Texo/Download and Install
Texo provides both a development as well as a runtime solution. The development plugins can be downloaded and installed in Eclipse using the update manager. For runtime usage you can use maven or download directly. See further below for more information.
Development Environment: update manager
For Texo's development solutions you need to install Texo into Eclipse. This is done through an update manager. For runtime usage of Texo see the next section.
Texo is available through this update site:
The last successful nightly build is available through this update site:
After installing and restarting you can generate code from ecore/xsd models and refer to Texo plugins from plugin MANIFEST.MF files.
Runtime usage, web container
For runtime usage you have several options to download the Texo jar files and their dependencies.
Texo jar files and dependencies
To use the runtime layer of Texo in a web container you need the following jar files:
- org.eclipse.emf.texo: Texo core
- org.eclipse.emf.texo.server: for server side logic, entitymanager handling etc.
- org.eclipse.emf.texo.json: for json serialization and json web service support
- org.eclipse.emf.texo.xml: for xml and xmi serialization for xml/json web service support
The Texo runtime JAR and the generated runtime classes (*ModelFactory, *ModelPackage) depend on 3 (EMF) jar-files:
These jar files are available through maven (for example version 2.8.0-v20120911-0500), or can be found in the plugins directory of your Eclipse installation.
Note: you can also configure Texo to only generate Entities, without EMF dependencies. In this case there is no dependency on EMF.
For JSON web service support you also need to obtain org.json jar file. These can be downloaded from the maven central repository, or try this location.
Here is an example on how to make use of Texo snapshots available through sonatype:
<repositories> <repository> <id>sonatype-oss-public</id> <url>https://oss.sonatype.org/content/groups/public/</url> <releases> <enabled>true</enabled> </releases> <snapshots> <enabled>true</enabled> </snapshots> </repository> </repositories>
The EMF jar files are published within the same group id as Texo: org.eclipse.emf. Texo will work fine with older versions of EMF (from 2.5.0 onwards), but if you can, use the latest EMF versions available in maven central.
When using maven in your project it makes sense to check this troubleshooting tip:
Note: the Texo pom files currently do not explicitly define dependencies to the EMF and json libraries. This means that you manually need to define the dependency to these libraries in your own pom. This will be re-solved/fine-tuned in later versions.
