The project is now suspended and archived.
Because of limited resources, the project exited from the release train in 2019-03, and then was archived in May 2020. Last EMF Facet release number is 126.96.36.199805181509. Archived resources can be found at https://www.eclipse.org/projects/archives.php
Using Eclipse Release Update Site (Recommended)
To install the latest EMF Facet release, just point your Install Manager to the pre-defined Eclipse simultaneous release update site: http://download.eclipse.org/releases/__release_name__. For instance:
- in an Indigo (3.7) installation the update site will be : http://download.eclipse.org/releases/indigo/
- in an Juno (4.2) installation the update site will be : http://download.eclipse.org/releases/juno/
- in an Kepler (4.3) installation the update site will be : http://download.eclipse.org/releases/kepler/
- in an Luna (4.4) installation the update site will be : http://download.eclipse.org/releases/luna/
- in an Mars (4.5) installation the update site will be :
Then, you can select the "EMF Facet SDK (Incubation)" feature under the "Modeling" category.
Update site locations
- Update sites:
- Alternative update sites:
- milestones 1.0.x: http://download.eclipse.org/facet/updates/milestones/1.0
Update site uses
The releases update site :
- contains the release (GA) and the service releases (SR1, SR2, etc.)
- should be used by all regular users
The milestones update sites:
- contain the milestones and release candidates: M1, M2, M3, M4, M5, M6, M7, RC1, RC2, RC3, RC4 (=GA), SR1 RC1, SR1 RC2, SR1 RC3, SR1 RC4 (=SR1), SR2 RC1, SR2 RC2, SR2 RC3, SR2 RC4 (=SR2)
The integration update sites:
- contain the integration build
- are referenced by emft-emffacet.b3aggrcon.
- the version declared in emft-emffacet.b3aggrcon must be used by the builds of other Eclipse projects engaged in the release train.
Using an archived update Site (Not Recommended)
You can download the archive of the EMF Facet updates sites from the EMF Facet download page but you will have to resolve the dependencies and find the corresponding archived update sites manually. The EMF Facet team does not provide the list of the archived update sites needed to satisfy the dependencies, because it is too complicated to maintain. That's why this kind of installation is not recommended.
