To ease the development on Papyrus, each member of the team works with basically the same configuration.
 +
 
 +
By far the easiest way to manage this is using the [[Eclipse Oomph Installer]] to manage your Papyrus development workbench.
 +
 
 +
=== Papyrus Oomph Setup Model ===
 +
 
 +
The [[Eclipse Oomph Installer]] provides a set-up model for Papyrus, making it easier than ever to get a complete Eclipse workbench up and running for development on the Papyrus source code.  Just download the Oomph Installer from the linked wiki page and follow the simple wizard to create your IDE and import the Papyrus source projects that you want to work on.
 +
 
 +
Pick any product you like on the first page, but be sure it's the latest release of that product for the Papyrus stream you're working on.  For example, if you're working on the Luna service stream of Papyrus, you need the Luna release of Eclipse.  On the second page, expand '''Eclipse.org''' / '''Papyrus''' to see the various components that you can import to work on.  Pick any combination of the leaf-level sub-(sub-)projects, even all of them if you like.  In the third page where you specify variables such as install location, workspace location, git clone, etc. be sure to choose "Luna" for the Target Platform.  This ensures that you will be set up to work on Papyrus Luna (SR1), which is the only development stream currently supported by the setup model (until Mars development gets under way).
 +
 
 +
Contributing your changes is easy because Oomph will clone the Papyrus Git repository for you and configure Gerrit push.
 +
 
 +
Amongst possibly other details, the setup model configures:
 +
 
 +
* your IDE with all of the tools needed to edit and build the source projects you choose
 +
* your workspace with a Git clone and the source projects imported from it that you choose
 +
* a PDE target that includes all of the dependencies required by Papyrus plus the latest nightly build of Papyrus, itself, so that you can import only a subset of the (many) source projects but still run the complete Papyrus toolset in a run-time workbench
 +
* Mylyn queries for current open bugs and enhancements in the Papyrus bugzilla database
 +
* Mylyn queries for the status of the latest Papyrus automated builds, including tests
 +
* Mylyn queries for open Gerrit reviews
 +
* preferences enforcing the Papyrus standard compiler and code formatter/template settings
 +
 
 +
Please raise bugs if you see any problems in the setup configuration.
 +
 
 +
On the first page, the simplest option is to start with the Eclipse Standard package because the setup model will add everything else you need for working on Papyrus's various code and models:
 +
 
 +

On the second page, pick whatever Papyrus components you need to import into the workspace:

[[PSF]] Following files will allow you to import all Papyrus plugins used during build phase:
+
To know if a downloaded plugin should compile, you can have a look to a Papyrus installation. If the plugin comes with the installation, it should compile!
PSF files are now automatically generated using the SVN repository. They do not necessarily correspond to what is built.
+
The script used to generate them is available in this project http://dev.eclipse.org/svnroot/modeling/org.eclipse.mdt.papyrus/trunk/readme/

[edit] Development Environment

To ease the development on Papyrus, each member of the team works with basically the same configuration.

By far the easiest way to manage this is using the Eclipse Oomph Installer to manage your Papyrus development workbench.

[edit] Papyrus Oomph Setup Model

The Eclipse Oomph Installer provides a set-up model for Papyrus, making it easier than ever to get a complete Eclipse workbench up and running for development on the Papyrus source code. Just download the Oomph Installer from the linked wiki page and follow the simple wizard to create your IDE and import the Papyrus source projects that you want to work on.

Pick any product you like on the first page, but be sure it's the latest release of that product for the Papyrus stream you're working on. For example, if you're working on the Luna service stream of Papyrus, you need the Luna release of Eclipse. On the second page, expand Eclipse.org / Papyrus to see the various components that you can import to work on. Pick any combination of the leaf-level sub-(sub-)projects, even all of them if you like. In the third page where you specify variables such as install location, workspace location, git clone, etc. be sure to choose "Luna" for the Target Platform. This ensures that you will be set up to work on Papyrus Luna (SR1), which is the only development stream currently supported by the setup model (until Mars development gets under way).

Contributing your changes is easy because Oomph will clone the Papyrus Git repository for you and configure Gerrit push.

Amongst possibly other details, the setup model configures:

  • your IDE with all of the tools needed to edit and build the source projects you choose
  • your workspace with a Git clone and the source projects imported from it that you choose
  • a PDE target that includes all of the dependencies required by Papyrus plus the latest nightly build of Papyrus, itself, so that you can import only a subset of the (many) source projects but still run the complete Papyrus toolset in a run-time workbench
  • Mylyn queries for current open bugs and enhancements in the Papyrus bugzilla database
  • Mylyn queries for the status of the latest Papyrus automated builds, including tests
  • Mylyn queries for open Gerrit reviews
  • preferences enforcing the Papyrus standard compiler and code formatter/template settings

Please raise bugs if you see any problems in the setup configuration.

On the first page, the simplest option is to start with the Eclipse Standard package because the setup model will add everything else you need for working on Papyrus's various code and models:

On the second page, pick whatever Papyrus components you need to import into the workspace:

[edit] Common Environment

Following is a description of the basic configuration:

  • The latest Eclipse Modeling (Or Standard) release
  • EGit
  • [1] JAutoDoc
    • Configure the header template according to your company: Eclipse Preferences -> Java -> JAutodoc
  • Java 1.6:
    • Eclipse Preferences -> Java -> Compiler
    • Eclipse Preferences -> Java -> Installed JREs
    • VM Arguments for debug mode:
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.6 -Xms768m -Xmx1024m -XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=384m -XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled

[edit] Required External Plugins

Papyrus requires some external plugins in order to compile.
The following page maintain a list of Papyrus Required External Plugins

[edit] Development Plan

[edit] Specifications

The specifications are available here: Luna plan

[edit] Getting the code

[edit] Connecting to the git repository

The code is available under git at this location ssh://committer_id@git.eclipse.org/gitroot/papyrus/org.eclipse.papyrus.git or http://git.eclipse.org/c/papyrus/org.eclipse.papyrus.git See the Papyrus project developer resources page for more details

[edit] Retrieve code

To know if a downloaded plugin should compile, you can have a look to a Papyrus installation. If the plugin comes with the installation, it should compile!


  • The following plugins are not distributed and could be closed (deprecated, not yet provided in the Papyrus distribution or for developpers only):
all plugins of the layer 'developer', except if you need to generate diagrams (in this case you should install GMF Tooling as well)

[edit] Papyrus Code Standards

  • Java Doc - every class, method and field including private ones should be documented with Java Doc
  • No abbreviations - the class, methods and variables should have meaningful names
  • Formatting - the code should be formatted in accordance with format templates
  • Always use brackets in conditions, loops, ...
  • Compile - the modified code and other plugins should be compilable. Be sure to use Java 1.5 code compatibility. Check other plugins that could be influenced before commiting!
  • Standard Java Rules coding - Unless specified differently, the Java Standard Coding rules should be applied: no abbreviations, variables starting with lower case; class and types with upper case; Composed name separated with upper case; no underscore in names; ...
  • In case of doubt - check existing code from those following the rules :-)

[edit] Papyrus Coding guidelines

A few points may be a little tricky when coding for Papyrus. Among them:

[edit] Papyrus Plugin Naming Scheme and Folders Structure

[edit] Structure and behavior of papyrus

[edit] Papyrus Command Execution, History, Undo/Redo

[edit] Papyrus ServiceRegistry

The ServiceRegistry is one of the main Papyrus component. The idea is that each Papyrus feature should be a service registered to the ServiceRegistry.

The ServiceRegistry should be accessible from any code. It allows to retrieve the components you need to perform your task.
A new implementation of the ServiceRegistry is submitted. The new ServiceRegistry is discused here Papyrus Developer Guide/Service Registry
