE, which will facilitate the editing and decrease the editing time. Details of the implementation, as well as the difficulties... (More)
