Hi all,

I intend to use PAPYRUS to develop a system model. But I did not see yet the possibility to generate documentation from a model.

My questions:
- How to generate a document containing the view of all diagrams and associated data ?
- How to generate a document containing only a view of the system model (sub-system, ...) ?

Can anyone guide me on this subject ?

Thanks for your help !

Hi Philip,

Papyrus itself doesn't provide any specific support for Documentation generation. Users typically rely on external tools such as GenDoc2 or Birt:

However, GenDoc has not been updated to Luna yet, and last time I checked, Birt didn't provide any connector for EMF/UML models (At least not in open source; I'm not sure about the proprietary connectors).

I think GenDoc is supposed to join the Eclipse Release Train for the Mars release, so we can expect at least an initial version in the incoming months.

You can also use pxDoc and its integration with Papyrus.

pxDoc is a new way of generating documents with a dedicated language (only ~30 keywords) integrated with the Java world. Since pxDoc works on the Java level directly, you can take any Java object as input for your generation. You can have a look at the pxDoc documentation, and the pxDoc-Papyrus integration.

Note that you will need to install Xtext and pxDoc before installing the pxDoc-Papyrus integration.

Have fun with pxDoc !

Kind regards,
the pxDoc Team

In the past, I have use Apache POI to create data catalogues in OOXML format, and Freemarker to generate HTML based documentation (Javadoc style works very well for Class/Entity Relationship models. The key is being able to use the UML2 classes from EMF/UML2 to traverse the model. We also use this approach for generating XML Schema.
