Revision as of 11:12, 29 July 2008 by (Talk | contribs) (org.eclipse.jwt.we)

This site contains information about the dependencies of JWT's components, as well as a description on how to download the latest versions from the Eclipse CVS and the layout of the JWT CVS repositories.

Access the JWT Source Code

The planned and current state of the next release of JWT components can be viewed at Upcoming Release Information.

To download the source code of the various components of JWT, please connect your CVS client (typically Eclipse 3.4's CVS Browsing perspective) with:

  • Host:
  • Repository path: /cvsroot/technology
  • User: anonymous
  • Password: (none)
  • Connection type: pserver

If you have a committer account, please provide your committer data (username and password) and select as connection type extssh instead of pserver.

In this CVS repository, the source code of JWT is under the "org.eclipse.jwt" directory, which you can retrieve by doing a CVS checkout. It is laid out as follow :

  • org.eclipse.jwt/we : Workflow Editor, i.e. design time tools
  • org.eclipse.jwt/wam : Workflow Audit And Monitoring, i.e. runtime time tools and framework
  • org.eclipse.jwt/desktop : Simulator and other standalone BPM tools

For a more detailed layout please refer to Detailed Layout of the CVS.



Version 0.5.0 of the JWT Workflow Editor (JWT-WE) requires Eclipse (3.4) with the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) and the Graphical Edition Framework (GEF).

The easiest way to get an Eclipse environment with all dependencies is to install Eclipse Ganymede JEE Edition and a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) / Java Development Kit (JDK) 5.0 or higher.

If you already have Eclipse installed you can download EMF and GEF from from your "Software updates" menu.

Get the Code

You need to retrieve the JWT source code by checking it out from CVS, as described above.

If you used an external CVS tool to check out the code, you need to import the source code into Eclipse as projects (in the Java Perspective, using right click > import existing projects).

Run the Plugins from Code

Right click on the jwt-we project and choose Run as > Eclipse application. This will launch JWT-WE with all plugins that are available in the workspace. If Eclipse does not succeed to start or JWT-WE is not active, please ensure that all necessary plug-ins are configured to start with your projects. To do so, click on the arrow in the "Run" item in toolbar, and choose "Run Configuration...". Select/Create a run configuration (Eclipse Application) for JWT-WE and on the Plug-ins tab select all necessary plug-ins (in case you have doubt, select "Add Required Plugins"). Workflow Editor plugins (e.g. the Documentation Generator plugin) must also be enabled in order to be available at run time. You can now use the Run item in the toolbar to start your new configuration.
