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 support plugins: 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
  • 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
  • org.eclipse.emf.texo.datagenerator: for generating test data

The Texo runtime JAR and the generated runtime classes (*ModelFactory, *ModelPackage) depend on 3 (EMF) jar-files which are available through maven:

  • org.eclipse.emf.common
  • org.eclipse.emf.ecore
  • org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi

These jar files are available through maven (for example version 2.8.0-v20120911-0500).

For JSON web service support you also need to obtain org.json jar file. These can be downloaded from the internet, or try this location.

Or through

For more information with using EMF in a standalone Java application, see:

You can also configure Texo to only generate Entities, no EMF dependencies.


Texo jars (and the dependency on EMF) are also available in the central repository and in the main sonatype repository for snapshots.


  • the Texo pom files do not define dependencies to other libraries at the moment. Texo depends on 3 EMF jar files (see below on these page)

The Texo jar files can be downloaded through a browser by going to this page:


Texo Example Project(s)

The Texo example projects are hosted in this git repository:

This video discusses the example project setup and demos JSON web service support.
