Installation of AM3 (ATLAS MegaModel Management) from CVS

Install Eclipse, EMF and ATL

In order to use AM3 (ATLAS MegaModel Management), you need Eclipse, EMF and ATL. AM3 has been developed with and for Eclipse 3.2.x. AM3 may be compatible with other versions (we are currently testing it with Eclipse 3.3 and we do not find any specific issue for the moment). You can download Eclipse here: and EMF here:

Unzip the Eclipse zip file; this will create an eclipse directory with every Eclipse files in it.

Unzip the EMF zip file from the same directory (it also contains an eclipse directory, with the EMF additional files to Eclipse).

Then, you can install ATL by following the process explained in the "How Install ATL From CVS" Wiki page, of course without reinstalling Eclipse and EMF.

Configuration of CVS access

You should go to CVS Repository view (Window -> Open Perspective). Then you should add a new repository location. The required parameters are the followings:

You do not need a password.

Then, you can go to HEAD -> org.eclipse.gmt -> AM3. You can now select the projects as shown on the picture (note that the "org.eclipse.am3.zoos.XXX" ones are not mandatory) and check them out (this action is available in the context menu).

Configuration of AM3

Now, you need to go to the Plug-in perspective.

AM3 is ready to be tested. There are two ways to use it:

  • In the "Plug-in Development perspective", you can launch a Run-time workbench (Click on Run -> Run as -> Run-time workbench).
  • You can install AM3 in your copy of Eclipse. Go in the Plug-in perspective and select all the plug-in projects. In the context menu choose Export -> Deployable Plug-ins and Fragments.

In the screen Export Plug-ins and Fragments, check if all the projects are selected and choose the output folder.

Now you need to close Eclipse. Enter the "eclipse" directory (which contains plug-ins and features directories) then copy the created Jar files into the "plugins" directory. After that you can restart Eclipse.

You are ready to use AM3.
