Hello,

I have a working editor that I have created in Sirius and I would like to convert it as well as all generated files from my ecore model into an eclipse plugin so that I can create more test cases for it.

I haven't found any documentation about converting a Sirius project and the dependent generated files to a plugin so any help would be appreciated.

Hi

Your Sirius project almost certainly is an Eclipse plugin already. (The .project file has a org.eclipse.pde.PluginNature.)

If not, use Configure->Convert to Plugin Projects...

Regards

Maybe I need to change the question. Currently the only way I can get people to use my tool is to have them download the ecore project and its generated projects, and download the Sirius specification project, and open them all in the project explorer in Eclipse before launching a runtime application in order to make a new modeling project and then start creating models with my tool. I am instead trying to convert my project to a plugin in order to allow them to make models right away in the original Eclipse window.

Also I can't find the convert to plugin option that you mentioned
index.php/fa/41264/0/

And this might be a dumb question but I don't have any .project files in my project folders... Is it a file that we have to create in order to setup the project as a plugin project?

Hi

You most certainly have .project files, however in this respect EClipse is dishonest by offering MIcrosoft-style helpfulness. Use the menu option to remove the *.resources filter. Almost the first thing I change whenever I create a new Workspace.

The conversion option is probably missing because you already have a plugin project.

OK. You don't mean plugin (project). You mean deployable plugin. In the old days I would use the predecessor of File->Export->Deployable Plugins and Features. Nowadays since I'm shipping bigger things I use Tycho; powerful but a lot of learning.

Hello Hongbin,

This is more an Eclipse plugin packaging question than a Sirius question. You can find many tutorials on Internet about the solutions given by Ed (thanks).
You can also look how to create a "Feature project" [1] and an "Update project" [2], or you can check our tutorial[3] based on the sample "Basic Family".

Best regards,
Steve
