New and Noteworthy.


Available components:

2 components are still in developpement:

  • SCA Composite Form Editor: an editor for composite files based on Eclipse forms.
  • SCA Composite Introspector: Construct SCA assembly file in a bottom-up approach.

Ideas for new components:


  • You can also download Eclipse with all requirements (Eclipse Modeling Tools) for SCA Tools, and then install SCA Tools from the Ganymede Update site.
  1. Download Eclipse Modeling Tools
  2. Install it, and start it
  3. Go to the Help menu > Software Updates
  4. Select the tab Available Software
  5. Select Ganymede Update Site > SOA Development > SCA Composite Tools Feature 1.0.0
  6. Click on the Install button in the upper right corner to start the installation
  7. And that's it...
