Development Environment

To ease the development of Papyrus, each member of the team works with basically the same configuration. There are two ways to get your development environment:

  • downloading and installing Eclipse
  • using the Eclipse Installer (by Oomph) to manage your Papyrus development workbench.

Java Version

OpenJDK 11 (or higher) is recommended.

Downloading Eclipse

You can download a fresh Eclipse Package release on this page. We advise you to download the Eclipse Committer version.

Papyrus Oomph Setup Model

The Eclipse Installer provides a set-up model for Papyrus, making it easier than ever to get a complete Eclipse workbench up and running for development on the Papyrus source code. Just download the Oomph Installer from the linked wiki page and follow the simple wizard to create your IDE and import the Papyrus source projects that you want to work on.

Pick any product you like on the first page, but be sure it's the latest release of that product for the Papyrus stream you're working on. For example, if you're working on the Luna service stream of Papyrus, you need the Luna release of Eclipse. On the second page, expand Eclipse.org / Papyrus to see the various components that you can import to work on. Pick any combination of the leaf-level sub-(sub-)projects, even all of them if you like. In the third page where you specify variables such as install location, workspace location, git clone, etc. be sure to choose "Luna" for the Target Platform. This ensures that you will be set up to work on Papyrus Luna (SR1), which is the only development stream currently supported by the setup model (until Mars development gets under way).

Contributing your changes is easy because Oomph will clone the Papyrus Git repository for you and configure Gerrit push.

Amongst possibly other details, the setup model configures:

  • your IDE with all of the tools needed to edit and build the source projects you choose
  • your workspace with a Git clone and the source projects imported from it that you choose
  • a PDE target that includes all of the dependencies required by Papyrus plus the latest nightly build of Papyrus, itself, so that you can import only a subset of the (many) source projects but still run the complete Papyrus toolset in a run-time workbench
  • Mylyn queries for current open bugs and enhancements in the Papyrus bugzilla database
  • Mylyn queries for the status of the latest Papyrus automated builds, including tests
  • Mylyn queries for open Gerrit reviews
  • preferences enforcing the Papyrus standard compiler and code formatter/template settings

Please report bugs if you see any problems in the setup configuration.

Follow the following link for a step by step installation guide: Oomph setup guide

Installation Details

Following is a description of the basic configuration:

  • The latest Eclipse release pertinent to your use-cases (Modeling, Committer, java, etc)
  • the Papyrus release (matching your Eclipse version), installed from the relevant Papyrus update site
    • Papyrus SDK
    • Papyrus Toolsmiths
    • Papyrus Releng Tools
    • Papyrus User Examples

Additional Useful Tools

  • JAutoDoc
  • install the source version of the Papyrus dependencies (EMF, GMF, MWE2, XTEND, XTEXT, UML2, UML2 Extender SDK) (relevant to your usecases)

Configuration

  • Configure the header template according to your company: Eclipse Preferences -> Java -> JAutodoc
  • Configure your Eclipse.ini file adding this line in the vmargs:
-Duser.name=FirstName LastName (Company) <user@email>
  • Java 11:
    • Eclipse Preferences -> Java -> Compiler
    • Eclipse Preferences -> Java -> Installed JREs
    • VM Arguments for debug mode:
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=11 -Xms768m -Xmx1024m -XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled

Gerrit Configuration

API Management Configuration

There are two way to manage your code version:

Apply Papyrus Configuration Files

Papyrus provides configuration files for Template, CleanUp, and Format for java code. Register these files into your Eclipse Preferences. The Papyrus Code Templates, Java Cleanup and Java Formatter files are available under the Papyrus repository in the folder releng/templates/ and should be used for all your development on Papyrus.

FAQ How do I control the Java formatter

FAQ How can templates make me the fastest coder ever

The note explains how to install the templates in your environment.

How To ...

Each developer must follow the following rule in addition to the aforementioned Developer Charter.

Clone Papyrus Git Repository

The Papyrus code and its documentations are located in a Git repository. In the website http://git.eclipse.org/c/papyrus/org.eclipse.papyrus.git you will find the most recent activity information of the repository and, at the bottom of the page, you will find the URIs of the Git repository (e.g., http://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/papyrus/org.eclipse.papyrus.git).

Follow this quick tutorial if you never used Git before and want to know how to import the source files of one or more Papyrus plugins in your Eclipse workspace.
