Installation of Papyrus for Robotics development environment

Use the Papyrus for Robotics development environment, if you plan to extend or improve Papyrus for Robotics by contributing to its source code. In the sequel, we propose two different methods to install a suitable development environment.

Manual installation

  • Install Papyrus SW designer (which in turn will install Papyrus itself and MARTE) using the following nightly update site within a recent base Eclipse (2020-06).
  • Install the necessary IDE extensions, notably
    • Xtend SDK
    • Acceleo
    • QVT/o (optional, only if you plan to modify QVT transformation files)
    • UML2 extender SDK (if you re-generate static profiles)
  • Import the plugins contained in the git repository (notably in the "plugins" sub-folder) into your Eclipse installation.

Oomph installation

An Oomph installation process is available. It is similar to the one described for Papyrus itself: Papyrus with Oomph. Download the Eclipse installer supporting Oomph. Then, download the Papyrus-for-Robotics setup file.

After opening the Eclipse installer, change to the advanced mode and choose an "Eclipse IDE for committers". Then, use the "add" button, select the "Eclipse projects" catalog and browse the file system to the downloaded Papyrus-for-Robotics setup file (Step 1 in the figure below). Afterwards, you can select Papyrus for Robotics, as shown below.
