Installation

TTS is based on the Eclipse Modeling Tools available at http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/, Helios(3.6) or Indigo(3.7) releases. So install it first. Alternatively you can also install modelling components on an Eclipse IDE for Java Developers but this is much more time consuming and error-prone.

Based on your Eclipse installation, apply the following installation instructions. Update Sites can be installed via the Eclipse Update Manager under Help-Install New Software… :

  • For Helios:
  1. Install Groovy via its Eclipse Update Site available at http://dist.springsource.org/release/GRECLIPSE/e3.6/.
  2. Install AspectJ via its Eclipse Update Site available at http://download.eclipse.org/tools/ajdt/36/update.
  3. Install Squam, available at http://squam.info/ocleditor/community/3.6/update/.
  4. Install the latest BIRT release via its Update site, located at http://download.eclipse.org/birt/update-site/2.6.
  5. Install Xpand, available at http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/m2t/xpand/updates/.
  6. Install Papyrus, available at http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/papyrus/.
