Capella/Oomph Setup

This page collects information about the Oomph based capella development environment setup

  • Clone, imports capella source code and organizes it into working sets
  • Sets capella code formatter preferences
  • Installs the required tools to generate the capella metamodel

What is the difference to Capella Studio?

Capella Studio uses the Capella Product as a base and installs capella development tools into it, i.e. EGF, Kitalpha VPDSL. The oomph based setup installs capella development tools into a development platform of your choice, e.g. the new Eclipse Oxygen.

When should I not use the Setup based environment?

The setup based environment does not install VPDSL tooling, so if you're into vpdsl development, you should either stick to Capella Studio, or install VPDSL manually.
