Franca Interface Definition Language

Dr. Klaus Birken, Principal Engineer, itemis AG

Franca is an open-source framework for definition and transformation of software interfaces. It is especially useful for integrating software components, e.g., in the context of the GENIVI Automotive/Infotainment platform. In this webcast, we will explain how Franca helps building software products based on the formal definition of software interfaces including their dynamic behavior. Franca has been proposed as an official Eclipse project ( proposals/modeling.franca).
