Henshin - Installation

Install from update site

Henshin is a plug-in for recent versions of the Eclipse Modeling Tools (last tested version: 2019-12). To obtain the most recent Eclipse version, go to the download page and download the Eclipse Modeling Tools.

To install Henshin, open Eclipse, go to Help -> Install New Software... and insert one of the following update site URLs:

At a minimum, install the Henshin SDK feature. From version 1.6.0, you can choose an additional powerful feature for variant management (Henshin Variability SDK), and source versions of both features (for inspecting the features' source code in Eclipse).

Instructions for installing legacy versions

If you want to install a legacy version of Henshin (<= 1.4.0) in a newer Eclipse version (>= Eclipse Oxygen), please use the following instructions (thanks to Joel Greenyer for providing these instructions):

  • Install GMF Tooling v3.2.1 via Update site (right click -> copy...)
  • Install M2Eclipse via Update site (right click -> copy...)
  • Install the required Henshin version.


You can also get the latest version of the source code directly from our Git repository (weblink):
