Assessment of the Evolution of the RODIN Open Source platform

Christophe Ponsard, Jean Christophe Deprez, Jacques Flamand, Assessment of the Evolution of the RODIN Open Source platform, Third RODIN Users and Developer Workshop at Deploy Federeted Event, Fontainebleau (France), 28-29 February 2012 (accepted)

The RODIN platform is an Open Source extensible Eclipse-based IDE for Event-B that provides effective support for refinement and mathematical proof. RODIN emerged out of the RODIN FP6 Project (2004-2007). It is still actively supported by the European Commission through the Deploy FP7 project (2008-2012) and the FP7 ADVANCED project (2011-2014). Over the years RODIN has known a growing success from a usage point of view, as show by its download statistics on figure 1. However in order to assess the long term sustainability of RODIN, it is important to pay a closer look at key Open Source characteristics of the project and of the community that formed around it.
