Tigerstripe Hello World
< To: Tigerstripe
This section will guide you through a first installation of Tigerstripe Workbench and your first "hello world model".
Installing Tigerstripe Workbench
Tigerstripe provides multiple features and bundles for download. As a first time user, mostly interested in building a model, and trying code generation from it, we recommend you download the "Tigerstripe Workbench" feature (end-user workbench) from the Latest Build. Please note that there are 2 bundles available for download:
- The first .zip file (Workbench Plugins only) contains only Tigerstripe's plugins. Which mean you need to install the required plugins (EMF, GMF, etc...) to make it work. You may want to choose this option... if you know what you are doing :-).
- The second .zip file (Workbench Plugins + Required Plugins) is a bundle of not only the Tigerstripe plugins, but also all the required plugins. This should be your preferred choice.
Simply unzip the bundle on top of an Eclipse install (check version number for the specific build you are downloading) and fire off Eclipse. You should be good to go!
Create a first project
To create your first Tigerstripe project, go to the usual, File->New->Project. Select Tigerstripe/Tigerstripe Model Project. Complete the wizard and hit finish.
The perspective will automatically switch to the Tigerstripe perspective. Right-click on that project to create a blank Class Diagram, and you are ready to model away. Simply use the palette on the right to create your first model elements.
For more details, open the Help section of Eclipse, the Help Contents will contain a section on Tigerstripe Worbench where you'll find details about projects, generation, etc...
