Hello,

How can I integrate the UML2Tools plugin with my RCP application?
I wanna create and open UML diagrams in my application but I don't know
how to call this plugin.

Thanks in advance for all replies,

Nogueira

Nogueira,

The UML2Tools has quite a vast list of requirements, which go way beyond
what is in the basic RCP runtime or SDK.

Check out the "Build Dependencies" in the download page:

http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/downloads/?project=uml2t ools

You might not need the entire Eclipse SDK, just Platform (which is more
than the RCP anyway) should be enough. But you will still need EMF, EMF
Query, Transaction, Validation, UML2, OCL, GEF and GMF.

Cheers,

Rafael

Hi Rafael

I got the impression that Nogueira was asking how to call a uml editor
(eg clazz) in RCP, in effect how to build a RCP UML tool.

I did something similar using only clazz but I would like the ability to
add my own profiles to the class diag. The way I did this was to copy
the solution generated by GMF's RCP output (my RCP contains my own DSL
editor (non UML) plus the uml2tools class diag editor). Since I have my
own DSL editor, the dependencies are covered but I am not sure if this
is the best method for doing this. ie is there a class that allows a
user to select their choice of uml2tools diag eg class, use case etc?

regards
Steve

Hi,

I was wondering if there are any further developments in this subject. I
too would like to use the UML2Tools in a standalone RCP application, but
I don't have a clue where to start.

Tony.

We have tried this RCP project inside Omondo in 2006. The project was made by a talented master student (Brahim) and he received his degree with grade A+
The RCP UML application was working well but couldn't really be used in a professional project without heavy long term financial investment. We have therefore decided to stop the project and not to upgrade it since Eclipse 3.2.
After this experience I would say that the only way it could work is to bundle Eclipse + jar of modeling plugins inside an RCP application and then add your source code.

UML tools need other plugins such as GMF, GEF, EMF, UML2 etc...it is impossible to do another way except if you develop from scratch these plugins.
