I wanted to try out EASE in the latest Artop-4.15.1 environment to script some things. There are several problems I encounter:

First of all, I'm just using 0.8.0 and also only PyDev 8.2.0, since these are the last versions as it seems, that still support Java-8. Artop is not yet ready to run on Java-11.

Even though Javascript seems to work (execution), when I try to compare a getSelection(), if it is an instance of the interface ISignalTriggering, it does not work, since it seems, Javascript does not understand Java Interfaces.

Now I tried Python, but here there seems to be even more problems:

It always starts with Py4J, except when explicitly started with RunAs Jython.
When I use the script integration, where in the script I say to add it to the popupmenu of the ProjectExplorer, it always starts with Py4J, but never with Jython. I tried now almost anywhere to get rid of Py4J / Python, and set everthing to Jython, but nothing seems to work. I added a print("sysver, sys.version) and it always shows version 3.9 python.

I tried also the script-engine : Jython or Jython !Py4J or just !Py4J or !Python
but it always starts with Python 3.9 over Py4J.

Also, I still haven't figured out, how to actually access Java packages like the autosar40 metamodel Java package in python script. In Javascript it seems to work, but not in Python.

Maybe some up-to-date documentation would also help, since most of the documentation and tutorials are from 2014 to 2017 and only seem to use Javascript.

The Javascript version, where at least it does not bail out with "don't know Packages"
  name : artoolsJS
  toolbar : Projecct Explorer 
  popup : Project Explorer
  description : test



var project = getProject('test_ar');
var autosarRelease = org.artop.aal.workspace.preferences.IAutosarWorkspacePreferences.AUTOSAR_RELEASE.get(project);
var editingDomain = org.eclipse.sphinx.emf.util.WorkspaceEditingDomainUtil.getEditingDomain(project, autosarRelease);
var contentTypeID = Packages.autosar40.util.Autosar40ReleaseDescriptor.ARXML_CONTENT_TYPE_ID;

print('Project   ' +;
print('arrelease ' + autosarRelease);

var sel = getSelection();
//var ccf = Packages.autosar40.system.fibex.fibexcore.corecommunication.CoreCommunicationFactory;
//var xx = ccf.createISignalTriggering();
if (sel instanceof Packages.autosar40.system.fibex.fibexcore.corecommunication.impl.ISignalTriggeringImpl) {
	print("sel ISignalTriggering " + sel.shortName)
} else {
	print("sel 'dont know'" + sel)

--> always returns with "sel don't know"

The Python Script looks like:
#! /usr/bin/env python
# name : artools
# toolbar : Projecct Explorer 
# popup : Project Explorer
# script-engine : Jython        <-- no matter what I write here
# description : test


#import autosar40.system.fibex.fibexcore.corecommunication.ISignalTriggering   <-- if enabled, exception package not found
print("sysver ", sys.version)       # <-- I always get Python 3.9 printed here
project = getProject('test_ar')
autosarRelease = org.artop.aal.workspace.preferences.IAutosarWorkspacePreferences.AUTOSAR_RELEASE.get(project)
editingDomain = org.eclipse.sphinx.emf.util.WorkspaceEditingDomainUtil.getEditingDomain(project, autosarRelease)
contentTypeID = Packages.autosar40.util.Autosar40ReleaseDescriptor.ARXML_CONTENT_TYPE_ID   # <-- exception "Name "Packages" is not defined

print('Project   ' +
print('arrelease ' + autosarRelease)

sel = getSelection()
if isinstance(sel, Packages.autosar40.system.fibex.fibexcore.corecommunication.ISignalTriggering): 
    print("sel ISignalTriggering " + sel.shortName)
else :
    print("sel 'dont know'" + sel)

as I do not have your installation; I just can give you some pointers in the right direction:

JavaScript perfectly works with interfaces, eg:
loadModule("/System/Resources", false);
getWorkspace() instanceof org.eclipse.core.internal.resources.WorkspaceRoot

getSelection() returns an org.eclipse.jface.viewers.ISelection, you need to unpack it first to check its contents.

For scripts, to pick a dedicated engine you need to supply the engine-id to the script-engine keyword, see [1]. That would result in
script-engine: org.eclipse.ease.python.jython

The 'Packages' keyword you used in your python scripts will not work there, as this is a Rhino specific keyword [2]. In jython you use full qualified names or use imports [3]. Basically each language has its specific ways to connect to java. There is no universal approach that works for all of them.
