Hi

I'm new to Eclipse but not to web dev. I'm trying to get started with UML on Eclipse and I'm trying to follow alonga this: www. vogella. com/articles/UML/article.html and I've gotten as far as installation.

I'm using Eclipse Version: 3.7.1
Build id: R3_7_1

So, hopefully you can see the attached screenshot showing my best guess at trying to find the software he's talking about. It's not there.

Eclipse Help says:

1) Download and run Eclipse 3.4

2) Select the Help > Software Updates ... menu

3) Select the Available Software tab and expand the Ganymede\Model and Model Development tree item.

I'm not using 3.4, there is no "software updates" menu, and there's no Ganymede option on the page you see in my screenshot.


I do keep getting an error: No repository found at http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/downloads/?project=uml2tools.


I have managed to install the UML2 Extender SDK but I've no idea if that should give me UML (it doesn't) or whether that's an add-on to a basic package that I'm missing.

What's my next move?

All the best
J

That's very old.

Probably you'd be better to use Eclipse 4.2 and the Juno update site.

No one is maintaining UML2 Tools and we're going to terminate the
project. If you want a graphical UML editor, you should use Papyrus.

I'd suggest installing the Modeling Package from the Juno release and
using Help -> Install Modeling Components to install Papyrus. If you
have questions about Papyrus use the eclipse.papyrus forum. For
questions about the UML2 API, use eclipse.modeling.mdt.uml2.

This is how I installed UML2 in Eclipse Juno

1. download rog.eclipse.emf.ocl-update.zip from https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/attachment.cgi?id=173482
2. unzip and install in eclipse
3. download UML2 tools SDK zip from http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/downloads/?project=uml2tools
4. unzip and install in eclipse

Apologies for late reply, but .. what Modeling Package? I've found the Juno repository (yay!) but a search in that reveals no Modeling Package. There's an EMF Eclipse Modeling Framework SDK, an Eclipse Modeling Discovery UI, and so on.

I could try a few, but I keep getting failed installations, so I was hoping we could be specific about which package I should be trying to install, then I can work on why it's failing to install.

Good here innit Smile

Cheers
J

In general all such packages are just conveniences and are assembled
from the components available in the corresponding release train repo.

OK, stupid question .. is that like a Linux distribution .. a complete installation of Eclipse including the most common tools for a particular sort of user. In other words, that's a new installation of Eclipse?

It's not a component that I install from within my existing Eclipse installation .. right?

I mean, that's OK, I've not gotten started using Eclipse yet really as you probably guessed.

So then I'll have the other problem of wanting to add PHP to that. But hey .. my PHP doesn't work either so at least this way I have part of it Smile

John,

Yes, it's complete other than needing a JDK. As I said, you can
assemble other components from the common repo, so it's always possible
to start with the basic package and add what you want...
